Charnwood 8'' x 5'' Bench Top Planer/ Thicknesser

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, cable and plug.
