    Correct me if I'm wrong, but they have that labeled as a helical cutter head, but the cutters appear to be linear.

    Can't correct you
    When your right your right:D

    I was a little miffed when mine came because of that , but then I tried it out.

    Aren't the carbide cutters staggered in a helical( spiral) pattern around the shaft? That's what it looks like.

    Yes, it's my understanding that there is, um...a relationship...between the two companies.

    Yep, you're right, Marty. Now I see that I was just looking at it wrong. I was just focused on the single row of cutters and not looking at their position relative to the next row.

    They create the effect of a "Helical cutter head " That's Add Speak . Also known as dancing close to the edge of truth. Whatever it is it cuts quite smooth

    With the staggered cutter layout it should cut with very little stress on the machine as only one or two cutters would be actually starting to make a cut at any point in time. Looks to be a good set-up!

    As a matter of fact I have been looking at thicknessers myself. I wanted to get one for my son's birthday. I have one, but he borrows it from time to time to use in his business, so I thought if I got him one I could recover mine.

    There is one with the replacable square cutters which I would like but the price is way higher than a "normal" machine but I don't use mine very much at all, so finding it hard to justify the cost.

    Most of the time when I "thickness" wood I cut it close to size on the band-saw then whack it through the drum sander until its spot on the required size.

    The chip vacuum feature would be worth having though, mine just spits it all out on the floor and everywhere else.

    On the other side of the argument ....................when I kark it, he'll have two!!!

    Decisions decisions!

    I have the Dewalt and love it. I've had it for 3 1/2 years haven't replaced the blades yet. However I am just starting to see some lines on pieces in the last few weeks so I'll probably dip into my stash of blades soon. Great tool.

    An accessory chute for a dust collector is vital! Not only does the machine make a mess, but all the chips can get back underneath where they wreak havoc on the feed rollers. Either it will cause the rollers to lose traction and feed the board inconsistently, or they'll mash into the surface causing divots, unless you run the dust collector with the accessory chute.

    Very good point, I run a cyclone and my rigid shop vac when using it. If I don't it ends up looking like winter in the shop and then there's a ton of cleaning the shop and the machine afterwards. I use my chips and shavings from the planer to get my fires started in the winter.

    If that was on facebook I'd be thinking scam. If it looks too good to be true it usually is. My father in law got taken for something this year. I can't recall what it was though. He ordered it and it never was received.

    Yeah, that's what I figured too.

    Same website had a 14" bandsaw for about the same price....

    I looked at the site and clicked on the paypal link to see if it was real . There is a link on the bottom of the paypal page to return to the Splintsimages page only it says 邢台晟达康假肢矫形器装配有限公司

    So who knows check with paypal and see if there have been complaints about that site
