The Axminster Craft AC318BT benchtop thicknesser is compact and very capable.
Its powerful 1,800W motor quickly removes material up to 2.5mm thick with each pass. The two resharpenable HSS blades in the thicknesser give 18,000 cuts per minute; this coupled with the feed speed of 7m/min results in an excellent ripple free finish. The maximum timber thickness is 153mm with a maximum width of 318mm.
The front and rear fold down table extensions with end rollers provide support for longer boards. A 50mm diameter dust hood allows connection to a vacuum extractor. This thicknessers motor has overload protection with a reset circuit breaker, and the NVR switch prevents accidental startup.
The AC318BT benchtop thicknesser is highly portable and perfect for preparing both hard and soft woods for all kinds of projects in a hobby workshop. Supplied with tools and a blade setting jig.
N.B. All Axminster retail stores offer a planer knife sharpening service.
