The Proxxon AH 80 Surface Planer is the perfect companion to the DH 40 Thicknesser. Like the DH 40, this machine is also designed for precision stock machining. All load bearing components are made from CNC machined diecast alloy housed inside a nylon reinforced polyamide casing. The infeed/out-feed tables are also cast aluminium, ground to a fine finish. These give a working surface area of 400 x 80mm. The 2 x 82mm double sided HSS blades are fitted to a precision balanced block and rotate at 6,000 rpm to give a mirror like finish. The maximum depth of cut is 0.8mm, a clear calibrated indicator showing the setting from 0-0.8mm. There is an 55mm high alloy fence which almost covers the full length of the tables for maximum material support. This can also be tilted to 45°. The 35mm extractor outlet should be connected to a suitable vacuum extractor. Fully guarded for safety, plus a push stick is supplied.
