Jet Combination Planer Thicknesser

The JET- JPT310HH combination machine is a dream machine that is designed to perform both its task of planing and thicknessing with accuracy and ease. This is a no-compromise option to save space and have a machine that will perform at a professional level.

The Helical head comes with 56 carbide inserts along four rows. The carbide has a hardness of 95 Rc. Theses blades will last almost twenty times as long as a HSS standard blade and generates about a quarter of the noise energy. This makes it a perfect machine for those people who have an issue with machinery noise.

The other advantage of the helical head is the smooth finish that the blades leave and the huge reduction in tearout of difficult grain, compared to normal blade machines. The dust extraction hose is positioned to remove even the tiniest chips from fine cuts leaving the surface of your timber blemish free.

One of the most appealing features is the dual opening of the jointer tables when changing  modes. Simply undo the eccentric lock and the whole jointer assembly remains in tact and lifts up to 90°. The whole operation takes a matter of seconds and your jointer setting remains undisturbed.

The cast iron jointer tables are precision machined to allow your material to slide across the surface with very little resistance. Both the infeed and outfeed tables are adjustable. With a helical head machine the outfeed table is adjusted to the blades, not the other way round, as with a traditional cutterhead machine.

The precision fence is extruded aluminium that has been milled to ensure a flat surface. It is fully adjustable to any angle.

The thicknesser table height adjustment runs on a single, large diameter centre column, providing full support where it’s most needed, directly under the cutterhead.  
Two rubber feed rollers are designed to prevent any end snipe, there is no movement at all in the table or the timber as the pressure changes from one roller to another. There is a digital readout on the height winder for accurate adjustment.

An important safety feature is the micro-switches on the dust guard and the jointer table to prevent the machine being switched on whilst blades are exposed.

JET Machinery is subject to rigorous factory checks to ensure that the quality of the finished product is consistently of the highest standard. This machine is no exception and although fine tuning is vey easy, there is little need to do anything as it has been so well prepared before it leaves the factory.

There is no doubt the JET- JPT310HH is a beautiful machine, it is extremely well finished and has loads of power in its 3HP motor. As a combination machine it really does give you the best of both worlds.

Key Features

    •    307mm x 255mm capacity
    •    BYRD Helical head
    •    Single-handed, opening of both tables together to change from planing to thicknessing in seconds
    •    Cast iron jointer tables, precision planed to ensure optimum sliding of the workpieces
    •    Eccentric rod support on outfeed table facilitates hollow joint adjustment
    •    Precision fence, push wood handle and adjustable cutterhead guard for extra safety

With the convenience of single-handed table lift (no need to remove the fence), switching from surface planning to thicknessing cannot be easier. Long tables and a precision fence ensure accuracy and a super finish every time.

Easy eccentric rod adjustment of the infeed tables plus adjustment of the outfeed tables make setting of the machine a simple process.

100mm dust extraction outlet keeps the machine clean when connected to a suitable extractor system. This versatile machine features 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 timbers.

A heavy-duty, fully welded steel base cabinet houses the motor and the thicknessing table mechanism, while providing solid mounting for the associated controls and support for the surfacing tables and fence assemblies. Best of all, the fence can stay put when changing over functions. The surfacing tables are cast iron, 1400mm long and precision planed to ensure the most accurate results.

There is no doubt the JET- JPT310HH is a beautiful machine, it is extremely well finished and has loads of power in its 3HP motor. As a combination machine it really does give you the best of both worlds.

Note: 15A plug requires 15A circuit.
