An incredible jointer with amazing features

This 8" Parallelogram Jointer from South Bend will give your shop the edge you’ve been looking for. You won’t find this combination of unmatched quality and unique features anywhere else.

Its precision-ground cast-iron parallelogram table setup - where each table is mounted on four pivot points - allows for the smoothest, most precise table alignment possible.

The digital readout for infeed table height allows you to set your depth of cut with dead-on accuracy. You will use this convenient feature every time you turn the machine on!

The carbide inserts sit at a slight angle for shearing action on the four-row helical cutterhead. This placement ensures the smoothest and flattest finish possible. An added benefit is the quieter operation compared with typical straight-knife and spiral cutterhead models.

For added safety, this jointer features a large emergency "knee stop" button for cutting power quickly and easily.

The precision-ground cast-iron fence has rack-and-pinion lateral adjustment. It also has fence stops for quick adjustment to 45°, 90° and 135°.

Whether you need to upgrade your current setup, or you're just starting out, this jointer is a fantastic investment that will give you many years of joy.
