An authentic helical head

Many planing machines available claim to have a helical head, where in fact they only have a spiral segmented head. This Sherwood 6in Benchtop Jointer features an authentic helical head with 14 individual carbide cutters in two rows wrapped around the head. This jointer is perfect for planing difficult and figured timbers with minimal chance of grain tear out.


14 x 4 sided carbide cutters

If you haven’t heard already, carbide cutters are the way to go. Each cutter is 14mm square and sharpened on all four edges. Each cutter fixes directly to the indexed spiral head via a steel grub screw. The edge of each cutter is slightly radiused so to ease the shearing cutting action. When dull or damaged, due to the indexed head, it is very easy to release the carbide cutter and turn to expose a brand-new cutting edge. Each carbide has 4 sharp edges - no sharpening required!


1500W motor

Though it’s a compact machine, the Sherwood 6in Benchtop Helical Head Jointer offers a substantial 1500W (2.0HP) motor. Because the shearing cutting action of the spiral head puts drag on the motor. This benchtop jointer requires more power than usual to operate effectively. No worries, this Sherwood benchtop jointer has all the power you will need.


Cast iron worktable and fence

Weighing in at 29kg’s, this benchtop jointer sports plate aluminium cabinet and cast iron worktable and fence. This unit is compact, dense yet still easy to store or move around. The extra weigh means this benchtop machine sits rock solid on its rubber feet with no chance of vibration. The fence also features heavy duty locking handles so it may be firmly secured at any angle between 45 and 90 degrees.


Convenient and quiet

This 6in Benchtop machine is convenient and quiet. Convenient because its compact and easy to move and store. Quiet because spiral cutter heads operate far more quietly than a conventional straight blade cutter head. Work away in the middle of the night in your tiny workshop without disturbing the peace.
