A hobby rated planer thicknesser with ground cast iron planing and thicknessing tables and a cast iron main frame. Being made of cast iron, this is a very heavy machine and is an excellent choice for the discerning home user. The combination of a 3-knife cutter block and the vibration-reducing mass of the machine results in a very clean finish to the work. The dust extraction hood is positioned underneath the table for surfacing and on top of the table for thicknessing. Both of the tables tilt out of the way for this function. The 3-knife cutter block is set using the excellent gauge supplied, ensuring that each HSS knife is set exactly to the block. We fit premium quality, re-sharpenable HSS knives to ensure a great finish. For optimum setting both tables are fully adjustable and electrically interlocked to avoid accidental starting without the dust extraction hood in place. For all your home project timber sizing tasks, this machine will prove to be a great choice. Supplied with a 13A plug and 1.5m cable set.

As good as it gets for under £1000Got this and the bundled in FM300BC chip extractor when on offer for just under a thousand quid. The machine comes well packaged in a ply wood shipping crate and is securely bolted to the pallet. A thick layer of oil coats everything to prevent rust during transit / storeage and the cast iron beds have additional greased paper stuck to them for protection. I would recommend spending a good half hour or so thoroughly de-greasing the machine with mineral spirits or similar before re-oiling the chain and drive assembly.
