Description

In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

The CT330 is a robust machine with a slightly greater width capacity, a more powerful motor and longer tables than most of the similar models on the market. The planing block, which is powered by a 1,500W brush motor, is equipped with a pair of HSS resharpenable blades giving a fantastic finish, even on difficult figured timbers. The planer block height is adjusted by a very precise control positioned conveniently on top of the machine and there is a scale on the front face for easy reference to the timber thickness. There are two other aids to controlling the timber thickness, one is a gauge on the front of the motor housing which indicates the depth of cut being taken. The other being a depth stop with presets (1/8", 3/8", 1/2", 3/4", 1" & 1 1/4") for finished board thickness. In addition, the planing block unit is equipped with a lock which removes any chance of the height setting altering during the planing operation.

Although the CT330 is fitted with increased length infeed and outfeed tables, it is recommended that a suitable roller stand is used for long planks for both safety and accuracy of the work. Roller stands are detailed within the Machinery section. Dust collection is via a shroud on the top of the block which is fitted with a 100mm diameter outlet for direct connection to a suitable chip collector.

The CT330 is a well built and substantial machine with plenty of power and some useful additional features which should appeal to the more serious user.

Good but is it good enough?

I had been looking for a thicknesser for some time. I had used a cheap Erbauer one (204mm) a few times and really didn’t cut the mustard on hardwoods so looked into something compact but with plenty of power and won’t break in a fort night.
I went for the ct330 because I thought that this was that machine, it was the most expensive portable thicknesser around and the specs were up there to match along with easy blade changing and double sided resharpenable blades.

Well, let’s just say that the specs for the machine on this website and how the blades are changed as demonstrated in the videos aren’t correct anymore. These specs are for the pre 2015 model. The post 2015 model has a smaller motor (1500w) less cuts per minute, single sided resharpenable blades and the quick and easy blade changing process isn’t in this newer machine either.

The rollers are of poor quality too and the rollers on top of the machine vibrate like mad when the machine is in use and I’ve had to tape them down. For the money it would have been good to have sealed bearings on them or something.

The cut thickness gauge doesn’t work on my machine either.

This all being said, the machine does seem to be able to do the business, I’ve gone through several boards of ash and oak it goes through pine like butter and have also planed rosewood and elm with no problem.

I called Axminster about the spec issues and they sent me some replacement blades to make up for it but the website still needs updating and the machine should be looked at and maybe beefed up in a few little areas

Great Machine - Shame about the parts!

I have two of these machines and they are magic! Axminster's spares situation for part on this machine however are totally unacceptable with a minimum wait of 6 weeks for a simple carbon brush for example. In the past I have waited over 3 months for parts and had to buy a new machine to cope with the downtime on the old one and then they didn't all arrive at the same time. I really expect more from Axminster! Axminster, if you are listening, STOCK SPARES FOR YOUR MACHINES AND KEEP THOSE STOCKS UP TO DATE OR IT IS POINTLESS CUSTOMERS BUYING YOUR MACHINES!
