To say the least this cutterhead installed flawlessly and preformed. Cut way quieter and smoother. Carbide were sharp and marked professionally. The part reached me from China via FedEx in 4 days flat.
Great set of hand tools. My son, 11, uses them for his pens. I also have used them at school and the head teacher now wants to buy them for the classroom.
Cannot be more happy to hear the kids love our tools!
They came fast and were packaged well. Haven't put them in yet but they look like good quality.
I mistakenly had the wrong address. I emailed and got a phone call that night to discuss the address change. Received the order in 5 days!! Very pleased with The service. I haven’t cut anything with the planer blades yet but installed them and they seem to fit perfectly.
I have had my DeWalt thickness planner for several years and really like how well it works. I never liked the noise and time it took plane down hardwoods especially oak and frankly, neither did my neighbors. I purchased a new helical cutter head from findbuytools.com and it has exceeded my expectations. It arrived quickly, was relatively easy to install and the results have been amazing. It’s at least 50% quieter and 4x faster. I love this improvement and wish I had known about it sooner.
Replaced the cutter head in my Dewalt 734 planer with the helical cutter head. It made a 100% improvement in the cut of the planer. I am planing hickory wood for cutting boards and the finish is amazing cut down on sanding greatly. Would highly recommend the helical cutter head!
Received my tools well packed. Removed from packaging and installed the bits to the appropriate tool bar except for the diamond shaped bit. It was nicely packed in a plastic case but there was no screw for attaching the bit. Still need to find appropriate screw to complete the Tool. Everything else is as expected and the tools cut perfectly.
Good product with one small quality escape.
I decided to upgrade the cutterhead for my DW735x after second set of knives started to misbehave. I am only a woodworking hobbyist, worked with a lot of hard woods and want to have the proper tools to finish the projects well. I was debating between Shelix (3 rows, 30 inserts) and this new helical cutterhead (4 rows, 54 inserts). After watching a few reviews by others on Shelix, all stating not much improvements observed on noise reduction and cut quality, I decided on the 4 rows design. My reasoning was that the RPM of the cutterhead will be constant set by the planner. Smaller cuts and higher number of cuts per minute should improve the cut quality and lower the noise, in theory at least.
The customer service kept me informed on the status of my order each step along the way. I received my package in 8 days as promised.
I replaced my cutterhead right away. I consulted a few videos on YouTube before starting. The process is quite labor intensive, and took me about 3 hours to complete. A hobbyist should be great with his hands and up to the challenge, right? :)
I could not be happier with the outcome! I now can plain 6-10 inches wide maple, black walnut, and Euro beech without any problem! The cut quality is superb! The noise is MUCH MUCH lower. The sound now is more like a humming instead of the loud and high pitch noise before.
Overall, I am very happy for the upgrade. This 4 rows 54 inserts model proved my hypothesis, and shown to be a better choice.
The helical head was easy to install with patient following of instructional video found on youtube. The finish of the workpiece was very smooth, even when the planer’s feed was set on roughing pass.
Looked for a cutter with a wide edge to no avail. Happened upon the FINDBUYTOOL website, ordered a cutter and IT’S TERRIFIC!!! Just exactly what I wanted! Good price—GREAT VALUE!!
