Yes and I needed it, LOL. Anyway I bought an older Jet jointer, it’s green, and the blades had a chip in them. Luckily it was very close to the fence, but I have been seriously considering buying a Helical head for it. So after some research I ordered a Byrd helical head. It took about a month to get but today UPS delivered a thing of beauty. It took maybe g20 minutes to install it, due to the fact that the bolts holding down the pillow blocks were in a how should i put this? A rather difficult place to get to with a standard thickness open end wrench. To make a long story short, I got the new head installed, and leveled everything up, plugged the old girl in and WOW, does that helical head cut smooth !!!! That $400 was the best money I’ve spent so far on my shop accessories.
If any of you are thinking about changing to a helical head, Byrd is fantastic.
The head was shipped in a wood and heavy cardboard container, the blades are so sharp that I wore gloves while placing it in the jointer. i giver them 5 stars..
