The Scorpion CWI-J325HC is exactly the same machine as the CWI-J325 except we have added the superior cutting performance of the Stinger 5 row carbide helical cutter head. The Stinger head has 60 four sided convex edge carbide knives set on a shear angle. The 5 rows of knives provide more knife cuts per inch, better overlap of the knives for less knife marks in the wood and virtually zero tear out even on the most difficult to joint woods.
The Scorpion CWI-J325HC is an extremely heavy built 12” wide long bed jointer for demanding educational or industrial customers looking for big performance and exceptional quality. The J325 comes with a huge heavy duty enclosed welded steel stand with built-in wheels for excellent mobility around the work shop if needed. The massive 88” x 12” machined cast iron bed 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. There is also a set stop at 1/8” depth of cut but simply pull the stop pin to adjust the table height for up to 3/4” of cut. The outfeed table height is also adjustable for ensuring correct knife height to the table surface.
The robust cast iron machined fence is almost 5.5” tall and an amazing 60” long for excellent work piece support as it travels the length of the jointer bed. The fence has set stops at 135 degrees, 90 degrees and 45 degrees and as well can be set anywhere in between for angle work. It 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 J325HC has a very powerful 5 HP (23 amp on 220 volt) motor and a magnetic safety switch with overload and under voltage protection. 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 3 7/8” diameter with 60- 15mm x 15mm x 2.5mm carbide knives running at 5500 rpm. The heavy gauge welded steel stand provides excellent support and features a dust chute with 6” dust port for hook up to dust collection. Also included are two work piece safety push pads which can easily be stored on the outside of the stand in their holding clips.
The Scorpion CWI-J325HC is also available with the standard 4 HSS knife head.
