Shop Fox W1858 8" x 72" Dovetail Jointer w/ Helical Cutterhead & Mobile Base

All the best features on an 8" jointer.

The W1857 Jointer is a feature-packed machine with so much to offer, especially the 4-row helical cutterhead with 36 indexable carbide inserts.

The inserts slice through wood at an angle to achieve a sheering effect. You’ll get quieter operation, and most importantly, a significantly better finish with less tear-out.

Each insert can be rotated three times to expose a new, sharp edge. They don't require finicky adjustment and setup that traditional straight-knife jointers do. You'll save valuable time and money from the start.

The 9" x 72" precision-ground cast-iron table is ready to surface plane, edge joint, bevel joint, and square stock.

The tables are easily adjusted by heavy-duty cast-iron handwheels and move along dovetail ways.

The easy-to-use fence has built-in stops to simplify adjustments between 45°, 90°, and 135°.

Additional features include a thermal protection switch, built-in mobile base, and integrated 4" dust port.

Like all Shop Fox jointers, the W1857 comes with a 2-year warranty which covers parts and assures the unit is free from factory defects. (Consumables are not covered by the warranty.)
