Precision-engineered for the demanding standards of your workshop, the SB1108 South Bend 15" Planer stands out as a paragon of precision and reliability.

Boasting a helical cutterhead, this planer achieves nearly mirror-smooth finishes with ease. The four rows of 52 indexable carbide inserts are strategically angled, producing a shearing action that results in smoother finishes and minimized tearout, particularly in highly figured woods. This innovative design also contributes to lower noise levels compared to 15" straight-knife or alternative spiral cutterheads available in the market.

The SB1108 doesn't compromise on high-end features, featuring a digital table height scale for ultra-precise and consistent thickness adjustments, precision-ground cast-iron tables, and a triple belt drive. This planer is a true embodiment of the South Bend name, delivering exceptional performance and living up to the brand's legacy.

To further assist users, the SB1108 manual, crafted by the U.S.-based Technical Documentation Department, is included—packed with valuable information for seamless operation and optimal results in your woodworking endeavors.
