In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

This is a well designed planer thicknesser, especially suited to the trade workshop. 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. 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.

This version is fitted with a spiral blade cutter block. This uses 15mm 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.

Smooth Finished.

This is by far the best planer for conversion of wood where the grain direction is varied. I’ve saved so much time and material on the sanding process (not to mention the lack of dust). The cutter block is well balanced, hence less vibration and noise reduction is a bonus. Some will know that sinking feeling of nicking freshly ground and sharpened blades but not with this block, just grab the supplied tool loosen the damaged blade turn it through 90% and tighten and your ready to go again. Wish it had been around a few decades ago.
