8-Inch Woodworking Jointer
If our 6" bench top jointer does not quite have the capacity
you are looking for, improving on the great success of our previous 8 inch
jointer model, we'd like to introduce our upgraded 8" WAHUDA spiral
style bench top jointer model 50180CC-WHD.
As with our 6" jointer, our 8" model is still
geared towards the budget-minded novice, but very capable of milling stock in a
small pro shop. It's also manufactured to tight tolerances in a certified ISO 9001
factory and is CSA approved for performance and your safety.
With the cast iron tables, our new 8" jointer only weighs
about 64 lbs, making it still easily maneuvered around your shop or jobsite ... just
like our older models. The cast iron tables also provide better stability
during operation and are less prone to scratching. Table leveling for coplanar,
if ever needed, is still easily achieved via set screws installed in each
table. Even the pull out extensions are easily adjustable for coplanar if
necessary. With the 34" total table length end to end, extendable to 51" with
the table extensions pulled out, machine depth of around 20", and total
height of about 13", it will fit in just about the same footprint as a 6" jointer.
The incorporated spiral style cutterhead, manufactured
with the same heavy duty aluminum extrusion over steel inner shaft, now
provides you the cutting edge sharpness retention from having 16 carbide 4-sided
insert tips installed. While being quieter than the straight knife cutterhead
noise you have had to endure, you also get the smooth finish on your stock you've
been looking for from the spiral design ... even on figured woods. And only having to loosen or remove one
mounting screw on each insert, provides extremely quick tip rotation or
replacement if the insert becomes nicked. This keeps your downtime to a minimum
and your project on time.
Our 8" jointer has some of the same features as our
previous highly rated models. It still has the maximum capacity of 8" width and
1/8" maximum depth of cut and a 2 ½" included dust port with 4" adapter for
better chip evacuation. This model has a 4 3/8" high by 24" long extruded
aluminum fence which can be easily tilted from 90 to 135 degrees with ease. It
has the same 120V 10 amp AC motor which provides ample machining power.
Included are the push blocks, the tools you need to properly set up and adjust
the machine, and a T-Torx wrench to rotate or replace the insert tips.
If you feel our new 8" jointer is a bit of overkill for
your needs, or a little too large of footprint for your available shop space, check
out our 6" bench top jointer model 50160CC-WHD with cast iron tables and new
spiral style cutterhead. If the 8" jointer does not quite have the width capacity you need, check out our 10" bench top jointer model 50110CC-WHD.

If you are having difficulty adjusting the tables for coplanar, please see the Official Wahuda Jointer Set up Youtube video below. Even though it shows our 10" jointer, the entire set up, including table leveling, is exactly the same as the 8" jointer.
