JX|8 ShearTec II Standard Features:
- Parallelogram Table Adjustments – Table depth adjustments travel along an arc to keep the same distance to the cutterhead through its travel

- New Ergonomic Machine Body – The new JX Series machine body has been redesigned with a “toe-kick” to allow the user to position themself closer to the machine tables and to move safer and easier along the length of the machine.
- In-feed Support Roller – Infeed tables are now fitted with pull-out support roller to help support longer materials.
- ShearTec II Cutterhead – The ShearTec II cuttherhead comes as standard equipment on JX|8 ShearTec II Jointer. The ShearTec II is a 6-row carbide insert cutterhead that produces a superior surface finish on all woods including challenging hardwoods. The ShearTec II knives and fasteners have a T-step design to maximize clamping force on the knives preventing knife cracking and chatter.

The 4-sided knives can be rotated for a new cutting edge without need for a knife setting jig.
