The Proxxon DH 40 is a superb small machine for producing precision stock for fine furniture or musical instruments. Capable of machining even very hard, close grained woods, leaving a fine finish. All load bearing components are all made of die-cast aluminium, with milled seats for bearings and spindles, for vibration-free, smooth thicknessing of hard and soft woods. The result is a high grade, very smooth surface. The triple spindled table is made from die-cast aluminium and milled to close tolerances. The handwheel (zero adjustable) allows adjustments to 0.1mm. Auto feed is fitted as standard, as well as an anti-kickback device. The infeed roller is riffled and spring loaded to assist in feeding uneven materials. The outfeed roller is rubber coated to prevent marking the newly planed wood. The cutter block is fitted with two HSS knives. The on/off switch is dust protected and fitted with a no-volt-release switch. Table length 232mm. Overall machine dimensions 280 x 230 x 235mm. Weight approximately 8kg.

Proxxon DH40As a boxmaker I have found this to be an excellent piece of kit. Cuts of 0.1mm possible from the adjustment wheel and leaves a very smooth surface requiring little finishing. A little pricey but now I wouldn't be without one

Proxxon DH40 ThicknesserWish I had one years ago! For planing wood to fine tolerances and fine finish for harpsichord making work this is the ideal too. Superb finish and accurate adjustment. 0.1mm cuts possible. Superb tool - pricy but worth it.

Proxxon DH40 ThicknesserI wasn't sure about paying the high price but must say this is a fantastic product. Planed every material I've tried, from rosewood to ebony. Solidly built and fairly quiet. Don't push it beyond it's capabilitys and you won't be disapointed.
