Designed with the space limitations faced by many of todays woodworkers, the JET 8" Jointer/Planer packs the capabilities of the jointer and planer into a single, space-saving footprint. Combining the jointer and planer, two of the most-used core woodworking machines also saves money.
Power with Precision-
The Jet 8" Jointer/Planer is powered by a 13A, 120V (only) motor. A paddle-style switch controls the motor. This switch has a removable key that helps prevent usage of the machine when you are not present. A push button next to the paddle switch resets the automatic thermal protection circuit.
The motor power is delivered to the cutterhead with a drive belt for smooth, consistent operation. The cutterhead spins at 9000 RPM to give the best overall performance with the various wood species and grain types you may encounter. The motor also powers the feed rollers for the planning function using a chain drive. The entire drive system is enclosed within a housing that keeps you safe while helping to protect the mechanism
from dust contamination.
The precision machined, all-steel cutterhead is equipped with two high-quality knives. The knives are 8-1/4"-long and 0.060" thick and made from premium steel so they take and hold a sharp edge. The knives are retained with tried and true wedge blocks and gib screws. A jackscrew is located at each end of the knives to make setting critical heights
easier and more accurate. A knife setting gauge is also provided to make setting the knives fast and easy.
This cutterhead is used for both jointing and planning operations. The large diameter and mass of the all steel cutterhead body adds considerable inertia that helps keep the Jet 8" Jointer/Planer cutting smoothly.
Jointing Table and Fence-
The cast aluminum jointing table is 29" long and 8-1/4" wide overall. The table surface is precisely machined to be flat and smooth. The Jet 8" Jointer/Planer is capable of a
maximum cut depth of 1/8" with the cut adjusted using a single knob at the end of the infeed table. A handy cut depth gauge is provided at the front edge of the infeed table. The infeed table is locked in position with a pair of finger-operated knobs.
The extruded aluminum fence is 4-1/8" tall and 21" long. The fence can be used at 90-
degrees to the table surface for squaring stock or it can be tilted up to 45-degrees (right) for bevel cuts. The fence is locked in place with an easy-to-use handle on the rear.
The planer table surface is 17-1/2" long (with the included extension table) by 8-1/2" wide. The table is raised and lowered with a hand crank that plugs into the top of the Jet 8" Jointer/Planer. A handy scale next to the planer infeed opening shows the current table to knife distance and makes setup fast and easy. The planer table moves up and down on four lead screws, one in each corner of the main cabinet for maximum stability. The table is secured for making cuts with a single locking handle.
The Jet 8" Jointer/Planer has a maximum planer thickness capacity of 4-1/8", max cut
width of 8-1/4" and a maximum cut depth of 5/64". The Jet 8" Jointer/Planer will also
plane work pieces with a minimum length of 6"! For the best overall performance the Jet
8" Jointer/Planer has a fixed feed rate of 19.5 FPM. (feet per minute)
The Jet 8" Jointer/Planer comes with a single dust shroud assembly that can be
installed for either jointing or planer functions. This chute is attached using finger operated knobs that make installation fast and tool free. The dust shroud is also designed as a safety interlock for the jointer-planer. This means the machine will not operate unless the dust shroud is installed in either the jointing or planning mode.
Jet also include a hose adapter that allows using either a 2-1/2" or 4" diameter hose so
that the Jet 8" Jointer/Planer is compatible with your shop-vac or dust collection unit. The hose adapter also works in both jointing and planer modes.
Though designed as a bench top machine the Jet 8" Jointer/Planer can be installed on the optional stand (Stock No. 707402) to make it a stand-alone machine. This all-steel
stand is easy to assemble and very sturdy to keep the Jet 8" Jointer/Planer stable during use. Its design helps to retain the small footprint to maximize shop floor space.
If you have a small shop or workspace, the Jet 8" Jointer/Planer could be for you. Despite its space saving footprint, the Jet 8" Jointer/Planer includes many full-sized
machine features, accuracy and power. The user-friendly features mean you will be up and running in no time.
