New Machines from Craftex

Busy Bee has announced the introduction of three new jointers and two new thickness planers to their Craftex line of machines. All of these machines feature new indexable spiral cutter heads with four rows of German-made carbide tipped inserts. Spiral-type cutter heads produce cleaner, smoother and much quieter cuts versus standard planer knives. The machines also include larger motors than their existing line. The new jointers are available in 6", 8" and 12" models with introductory pricing of $1049, $1425 and $3125, respectively. The jointers also have a parallelogram bed design that ensures table accuracy every time. The new thickness planers are available in 15" and 20" models with introductory prices of $2,025 and $2,925, respectively. The thickness planers both have enclosed cabinets and two speeds to ensure great planing results. These five new tools will be available for purchase by late October, 2009.
