Description

In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is a nicely designed planer thicknesser, especially suited to the trade workshop or discerning home user. Constructed from cast iron and heavy gauge welded steel, it is robust and will withstand heavy usage on a daily basis. The cast iron surfacing tables have heavy ribbing underneath to maintain flatness and, unusually, both tables are completely adjustable to the blades to avoid sniping. The tables hinge independently and have up-stop latches to hold them securely when thicknessing. The thicknessing table is easy to adjust with a smooth mechanism and it has a position lock which prevents any movement. The 3-knife cutter block has quick change HSS knives as standard; these are self-setting, razor sharp and will give a superb finish. There is a power feed engagement lever for use when thicknessing; the 5m/min feed speed ensures a smooth, even finish. When surface planing, the long rigid alloy fence supports your work securely, the fence being easily adjustable with stops for 90° and 45°. Brackets are mounted on the rear of the machine to store the fence when not in use. Chip extraction is via a hinging flip-over hood which is electrically interlocked for safety.

Also available is a version fitted with a spiral blade cutter block. This uses 14mm x 2.5mm 4-sided TCT spur type cutters, 44 in all arranged over four rows. These cutters are unique in that the edges are machined to a radius of 102mm; this coupled with how they are set on the block means that a shear type cut is achieved. There are several advantages of this type of cutter block. Durability: each edge will last around 10-20 times longer than a HSS knife and you have four edges per cutter. Noise: spiral cutter blocks are notably quieter in use, up to 50% with some timbers. Power: because of their shear type cutter action, the power saving can be as much as 30%, meaning much less strain on the machine and lower running costs. Your extraction will be more efficient because of the even shape of the chips, packing more into the waste sack.

If your work involves machining difficult, abrasive timbers, or large batch production with sanding as a finishing procedure, then this system is unbeatable. And the finish is silky smooth, without the traditional fine lines across the board.N.B. 16A supply required, type C breaker recommended.

Good machine

Received this machine two weeks ago. It's very quiet in operation with the spiral cutter head and it is effortless to plane oak and chestnut boards. An excellent machine. Unfortunately it was delivered damaged in it's crate and requires some parts to be replaced. Customer services tells me they will take up to 20 (twenty), yes twenty weeks. An important factor when the machine is earning it's keep in a workshop that needs to keep running.

A cracking bit of kit

The AT107PT with the spiral blade system is a dream to use. It has one fault the Axminster Digital read out gauge doesn't fit this machine as the thicknesser adjust shaft is 10mm to short. This is really short sighted as people do not want to get on their hands and knees to read the pointer position against a ruler. Maybe their workshop may one day manufacture a small extension to accomodate the gauge, ok add it to the cost of the gauge. This knocked the 2 stars off the 5 for features.

To good to be true

Having used the TCT cutter head a few hours now the performance is incredible over bladed knife versions. I have thing I am not chuffed with, is Axminster haven't got the thicknesser digital read out gauge for it. The read out bar is good but one has to get on their knees to get a accurate readout. That is why I knocked off one star on the features.
I understand there may be one in the pipeline, roll on. Like the previous review you won't regret the purchase.

Worth waiting for.

On arrival it was easy to unload and preliminary set up. It was used to plane and square up some rough sawn pine at first and the finish was not what i expected. A little rough. However, since then i have planed hardwood and the finish is second to none. Still having some difficulty setting the in and out feed tables level because depending on how much pressure you apply to securing the in-feed table depends on whether it sits level with the out feed table. So it is inconsistent in the annoying little dip at the end of a planing run. I guess thats the compromise you get with a planer / thicknesses combination. After a short use the cutters do feel dull but they continue to do the job well and provide a good finish. I took a long while deciding whether to go for the rotary cutter or the standard knives. I am still not convinced if the extra cost is worth it? time will tell. I have found the insertion and removal of the fence cumbersome. The design does not give sufficient room to slide the fence out of its mounting without a collision with the cutter arm guard. However, If you are looking for a machine thats quiet and saves space and does what is says on the box - go for it.

If you can afford it you won't regret it

I upgraded from the axminster 106 planer/thicknesser. The 107 is much better even though the 106 wasn’t bad at all.
Starting with switching on, it’s a lot quieter and smoother. It is a planer and so what matters is that the wood comes out with a finer finish. The adjustments are smoother and lighter, particularly the elevation of the thicknesser bed. The overall finish of the machine is obviously of better quality and there is now a much larger off button, which is easier to hit. The infeed and outfeed tables have been designed so that it doesn’t matter in which order you lift them or put them back. I got it wrong every other time with the 106. The fence adjusts more accurately and it’s lighter to lug around. There is a rest for the fence on the side of the machine but fitting the rest means he machine is fatter than the 106, which might matter is your workshop is short on storage space.
I have the tct spiral cutter version, which means adjusting the knives never needs to be done again. This was a pain with the 106 because the bolts that held the knives were poorly designed and were prone to shearing their heads. Even the hss version of the 107 is better, with a well designed mechanism to hold the knives. It took hours to get all 3 blades positioned with the 106 even using a blade setting jig (might have been my lack of skill possibly, possibly not), but now never another minute wasted on this.
Anything wrong?
The outfeed table wasn’t properly adjusted on arrival and the manual, otherwise very good, doesn’t give any instructions on setting up the machine. However a quick call to Rob at the Nuneaton store fixed the problem.
The digital counter accessory for the 106 doesn’t fit the 107, but no doubt there will be one available in due course.
The arm holding the guard has been redesigned (for safety reasons I’m sure) so it’s no longer possible to move the arm out of the way to allow it to rest on the fence when the fence is moved across the bed to make the machine as slim as possible for storage. The guard can be removed from the arm of course which gets around this problem, but then the metal plate that stops the bolt penetrating the guard falls out. These are niggles, the important thing is that this is a really good machine, better thought out and a big improvement over the 106, especially in the spiral version. Very happy. A pleasure to use.
