A compact and portable planer thicknesser.

  • 8” Planing Capacity
  • 8” 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

Light enough to move off the bench when not in use and yet tough enough to produce 8″ x 5″ timber into flat and dimensioned pieces. 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 cutterblock leaving a beautiful finish with no roller marks.
The dust hood is particularly good, fitting onto the thicknessing bed during planing operations and 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.

It is essential to use dust extraction with a planer thicknesser. The extractor removes all the dust and chips which will otherwise build up, causing a blockage and eventually damage to the machine. Using an extractor also increases the life of the knives.

    I ordered this machine via a sales rep after i sent an email inquiry and he was very helpful indeed. The machine was delivered next day, literally less than 24 hours after ordering which is outstanding. It is a very well built product and easy to assemble following some clear instructions. The fence required a little adjustment to get it square, but that is to be expected. The first use was on a twisted piece of pallet wood and the results are outstanding, perfectly square and the finish requires very little sanding. All in all for the price paid it is fantastic. Plus spares are readily available too if needed. Thank you Charnwood, I look forward to future orders.
