New bearings are available for an additional cost. Please click above on "Customize and Order" to see prices for bearings and replacement knives.

IMPORTANT: The outfeed table on the Makita KP-312 is not adjustable in height and neither are the insert knives on the SHELIX head. Therefore, the SHELIX head diameter has to match exactly the cutting diameter of the original head. Unfortunately, Makita has its own intolerances with the assembly of the machine where the space in between center of the cutter head to the surface of the outfeed table differs from one machine to another. Therefore, the cutting diameter (diameter of head INCLUDING blades) needs to be customized for your machine. You will need to measure the cutting diameter of your original head and indicate this along with the order. If you do not have proper measuring tools to measure this with an accuracy of 0.001”, you can send the original head to Byrd Tool in Kentucky to let them measure the diamater for you. There is an upcharge of $60.00 for this service. The production of your customized SHELIX head will take approx. 12 weeks.
We will contact you per email upon order and inform you of the shipping address where to send the original head as well as timing on when to send the head.
