The JWP-12 is compact and very capable its powerful 1,800W motor quickly removes material up to 2.5mm thick with each pass. The two resharpenable HSS blades give 18,000 cuts per minute, this coupled with the feed speed of 7m/min results in an excellent ripple free finish. The maximum timber thickness is 153mm with a maximum width of 318mm. Front and rear fold down table extensions with end rollers provide support for longer boards. A 50mm diameter dust hood allows connection to a vacuum extractor. The machine has overload protection with a reset circuit breaker, preventing accidental start-up. The JWP-12 is perfect for preparing timber for furniture projects in a smaller workshop.

Very good, motor slightly underpoweredIs good value for the price but it struggles a bit with a full width plank, even if it's only a light cut. I would suggest that if you are going to do a lot of work then something a bit more beefy is worth the investment. Extra plank supports are essential.

Well built machine, fully adjustable, excellent resultsI bought this machine after looking very carefully at the opposition because it offered all the features I need at a very good price. I had to adjust the infeed and outfeed tables and rollers slightly and Fraser's comments in his review were very helpful on this subject. I did however also find an online manual for this machine which goes into much more detail on adjustment and setup than the manual supplied. It's worth a look at the following link http://www.manualslib.com/manual/622058/Jet-Equipment-And-Tools-Jwp-12dx.html?page=8#manual. This is for the Australian version of the machine which has a few more features but is much the same. First impressions of the planing results are very good. I have planed some standard mahogany and some very difficult highly figured yew both with excellent results and not a hint of snipe. A quality machine highly recommended

does a good jobI have owned this machine for about 4 years now, I am very pleased with it. The machine is noisy ((it has a carbon brush motor after all) so you expect that)) if properly cared for it continues to produce a positively shiny ripple free finish on English Oak which is a very hard timber, I am so happy with it that I have bought a far cheaper Clarke 10 inch machine (of the same type) for use cleaning up re-cycled timber because I don't want to spoil my Jet machine. PS it does need some form of extractor for the chippings or it gets blocked up - which is reasonable enough

Great machineJust have to add that the angle of the in feed and out feed tables are fully adjustable using the locking bolts under the hinges. Also there is adjustment to level these feed tables to the under cutter table using the three screws each side of the in feed / out feed tables. This is not shown in the manual supplied with the thicknesser. In my experience most machines from any manufacturer need some setting up from the box.

Needs a few tweaks to get it working smoothly!A number of issues arose when I unpacked this machine:
