More affordable alternative to Shelix, Byrd or even Lux helical heads

​​I was on the market for a helical cutterhead because I was tired of replacing flat blades in my Dewalt DW735 planer. I found various helical cutterheads online but they were really expensive or backordered due to high demand. Findbuytool came up in my search. They listed their cutterheads on sale at $359 versus Lux at $549 and Byrd at $422. I was nervous about ordering from a name that I have never heard of but I risked it and purchased the cutterheads. Surprisingly, the box came to my home in Chicago from California in 3 days.

The installation manual that comes in the box is useless. I had to use a Youtube video on how to install a helical cutterhead for my Dewalt planer. Once installed the helical cutterhead from Findbuytool cuts noticeably smoother and cleaner than the flat blades. The bearings run smooth and the carbide inserts are fantastic albeit tedious to install.

Unlike the Byrd Shelix and LuxCut cutterheads the Findbuytool version works with the push stopper/brake used when replacing blades. More importantly Findbuytool has 56 carbide blades as opposed to Lux and Byrd versions which have only 40 inserts.

I am not disappointed. The Findbuytool is just as good if not better than the other brand names. Shake off the fear that you're going to get ripped off and purchase this one.

Thank you for your review! We always need customers like you!

Only use a limited amount at this point. Works good more quiet than straight cutters. Had to pull small bearing and and install from outside. Pictorial directions dark and hard to see for these older eyes. Installed in about the same time frame as the directions estimate. I would recommend the installer have some mechanical experience to install. I like how it is working. I think snipe is much less than straight cutters but there is a small amount.

Thank you for your comments!

Excellent

This planer head is excellent for the money! Worth every cent! I don’t know for certain how many HSS sets of knives I would have gone through in the last month with all of the red oak that I have went through but it would have been a lot. I finally had to quarter turn these inserts. I love this planet head!

Thank you, Heather. I am more than happy to read this review!

Wood working & cabinets

Really glade l found & bought this helical cutter head for 734 planer .Works so much better than the knives will last by far longer .No regrets would do again .Probably be getting on for the jointer next Great product great price

Thank you for your review and happy new year!

Nice upgrade!

Pretty happy with my new Helical head cutter. I had recently borrowed my friends DW735 with the Shelix cutter and loved it. So I had to get my own. I never even ran something through my new one with the factory blades. The Shelix had a better finish in the slower speed but they are very similar in the faster finish speed. All in all I’m very happy. They sent 14 extra blades. That was great! It came as promised, in about 7 days.

Thank you for your amazing review! Happy new year, Lonnie!

Very nice tools for the price. A bargain for sure.

Thank you for you comments, Patrick

Carbide cutters

Good product good price.

Thank you!

Double bead doing router bit. Both 5/8 and 5/16” were too large.

I wanted a double bead bit that would be no wider than 5/8” total for both beads and the three grooves. I have no use for either of these bits. Can I return these? Paul Durham. The quality looks good.

Hello, Paul. Would a 1/4 router bit fit your work? We could send you one for free.

Cutter head I selected was a 4 row with bearings. Quality is good. Installed easily with help from video . Performance is good and is much quieter as claimed. Thank you for a quality product.

Thank you for your comments, Donald. We will continue supplying quality products.

Carbide cutters

Good product, good price.

And good customer!

great value

great value.. the only problem is they do not label the boxes of inserts. We buy two different sizes and the boxes are identical. the inserts are .5 millimeter different

Thank you for your review, Chris. We are trying to improve this. (Next time we will pack the different inserts separately)

mostly happy

The bit worked great. I was disappointed though when the cutter had a flat shoulder at the top by the bearing. The picture I used to order did not show the flat collar so had to reduce the height of the bit when I used it to edge my board. I thought the angle would continue to the bearing with no shoulder. It was a question I had concerns I had before I bought it and stated in an email I sent to you. The bit is very sharp and happy about that.

Sorry about the problem of collar. Hope the bit would help with your work.

Awesome! Very impressed with this product!

I wish I would have purchased this helical cutter head years ago! The install was very easy… a little time consuming. installing the 56 carbide cutters but….the end results after I planed my first hard maple board it was worth every second! I’m just blown away how much better the planer sounds, cuts and how smooth the wood comes out. If I could I would give 10 stars I would… especially for half the price of the major helical cutter head brands! I have been woodworker for over 30 years and will be buying more products from this company in the future!

Your comments really made my day!

Good

They were just what I need

Thank you for your review, John.

Awesome finish

The cutter took awhile to instal, but was very enjoyable to do. Also alot less $ than the other brand.

That is what we do: make every penny you spent worth it!

great design

I really like the number of cutters on the head along with the tight spiral shape to the head.
thank you
