The Scorpion CWI-J400HC is an extremely heavy built 16” wide long bed jointer for demanding educational or industrial customers looking for big performance and exceptional quality. The J400 comes with a huge heavy duty cast iron base and a massive 97.5” x 16” machined cast iron bed which is one of the longest in the industry and is easily adjustable for flatness by the very accurate easy to adjust parallelogram tables. The parallelogram table adjustment keeps the tables at optimum distance and support to the cutter head. When using a jointer, having the longest table length possible is preferred to help when machining longer boards to give more work piece support and less chance of “cupping” or curving the long boards.
Other than the table length one of the most impressive features of the Scorpion jointers is the front facing hand wheels for the adjustment of the table heights on both infeed and outfeed tables. Most jointers use hand wheels or levers located underneath the tables which can be awkward to reach or difficult to adjust. The Scorpion hand wheels are easily reached at the front of the machine and allow for precise adjustments of the bed heights.
The robust cast iron machined fence is supported by a massive cast iron fence mechanism which utilizes a large hand wheel and very smooth rack & pinion movements to easily allow accurate and simple adjustments for width of cut. The J400HC can be purchased with either a very powerful 7.5 HP Three Phase or 5 HP Single phase motor with CSA electrics. There is also a very nice remote start/stop station above the table surface on the infeed side with a power-on light for operator convenience. The Stinger helical cutter head is a dynamically balanced 4.25” diameter with 8 rows of carbide knives running at 5000 rpm.
The Scorpion CWI-J400HC is a very heavy duty industrial machine capable of any task a user will need in their jointer
