For projects that require board thickness to be beyond exact, the New JET 15” Straight Knife planer gets the job done with ease. This sweet machine features a monster 3-horsepower motor with two speed gear box to adjust your feed rate for a better finished surface. The innovative Precision Air Strut System (PASS™) provides consistent upward pressure on the cutterhead, reducing the chance of board snipe. Its rock-solid table is constructed of cast iron and features Steel infeed/outfeed table extensions that conveniently fold out of the way. And because even the coolest power planer is one of the messiest machines on the planet, JET’s angled 4″ dust port keeps your dust hose out of the way for easy hookup on your shop’s dust collection system.
