I’m on my second machine with helical carbide tipped head, when I upgraded to my present planer it was top of my priority list for what the new machine should have as I was that impressed with them.
I sold my first machine a stand alone thicknesser to a chap with a four sider planing machine, he saw the finish off the helical block & was so impressed he bought the thicknesser for final machine prep of some timber after it had initially gone through his four sider.

That said I’d want to be sure of the quality of the head & finish it will give before I splashed £700, have you seen reviews from anyone who has made the conversion?
