Charnwood w583 10" x 7" Planer Thicknesser is a solid and well finished planer thicknesser for the busy workshop.
Precision ground cast iron beds and a long tilting fence which can be positioned at any point across the table make this machine a delight to use. The 3 knife cutterblock is powered by a 2hp induction motor and is capable of a cut up to 5mm deep in a single pass.
To gain better visibility and access for thicknessing, both of the planing beds are hinged and swing out of the way, without using any tools. A dust hood / cutter gaurd is then swung into position and the conversion to Thicknesser is complete.
The feed roller drive, which features a rubber outfeed roller, can be disengaged during planing operations to save motor power and general wear on the machine.
