This is one of the most unique machines in the whole of the Axminster range. Its rugged construction, independently and fully adjustable tables, three-knife cutter block and powerful motor make it a popular choice with keen hobbyists and trade professionals alike. The planer is constructed largely of cast iron and is mounted on a substantial steel stand which also houses the motor and the switchgear. The planer block is equipped with three resharpenable high speed steel blades which give a truly excellent finish to the timber and there is a setting device included which eases the job of blade changing. The planer block is fully protected across its whole width by a strong aluminium alloy guard. The infeed and outfeed tables are independently adjustable for height, which not only makes for quick adjustment of the blade height relative to the table but allows for cutting of stopped chamfers up to 12mm deep. The side fence, which is a heavy cast iron unit with a ground surface, is clamped in two places and is fully adjustable for angles between 45° and 90°. Waste extraction is from the rear of the machine via a 100mm(4") flanged spigot fixed to the body and connected to a chippings extractor. Wheels are fitted to the stand to allow mobility around the workshop.

Excellent machineThis machine is really nice to use and gives an excellent finish. It is an updated version of a machine which has been made since the dawn of time under various names. It is used in a professional workshop and has been used every day for nine months and is doing very well.

Mostly excellentThis was a birthday present from my wife to replace an old 2nd hand bench planer which had died, and as such there is really no comparison to what preceded it. If set up properly, if is an absolute joy to use and has become the most used tool in my shop by miles. It cuts beautifully and makes milling your own stock an absolute doddle.
