  • Spiral cutter head for JP0610

    Has anyone toyed with the idea of replacing their cutter head (straight knives) with spiral cutter head? If so, was it worth it?

    I have a Dewalt planer and have straight knives. It works great. But i've also heard that the spirial cutters work much better and smoother. If I used mine more and had the spare cash, I might consider it, but for now it works fine.

    Congratulations to Mr. "the sky is falling" Al Gore, nominated the new Village Idiot!

      "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
      John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)
