Description

In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is a ruggedly made planer thicknesser, especially suited for use in any trade workshop. Constructed from cast iron and heavy gauge welded steel, it is robust and will withstand heavy use on a daily basis. The long 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 6m/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 four sided TCT spur type cutters, 56 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 ten times longer than an 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 an 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 usual lines across the board. N.B. 16A supply required, type C breaker recommended.

Excellent value for money machine.

I ordered the at129pt-planer- thicknesser with way back in April and eagerly waited for it to arrive (which it did in mud September) I also ordered a new dust collector, some pipe, and a trolley so that I could easily move the machine around my very small workshop.
The delivery driver was most helpful and gave me a few tips on how to unpack and set up the machine on its trolley.
The unpacking took approximately two hours, and following the instructions from the excellent book, I had the machine running accurately within another two hours.
I paid extra for the new little cutter heads and glad I did. The machine is very quiet, and the cut is excellent. The extractor actually makes far more noise than the planer/thicknesser (I may have to box it in somehow).
Swapping over from planing to thicknessing takes a bit of getting used to, but is quite easy. I'm really glad I bought the trolley for the machine and found that the machine is so solid and heavy I don't have to bolt it down when planing (as I did with my old machine). I will add more information in a few weeks time after I do a lot more work on it.
