In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is a nicely designed planer thicknesser, especially suited to the trade workshop or discerning home user. Constructed from cast iron and heavy gauge welded steel, it is robust and will withstand heavy usage on a daily basis. The 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 5m/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 4-sided TCT spur type cutters, 44 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 10-20 times longer than a 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 as 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. The spiral blade cutter block versions are also supplied with digital height indication of the thicknessing table.

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 traditional fine lines across the board.N.B. 16A supply required, type C breaker recommended.

Great machine - no regrets

I've had this machine 3 months and I really like it. It feels very solid in use and compared to the machine I had before (a lighter weight Elektra Beckum) makes planing much quicker, more pleasurable and efficient. Its a good size for a medium to small sized workshop and in terms of performance punches well above its weight. The spiral cutter block gives an excellent finish, especially on crossgrain timber and knots etc. The digital readout is great.
As Graham mentioned the fence does catch slightly on the cutter arm guard when converting from planer to thicknesser, but with practice this gets easier, and this is the only problem I've had with the AT107PT. Highly recommended.

Good machine, moderate service

Unlike previous reviewers, the delivery person was less helpful than he could have been; he dumped the crate just inside my garage workshop and was in a great hurry to leave. He did not deliver the manual with instructions to assemble the machine, which I had to read online. I have since been very pleased with the machine's performance and am pleased that I opted for the spiral cutters. As a first time user of a planer/thicknesser I found the process of changing from one function to the other much more complex than it appeared in the Axminster video, especially the need to have extraction from the opposite end of the machine as well as the details mentioned in previous reviews. It was a pleasant surprise to find the digital readout on the thicknesser is now included, although mine reads slightly thin and needs recalibrating and I have not yet worked out how to do this.

Think Geoff has said it all. Bought mine in December and am delighted with it. Customer service from all, but especially the driver who trucked it down my garden path and into my shed, was first class. Finish of cut is good and so quiet. Also told when I purchased it that no digital thickness gauge could be fitted and lo and behold there it was when I opened the box! The gauge setting is exactly what I get within 0.1mm when cutting hard woods. Definitely recommend this paper/thicknesser

First of all I must congratulate the whole of the axminster team from when I first met Mathew Young’s at the Harrogate show to the delivery driver who delivered it Richard in logistics & mat & rob on the phone WELL DONE to you all
Now the machine at 107 pt wow it’s not a Felder or a hammer but it’s good
The spiral cutter is brill gives a smooth finish
Setting it up was a test for me on my own but I got there in the end
Taking the fence of is a real pain but I will live with it
I had a real surprise when I opened all the casing and packing up something that I had phoned technical up and they said it wasn’t available on this model A DIGITAL MEASURE GAUGE I was absolutely extatic THANKYOU axminster
Well that just made the machine for me
If your thinking about the 107 pt with the spiral cutter go for it I can certainly recommend it
The change over is fiddly but I’m certain I will get better in time
Regards Geoff

Good machine

Received this machine two weeks ago. It's very quiet in operation with the spiral cutter head and it is effortless to plane oak and chestnut boards. An excellent machine. Unfortunately it was delivered damaged in it's crate and requires some parts to be replaced. Customer services tells me they will take up to 20 (twenty), yes twenty weeks. An important factor when the machine is earning it's keep in a workshop that needs to keep running.
