Somebody upgraded to a Shelix. I have the same dust collectors, mine are for a PM 54a and a 15” Grizzly. Good luck. Be sure to post if you sell.

Dominic, how hard were the upgrades to do? Did you do it yourself?

I’ve got a Jet jointer (6” CSDX) and the 735; thinking about upgrading to Shelix; would love to hear how the experience went.

The Rockler Jig Sold.

The upgrades to the Byrd Shelix were EASY!!!!! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Jointer was a piece of cake. Unhook the drive belt and take the unit off of the stand. Lower the in-feed and out-feed tables enough to sneak the cutter head out. Then you have two options: Pop off the old bearings (PB Blaster to loosen them up) or purchase new ones. I purchased new ones because my luck has been limited with bearings. Put the whole unit back together and your in business.

As for the DeWalt Byrd Shelix the Byrd website has great directions and the bearings come with the cutter head. Just buy yourself a nice set of snap ring pliers that both compress and open up the rings. The Lisle company makes a great pair for a fair price.

Both machines run smoothly and the sound…or lack there of is INCREDIBLE! My DeWalt planer is now the quietest tool in the shop. The difference is amazing!

@ Joe = New knives cost $35 a set, How does $80 shipped for all 3 sets sound?

Thanks Dominic, that’s what I was hoping to hear.

Where did you purchase the new bearings from, Jet? How did you install them, did it require a press?

I’ve got the same set from my Dewalt but I’m keeping them just in case. Can’t think of any reason to go back but you never know. Did you have any issues with the cutter-head lock mechanism? On mine the screws were frozen so I drilled them out. I left the cutter lock off and haven’t had any problems.

@ John = Bearings can be purchased from your local JET service center and did not require a press. I just took some hardwood scrap and used a dead blow mallet to drive them on using the cast housings as a full surface area support so that no damage would incur. Just a touch of lubricant and they seated perfectly.

@ Jeff = The lock mechanism no longer functions since the Byrd head comes with a rounded end. I simply left it off. I figure if I kill the machine I will just pull the Byrd head out and put it in a new one, or fix/replace any broken parts. I consider the Byrd head to be a lifetime purchase at this point. I will never consider going back.

@ Joe = If you pay me paypal they take 3%, then shipping always seems to be more than I expect. So I will respectfully say I am not ready to lower the price yet. $80 Shipped for the three sets of knives is a good deal for both of us I think.

@ Joe = Thanks for the interest Joe. I just posted the parts on WoodGears. Maybe one of those guys/gals building their own planer or jointer can use the parts and knives together?
