Jet® 20'' 3HP Planer

Item #
100% of 100

The JET JWP-208-1 planer quickly and quietly transforms rough lumber into smooth boards, with a full 20" planing width. Its heavy-duty cast iron and steel construction keeps the workpiece steady and supported, while the conveniently located two-speed gear box allows for quick and easy feed rate adjustments. This machine means business with a powerful 3 HP induction motor. You'll appreciate the sets of three steel infeed and outfeed rollers to help prevent annoying snipe. A large cast-iron table with smooth-as-glass surface makes this planer a beautiful addition to the shop. And since planers kick up a lot of dust, we made dust collection easy with an exclusive angled 4" dust port to keep your hose out of the way.

  • Heavy-duty cast iron and steel construction for added strength and durability
  • Two-speed gear box with automatic chain tensioner lets you adjust the feed rate to meet your needs
  • Large, cast iron, precision ground table for precise workpiece support

I have been using this planer...
I have been using this planer for over two years now and it is phenomenal. Never had a single issue with it and have planed literally thousands of board feet, including very hard woods like tiger wood, ipé etc...I did upgrade the cutter head to a helix head and it has improved the planer further still. But this was because I didn't want to have to sharpen and adjust the standard four blade head. Just ensure it is oiler regularly and you keep the bed clean and you will be delighted with this tool. Highly recommended!
