A jointer creates a flat surface on wood, and yes, it can be used to correct bow and warp on one side of a board at a time. "A planer is a thicknesser. It takes a thick board and makes it thinner. ... At the same time, the planer will also make the rough side both smooth, and parallel to the other side.
JJ-6L-M - planer with long cast iron tables, designed for amateur use. Due to the fact that it is executed on the same layout scheme as the professional Jet models, it is precise and convenient in operation.
Structurally, it consists of two parts. In the bottom, playing the role of the pedestal-stand, is a single-phase asynchronous ("induction") motor with a power of a little more than a kilowatt and a shroud collecting hood with a 100-mm nozzle for connection to the exhaust system. The upper part consists of a cast-iron base where the planing shaft is located, and cast-iron work tables with the corresponding equipment consisting of a protective casing and the workpiece rest. Both tables are regulated in height by screw mechanisms, driven by handwheels. By moving the feeding (front) table, adjust the depth of planing, for which there is a corresponding marking; The receiver (rear) is moved only during the adjustment operations while the machine is serviced.
The casting stop is cast-iron, with a mechanism for adjusting the tilt (it is possible in both directions). The selected position is locked by a threaded clip.
The knife shaft is equipped with three knives, which allow re-sharpening. Their size is the same as that of the professional jet fuels with a similar planing width.
Jet JPT-410 - combined machine for planing and thicknessing with a working width of 407 mm. This value is quite large by the standards of professional thicknessing machines, and by the standards of jointing - and is typical for equipment of a higher industrial class. This combination of characteristics makes this model attractive not only from the point of view of saving the working space, but also extending the scope of application.
The design of the machine is one of the most successful on the market: the wide use of massive cast iron parts guarantees accurate work without vibration, with the topmounting the top module rises completely and does not interfere with work or chip removal, a powerful three-phase motor ensures high productivity and reliability. Special attention deserves a convenient eccentric mechanism for adjusting the position of the tables, both the supply and the receiving, which is necessary when installing the helical shaft (option).
When choosing between two specialized or one combined machine, it should be taken into account that these models are almost as accurate, convenient and efficient as specialized ones, but will require somewhat more frequent servicing of the thicknesser part in case of intensive operation.
In the basic version, the JPT-410 is equipped with a three-knife planing shaft, as an alternative, a helical shaft is provided, which is equipped with hard-alloy cutting inserts. It is more reliable and easier to operate (no adjustments are necessary), but due to the consecutive entry of the knives into the workpiece it works quietly and with less vibrations.
Combined Jet Jet JPT-310 is optimal for use in workshops with limited space as a replacement for individual thicknesser and jointer. This model is in demand both by lovers of woodworking and by professionals. In addition to significant work space savings, the JPT-310 also provides cost savings when purchasing.
According to the main characteristics and convenience of work, this combined machine is not inferior to individual thicknesser and jointer. Long and massive cast-iron tables create a base sufficient for working with parts up to 2-3 meters long. Concerning the specialized machine, the fence stopper is slightly easier: it is not made of cast iron but of an aluminium profile. On the other hand, these models have a rare advantage: a convenient eccentric height adjustment has not only a feeding but also a receiving table. This is necessary, first of all, when replacing the planer shaft with helical, the cutting inserts of which are not adjustable in height.
To move from joining to thicknessing, it is sufficient to raise the upper module consisting of tables and frame and reset the chipper case, the previously made settings do not get knocked off. This design gives advantages both in operation and in servicing the machine.
The shaft helical, available for Jet JPT-310 as an option, is widely in demand among professionals. Its main advantages are low noise level at work, clean cutting of knots, no wood breaks, long service life of carbide tetrahedral blades, no need for sharpening and adjustment.
The Jet Tools JPT-310HH Combination Planer/Thicknesser Machine with Helical Cutterhead is optimally suited for use in woodworking workshops with limited space. The machine replaces the requirement of an individual Planer (Jointer) and a Thicknesser.
This particular model is equally at home in both the demanding professional, as well as the amateur workshop, offering additional savings in your required workspace and is extremely cost efficient.
To change from jointing (planing) operations to thicknessing mode, it is quick and easy to raise the upper module consisting of tables and frame, and to reset the Dust Extraction Hood and vica versa. This design also offer advantages both in operation and in servicing of the machine.
The Helical Cutterhead, installed on the JPT-310HH, is usually only found on much more expensive machines. Helical Cutterheads have numerous advantages over standard three or four knife heads. These include much lower operating noise level, cleaner cutting of knots in the timber, much longer service life due to the multiple tetrahedral carbide knives, and very importantly, no need for complicated setup jigs and fiddling to get the cutters set at the right height.

The JPT-410HH Jet is a helical head combination machine for surfacing and thicknessing with a 407 mm working width. This value is quite large by the standards of professional jointing machines, and by the standards of jointing - and is entirely characteristic of equipment of a higher industrial class. This combination of characteristics makes the model attractive not only in terms of saving working space, but also expanding the scope.
The machine design is one of the most successful on the market: the extensive use of massive cast-iron parts ensures accurate work without vibrations; when jointing, the upper module rises completely and does not interfere with work or stripping, a powerful three-phase motor ensures high performance and reliability. Special attention is given to a convenient eccentric mechanism for adjusting the position of the tables, both the feed and the receiver, which is necessary when installing the helical shaft (optional).
The helical shaft included in the basic equipment is equipped with carbide cutting inserts. It is safer and easier to operate (no adjustments are needed), and due to the sequential entry of knives into the work piece, it works quieter and with less vibrations.
Designed especially for the hobby woodworker, the JWP-12 is compact and very capable. Its powerful 1,800W motor quickly removes material up to 2.5mm thick with each pass. The block is fitted with two resharpenable HSS blades and gives 18,000 cuts/min, this coupled with the feed speed of 7m/min ensures an excellent ripple-free finish.

This combination Planer/Thicknesser is a light industrial rated machine that is used to plane wood to the correct width and thickness.Because it is also a surfacer, it allows the user to get rid of twists, cups and bows prior to thicknessing.
This combination Surfacer/Thicknesser (also called jointer/planer) is a light industrial rated machine with accurately ground, cast iron planing and thicknessing tables, together with a cast iron main frame.
The Jet 54A is a unique niche in the professional equipment market: it is equally attractive for both private workshops and woodworkers with its high precision, ease of adjustment and durability. The main advantage on the background of analogues is the long, perfectly flat tables made of cast iron. Of the same material, the body, contoured fence and mechanism for its adjustment in angle and reach.
The settings of the tables and the planer stop, once produced before commissioning, are retained for a long period, and otherwise this machine rarely requires attention. The only element of construction is a three-knucked planer shaft requiring regular maintenance. The blades installed in it can be re-sharpened many times (the minimum acceptable width is 15 mm at the initial 19 mm). To improve operational and operational characteristics, the machine can be converted by replacing the standard shaft with helical (option art JJ6HH-CA). Instead of 3 blades, he has 27 carbide cutting inserts, which are arranged in several rows in a spiral, which provides a consistent and angled entry into the workpiece. The segments themselves are very wear-resistant, besides, only some of the entire kit is usually damaged. Blunted inserts are turned over by the other side - four cutting edges. Also, the helical shaft is characterized by better performance in planing quality, especially when working with gnarled workpieces.
