WOOD magazine review

spiral cutterhead, dead-flat tables

Review Summary

This is one of two models, out of ten tested, with a perfectly flat bed and fence. The spiral cutterhead proved both a blessing and a curse. Its durable carbide cutters performed exceptionally on figured wood, might last for years, and create small chips—even when face-jointing—which won’t clog a dust chute. But its cutterhead bogs down easily in cuts 1/16" or deeper, and jointed surfaces require additional smoothing.
