1285 12″ Jointer, 3HP 1PH, with helical head


In stock!

This 12″ jointer offers big capacity and performance in a machine that is loaded with features. Large center-mounted fence assembly adjusts easily via rack and pinion system with ram lock. Preset stops on the fence body allow for fast angle set-up at 45° in and out, and a positive stop for perfect 90° angles. The parallelogram design keeps the table in close proximity to the cutterhead for improved finish and allows for a fast depth of cut adjustment. This design also ensures the tables remain perfectly parallel even after years of tough duty. Choose either the standard straight knife cutterhead or the helical cutterhead.

• Helical cutterhead with 42 two sided carbide inserts for fast knife changes with no adjustments and a quiet clean cut
• Rack and pinion adjustable cast iron fence assembly for smooth fence positioning without play
• Large 12″ x 84″ precision ground cast iron table surface for heavy-duty work
• Parallelogram design for close table-to-cutterhead proximity and fast depth of cut adjustments
• Table “lips” on both sides of cutterhead aid in noise reduction
• Full size rabbeting ledge supports large workpieces for rabbets up to 3/4″ deep
