Shop Fox W1857 8" x 72" Dovetail Jointer with Mobile Base

Step up from a benchtop to a larger capacity 8" jointer.

The W1857 Jointer with Mobile base is a feature packed machine with so much to offer.

The 9" x 72" precision-ground cast-iron table is ready to surface plane, edge joint, bevel joint, and square stock.

The tables are easily adjusted by heavy-duty cast-iron handwheels and move along dovetail ways.

The easy-to-use fence has built-in stops to simplify adjustments between 45°, 90°, and 135°.

Also, you'll get 25% more cuts per minute with the 4-knife cutterhead, which leaves a smoother finish and requires less sanding than the typical 3-knife models.

The single-sided knives are made of high-speed steel (HSS). HSS has been heat treated for hardness and wear resistance, which keeps a sharp edge longer than other carbon steels.

Additional features include a thermal protection switch, built-in mobile base, and integrated 4" dust port.

Like all Shop Fox jointers, the W1857 comes with a 2-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects. (Consumables are not covered by the warranty.)

The W1857 manual was written by our U.S. based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information. The complete and easy-to-read manual makes it easier to assemble and maintain your jointer.

The Woodstock Customer Service and Technical Support Teams are U.S. based. Parts and accessories for the jointer may be available online and shipped from the Woodstock parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
