The 7 Best Planers With Helical Heads
This wiki has been updated 10 times since it was first published in December of 2018. If you're finishing boards and you want your wood to be as smooth as possible, consider using one of these planers with helical heads. Their carbide inserts make short work of any timber you have to work with, and they stay sharp for longer than their straight counterparts. They are pricier, but the benefits — both in terms of plank quality and blade durability — are well worth it. When users buy our independently chosen editorial choices, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best planers with helical head on Amazon.

Much of our focus was placed on ease of use and cutting quality, obviously, but we also tried to find machines that were quiet and made cleanup easy. The Jet JWP-15HH was the clear winner in that regard, although you may have to occasionally adjust the dust hood a little bit. Still, it should prove to be a worthwhile addition to any hobbyist's garage or shop.
