Introducing the W1873 Shop Fox 15" 3 HP Fixed Table Planer

The W1873's unique fixed table height design is perfect for setting up permanent infeed and outfeed roller tables, enhancing efficiency in production environments.

Tailor your work with the 2-speed gearbox, offering options of 16 and 28 FPM for a polished finish or high-production output.

The robust headstock is supported by a sturdy four-column structure, and twin gas struts make handwheel height adjustment effortless.

Equipped with a 15" 3-knife cutterhead, the single-sided HSS knives (high-speed steel) undergo heat treatment for durability and extended sharpness compared to other carbon steels.

Like all Shop Fox planers, the W1873 includes a 2-year warranty, covering parts and ensuring defect-free operation (excluding consumables).

Your machine comes with a comprehensive, easy to follow manual written by the Woodstock HQ documentation department right here in the USA.
