I have that, a Jet jointer and a Delta planer t hat both have Shelix heads. To be honest i though this was a great thing, but after 8 years or so it hasn’t been all that big a deal. I got several spare cutters with each, and have used only one (the planer, I chipped one during the install) of the 2 boxes I have. So while it seems like a good idea, don’t put your self out too much looking for matched cutters…it just isn’t that big a deal; at least in my experience. I think if you were a business and kept a lot pf spare parts on hand, it would be a good thing…for the hobbyist not so much.
