Details: The JET 12in. Planer/Jointer gives you both a jointer and planer so you don't have to choose - you can have both. This versatile machine features quick changeover between jointing and planing functions, an extra-large aluminum extruded fence with centered controls for quick adjustments, a built-in dust chute capable of handling both planing and jointing operations, and a powerful 3 HP induction motor that can handle the toughest lumber. Best of all, the fence can stay put when changing over functions. Cutting Width (in.): 12, Cuts Per Minute (CPM): 5,500, Cutting Depth (in.): 1/8, Amps: 12 1/2, Tool Length (in.): 55, Case Included: NoCombining a jointer and a planer into one machine, the Jet JJP-12 12-Inch Jointer Planer is a powerful, space-saving tool ideal for creating an even surface and thickness on your work piece. Custom built for smooth transition between functions, it ensures precise cuts with features including three high-quality knives, an adjustable outfeed table for supporting long work pieces, and large, ergonomic knobs for extra-fine adjustment control.
Any woodworker, whether building a backyard deck or a commercial structure, will appreciate the Jet JJP-12's all-in-one, precision-cut capability. This machine makes a no-tool switch from jointer to planer in just a few quick motions, allowing you the capabilities of both machines without compromising your work space.
Both functions offer a full 12-inch width capacity and 55-inch tables, so no extra ripping process is needed when you switch between modes. And, in addition to its compact bench-top design, a rugged steel stand is included for those times floor positioning is more convenient.
Easy-Handling Adjustments for Maximum Accuracy
The Jet JJP-12's oversized handwheel and knobs fit comfortably in your hand, allowing for extremely fine-tuned adjustments. The wide-spaced handles make it easy to stabilize stock to the heavy-duty, 43-by-6-inch fence. Particularly handy for complex projects, the fence stays in place between function changes and sets easily for bevel cuts up to 45 degrees.
Expert Materials Offer Enhanced Operation
The Jet JJP-12 runs on a heavy-duty 13 Amp motor, supplying the power you need for a variety of cutting applications. Its table top is precision-flattened to ensure a smooth, even cut. The tough, cast-iron infeed and outfeed tables adjust individually to give the work piece superior support. Cutting is performed with three top-quality knives, which are fitted to the high-speed steel cutter head.
The JJP-12 also includes a premium dust collection shroud, which rotates in both settings and has a standard four-inch outlet port, allowing for efficient dust collection that cuts your clean-up time to a minimum.
Top-Notch Features for Safe, Consistent Woodworking
During jointer operation, the bridge-style cutter guard's base-located adjustment knob allows wood to pass evenly beneath the guard, preventing you from pushing down directly over the cutter. The planer function's cutter head prevents kickback with gravity-operated fingers, while its metal infeed roller and rubber-coated outfeed roller maintain a consistent non-marring feed rate.
For both operation modes, security is a no-brainer, thanks to the self-engaging locks that fall into place when you make the switch between functions. For your additional safety, the magnetic on/off switch has a built-in limiter to prevent start-up after power outages and while you switch between modes.
The JJP-12 is backed by a five year warranty.
About JET: A History of Sharing New, Feature-Rich Products
Opened in 1958 after the founder of the company, Leslie P. Sussman, took the first Boeing Jet Airplane trip from Seattle, Washington to Japan, JET began as a small dealer that sold air hoists and trolleys out of a single hardware store in Seattle. Over the years, JET has carried everything from snowmobiles, transmitter radios, and forklifts to nylon stockings, but by the early 1970s, metalworking had become the base of their business line. And by the 1980s, JET had expanded into the realm of woodworking. Today, you'll find that JET offers a wide range of popular woodworking tools that are backed with best-in-class features and excellent service.
