Jet 6” Helical Head Benchtop Jointer JJ-6HHBT

Jet has announced a new 6″ benchtop jointer with helical head JJ-6HHBT . What’s great about a helical head model is that the cutting head uses several smaller blades and if one of them gets damaged, then you only need to replace that single one instead of replacing the entire set of blades. And with this being a benchtop model, means you don’t need the additional floor space of a larger unit as it conveniently sits atop work bench real estate. Check out the press release below for more deets.

La Vergne, TN – JET ® has introduced a new 6” Helical Head Benchtop Jointer (JJ-6HHBT) that combines consistently smooth and accurate edge-planing performance with space-saving design, stability and durability.

The cutterhead assembly of the 6” Helical Head Benchtop Jointer is equipped with 14 carbide-tipped, helical-head blades in two spiral rows. The cutterhead’s individual, four- sided blade inserts can be easily rotated or replaced when dulled or damaged. Speed of the 2”-diameter cutterhead is 10,000 (no-load) rpm.

“Squaring board edges for joinery or finishing; beveling boards for trim work; flattening of warped board faces – these are just a few of the essential woodworking tasks performed quickly and dependably by our new 6” Helical Head Benchtop Jointer,” said Tobias Bridges, JET’s Product Development Director – Wood. “Plus, the jointer’s durable construction and compact size make it a great choice for enthusiasts, furniture makers, small to medium-size production shops and jobsites.”

The sturdy benchtop jointer features precision ground, cast iron infeed/outfeed tables, which, together, measure 28-5/8” x 6-1/4”. Depth-of-cut is set by rotating a large knob beneath the infeed table, according to a scale on the front of the machine. Maximum depth of cut is 1/8” and maximum width cutting capacity is 6”.

The jointer’s cast iron fence measures 22-3/4” x 4-3/8”. The fully adjustable fence tilts from -45 o to +45 o with positive stops at -45 o , 90 o , and + 45 o . A push stick and push block are included with the jointer.

The benchtop jointer is powered by a 1 HP, 115V, 60Hz, motor. The motor is operated by an on-off toggle switch on the front/center of the tool. A removable key allows the switch to be locked in the “off” position for security.

Efficient dust collection is provided by an integrated blower motor that directs chips and debris away from the cutterhead into the included dust collection bag, which attaches to the 2-1/2”-diameter dust port on the lefthand side of the jointer. The jointer also can be attached to a shop’s dust collection system, using a 4” adapter.

The JET 6” Helical Head Benchtop Jointer is covered by a three-year warranty, as well as JET’s RED Assurance TM , the industry’s most dependable service and support guarantee program.
