Package deal comprises the Axminster Trade Series CT330 330mm Thicknesser and the Axminster Trade Series Floor Stand for CT330 Thicknesser.
Axminster Trade Series CT330 330mm Thicknesser
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 an 1,800W 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.
