  • Byrd shellix for Craftex CX08 jointer

    has anyone replaced their knives with a spiral cutter head?
    The busybee website says that the helical head for the CX08 also fits Grizzly GO490...which logically means that the Byrd head for GO490 will fit the CX08.
    Thnx for any input

    I have the Craftex CT-058 (older model) jointer and I was talking with Byrd today! I have a detailed diagram of my existing cutter head and was planning on them making me a custom one.
    They promised to call me back with a quote.
    Cheers

        I personally do understand the WANT, but I don't understand the NEED.

          I changed the heads on both my DJ-20 jointer and DW735 planer. No regrets.

          If you have a hard time getting things perfectly level, maybe you need a First Guess Gravity Gauge.

            I changed my King FX80 and never regretted it. I've only turned a couple of inserts soo far. No sharpening or changing knives in 10 yrs. Perfect !! LOL. I run all kinds of different materials through it.

              Hey OldandSlow,
              We now have the upgraded retro fits for our existing jointers and planers.
              These are made in our same factory that we produce the machines in, so the fit is 100% true.
              Same high quality heads with German made carbide inserts.

              For the CX08 model, take a look here - https://www.busybeetools.com/product...-jointers.html
              Here are the rest of the models - https://bit.ly/33Sxjdc

              These do fit a range of other competitors machines such as Grizzly, King etc...

              B.Regards

                Hey Hanif. Do you know if it fits CT-058?
                Can I get a dimensioned drawing to compare to my existing cutter head?
                Cheers
