The AT150SP surface planer, also known as a jointer, is one of the most unique machines in the whole of the Axminster Trade range. It has been upgraded for 2018 to feature extra long tables and a new fence system.
The rugged construction, independently fully adjustable tables, 3-knife cutter block and powerful motor makes the 150mm surface planer a popular choice for keen hobbyists and trade professionals alike. This surface planer is constructed largely of cast iron and is mounted on a substantial steel stand which also houses the motor and the switchgear. The planer block is equipped with 3 resharpenable high speed steel blades which give a truly excellent finish to the timber. In addition, there is a setting device included which eases the job of blade changing.
The planer block is fully protected across its whole width by a strong aluminium alloy guard. The infeed and outfeed tables are 1,400mm in length and are both independently adjustable for height, which not only makes for quick adjustment of the blade height relative to the table but allows for cutting of stopped chamfers up to 12mm deep. There is a quick stop system on the infeed table to allow repeat depth settings to be made quickly.
The side fence, which is a heavy cast iron unit with a ground surface, is held by a robust cast iron bracket. This is clamped to the table by a substantial hand lever and slides smoothly across the bed guided by a rail. The fence is fully adjustable for angles between 45°, 90° and 135°. Waste extraction is from the rear of the machine via a 100mm (4") flanged spigot fixed to the body and should be connected to a suitable chipping extractor. Four adjustable rubber feet provide stability in use.
If you need to produce laminates or veneers using a bandsaw, the AT150SP surface planer could be the ideal partner machine to provide a perfectly flat reference side for running along the bandsaw fence.
This machine was previously known as the CT1502.
