Power and production are what you get with this beauty of a planer from Jet. The 3 horsepower, single-phase, 230-volt motor gives you 5,000 rpm for a total of 20,000 cuts per minute via the four-knife cutterhead, turning raw lumber into smooth, ready-to-work boards in minutes.

Professionals will love this planer’s fantastic capacity, with a full 20 inches of width and 6 inches under the cutterhead and a full-width max depth of cut of 3/32-inch.

The gear box has two feed speeds, easily set by pulling out or pushing in a lever while the planer is running. There are three rugged steel infeed rollers that grab hold of the stock for you, paired with three rubber outfeed rollers that won’t mar your piece. Anti-kickback fingers operate by gravity, keeping stock from being thrown back at you.

A large handwheel makes depth changes an easy task, turning smoothly and moving the table surface is .059" with each complete revolution. Yes, the table surface. Instead of the cutterhead coming down to the work, the work moves up to the stationary cutterhead. It seemed a bit unconventional, but the end result is flawless, so we have no beef with it, except for the fact that it makes difficult the job of building auxiliary feed tables. The depth scale is clear and legible, marked in increments of 1/16-inch. We like the sturdy return rollers mounted on top, giving you a great place to rest the stock and giving your arms and back a break on the trip back to the infeed side.

This is a beautifully made machine, with the fit and finish you’d expect in this price category, form the one-piece welded base to the serrated infeed rollers and the glass-like table surface. To keep the tables pristine, you’ll want to apply talcum power with a blackboard eraser once a week – use plenty of elbow grease. The table will stay slick and protected, and your workpieces won’t pick up any discoloration from the powder.

This is a dream planer for the home woodworker, and it will be the staple in any professional’s workshop. Well done, Jet.--Kris Jensen-Van Heste

Fortunately this beast comes fully assembled except for the infeed and outfeed table and arrived in excellent shape due to the good crating at the factory. It is already setup at the factory and I did not have to make any adjustments. Operation is intuitive and fit and finish on the machine is very nice. The only problem I saw was on my first use. A large chip of wood flew up and hit the outbound chip deflector and broke it because it is made of plastic. Personally I think it should have been made of metal to avoid this problem as I think it will happen again. On the plus side, I called JET and they were very helpful and happy to send the replacement part without any argument. Even with the plastic chip deflector I would highly recommend this machine for several reasons. First, it does a great job as a planer with a full 20" planing width (the blades are a little wider than 20"), second, I find it well assembled and a heavy duty machine, third, obviously great support after the sale, and fourth, I couldn't beat Amazon's price anywhere and you can't get any better deal than free freight especially since we are talking over 700 lbs.

A nice Planer from Jet...Arrives assembled, ready to use within minutes after arrival. Cuts efficiently, I like the top rollers for moving your stock quickly back into feed. We milled Log Slabs one afternoon, taking just a few minutes from "chainsaw cut" down to "ready for final sanding".

I have been very pleased with this planer, although it is not a daily use tool for me, I feel it has performed well.

The only thing that causes any problem is that the feed table raises and lowers with thickness adjustments (Rather than the cutter assembly)...So I cannot easily build an outfeed table, since it too, would have to move with the planer table. Therefore, it is necessary to have two people planing large pieces.

But, a good planer for the price...and free shipping! That makes it tough to beat.

A very good planer. I read all the reviews I could find for the Jet and other planers before deciding to purchase the Jet, and I am very satisfied. I considered giving 5 stars, but I am very reluctant to give 5 stars to anyone. There always is room for improvement.

I agree that if the planer head moved rather than the table it would be easier to support long boards, but after using the planer, I regard this as a minor issue, as board support (at least on 8' boards) is very firm and solid.

The first boards I planed were 3/4" white pine, 12" and 13-1/2" wide, for some cabinet doors. Excellent results. Powerful, firm feed, and superb finish (which I would expect from new blades). Then on the bandsaw I resawed into two boards some 4" and 6" wide birch which I had rough sawn on my sawmill to 1-1/4" (1-1/8" dry). The resaw turned out a little wavy, and I planed these down to 5/16". These are for a new ceiling in our remodeled bathroom, and the 5/16" thickness was fine. Again, results were superb, and I especially noticed no to practically no snipe. I need more experience to discover best how to minimize what snipe there is.

The Jet planer itself is a very substantial machine. I put it on a mobile base, as I need to move it occasionally to make room in my shop. Except for the mobile base, this is a two-person machine to move. I used a jack and supports to lift it onto the mobile base, as I had no access to a second person.

If I had 3-phase available, I would have opted for the 3-phase model of this planer, but the single phase 230V (my shop voltage supply actually is a srong 240V) so far has had plenty of power and I have no complaint.

Looked for a long time at making this purchase and this was the best price that I had found. The planer was shipped within two days and the driver even put it in my shop for me. Set it up and run some stock through the machine and WOW what a nice planer could not be happier.
