Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

Details

JWP-15HH helical head planer quickly and quietly transforms rough lumber into smooth boards. Its heavy-duty cast iron and steel construction keeps the workpiece steady and supported, while the conveniently located two-speed gear box allows for quick and easy feed rate adjustments. This machine means business with a powerful 3 HP induction motor combined with a helical insert cutterhead housing 68 staggered carbide knives. A large cast-iron table with smooth-as-glass surface makes this planer a beautiful addition to the shop. And since planers kick up a lot of dust, we made dust collection easy with an exclusive angled 4 in. dust port to keep your hose out of the way.

CPO lift gate and oil leak issues
Order issues- I ordered on-line through CPO (company Amazon would have sourced it through). On checkout I realized no question regarding need for lift gate delivery. When order number came in a few minutes later I called CPO and was told they would add the lift gate but I should have used call in order. I called shipping company regarding status when tracking showed it stopped. At that time I asked about lift gate delivery and was told it was not included, to contact shipper. I called CPO and was told no record of lift gate request but they would add it for $63. I ended up making a couple more calls to shipper and to Jet to get change for lift gate complete. Talking to Jet, they said lift gate is normally not an extra when included with the order. I do not know if this is a CPO online order only issue or something new but I’ve been ordering similar items for 3 years from Amazon and Rockler and lift gate was always part of the order process.

After delivery I began uncrating and eventually found that it could be rolled off the pallet. There was a lot of oil in the packaging. It looked like the oil was from the gearbox. I called Jet and it was suggested that I wipe the gearbox down and see if it continued to leak. It did leak from the lower cap screw that holds gearbox together. I tried to tighten but it was already tight. I took the bolt out to see if leakage increased. It did not. I bought more oil and put about 1/4 pt (I think it holds about 1/2 pt). Leak continued at less than a teaspoon in 12 hours. I called Jet and rep was ready to send a repairman (120 miles away). I suggested putting an o-ring on the bolt and he agreed it was worth a try. I ended up using 2 o-rings, 1 to seal and one to absorb some of the torque from the capscrew (couldn’t find a metal washer). Leak stopped and I topped off the reservoir. Haven’t detected any more leakage after 3 days.
The machine is quieter than my 13” Delta benchtop. I was happy with the Delta and had run a fair amount of red oak and poplar through it before flipping the blades. I recently started planing mesquite and got a very nice surface, but it didn’t take long and I had to change blades. It seemed like the new blades would last for an hour or two with mesquite and then start streaking. I’ve run a little mesquite and some poplar through the Jet and surface is very smooth. Time will tell, but I expect the TC inserts to greatly out perform the HSS blades.

I considered the Laguna 16” and 20” Jet, PM, and Lagona, but all were 5 HP and I didn’t want to pull larger wires. Jet looks to be PM equivalent with a few less teeth but $300 less. 16” Laguna costs about $100 more than the Jet, but it comes with 6 rows of inserts(Jet and PM have 4) and a digital read out. If it weren’t for the 5HP, I would have gone with the Laguna.
Two things my Delta had were a depth of cut indication on the handle as well as a single handle to lock the cutter head. I am using 1/4, 1/2, and full turns on the Jet for setting my cut depth but I haven’t checked to see what they are in fractions of an inch. Jet has two screw handles to lock the bed. They are on the same side that the dust exits, so it is on the opposite side where I stand. So far I am not locking the table for each cut and will see if that is a problem. Overall it seems to be a very solid machine and I hope the TC inserts have a long life on mesquite.
If not for shipping issues (CPO) and the oil leak I would probably given this planer a 5.
