CWI Helical Portable Planer



The Scorpion CWI-P13HC 13" portable planer comes standard with the Stinger carbide helical cutterhead, making it the only true helical portable planer available in North America. It includes 40 carbide four-sided knives that slice through wood better than a straight knife. Each knife is set on a small angle to enhance the shear cut, which then allows the cutterhead to slice through almost any type of wood with virtually zero tear-out. More knife cuts per inch, decreased sound levels, a Wixey electronic digital height read-out and anti-snipe cutterhead lock make this portable planer a shop all-star.
