Introducing the SB1091 South Bend 8" Parallelogram Jointer, a testament to meticulous design and advanced features that converge for unparalleled woodworking precision.

Effortlessly achieve perfect alignment with the parallelogram adjustment, ensuring optimal contact between your workpiece and the 4-row helical cutterhead. This innovative design, boasting a 36-indexable carbide inserts system, guarantees a consistently sharp cutting edge that can be rotated up to three times, eliminating the need for frequent sharpening or knife replacements.

The parallelogram table setup, supported by four pivot points, facilitates the smoothest and most precise table alignment possible. Accurate table height adjustments are made simple with the digital readout for infeed table height and handwheel adjustment for both tables.

Safety is paramount, featuring a large emergency stop button on the cabinet stand and a center-mounted cast-iron fence with rack-and-pinion lateral adjustment. The jointer also comes with a convenient 2-year warranty covering parts and ensuring freedom from factory defects.

For maintenance, the H9893 replacement inserts are readily available when the stock inserts lose their edge. The comprehensive manual, crafted by our U.S.-based Technical Documentation Department, accompanies the jointer, offering invaluable insights.

South Bend takes pride in its U.S.-based Customer Service and Technical Support Teams, ensuring prompt assistance. Replacement parts are conveniently accessible online and shipped from our South Bend parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.
