Product Description

Large capacity, bench top planer thicknesser.

  • 10'' Planing Capacity
  • 10'' x 5'' Thicknessing Capacity
  • Aluminium Tables To Minimise Weight
  • Extruded Guide Fence For Accuracy
  • Tilting Fence With Twin Guides
  • Rubber Coated Feed Rollers
  • 100mm Diameter Chip Extraction Outlet 

The largest in our bench top machines, still light enough to move off the bench when not in use. The capacity is increased to allow 10" x 5" timber to be accurately dimensioned.

The planing beds are precision ground aluminium and the guide fence is a rigid aluminium extrusion which can be tilted and locked at any angle up to 45 degrees when required.

The steel thicknessing bed has an extension arm on the outfeed side and is supported in each corner by chain driven adjusting screws. Once the height is set, rubber coated feed rollers pass the timber through the high speed cutter block leaving a beautiful finish with no roller marks.

The redesigned dust hood now has a quick action clamp to allow faster removal when changing between Planing and thicknessing modes. The hood fits onto the thicknessing bed during planing operations and is then moved over the top when thicknessing. As a safety feature a location sensor detects that the dust hood has been correctly fitted before allowing the motor to run.

Supplied with re-grindable knives, 100mm diameter dust extraction outlet, blade setting tool, 4 adjustable rubber feet, 2.0m power cable and UK 3 pin plug.


PLEASE NOTE: The manual states that there should be 2x push paddles provided. This is an error and only one is supplied with this machine

"Excellent product. Extremely good fence. Excellent price. Superb service. Very slight glitch in that only one of the two push paddles included but online reviews (from several different makes) not great I was not fussed."

"Excellent product. Excellent price. Superb service. Slight downside in that only one rather than two push paddles supplied but as comments regarding these (in several different makes) not great I wasn't that fussed."

"A good machine but I have two niggles: The laborious fitting and re fitting of the dust hood whether planning or thicknessing is a real chore and not straightforward and it’s disappointing that the fence is fixed in one area over the blade. However, it’s a good and very useful machine for the price and an essential piece of kit for a non professional like myself"
