Product information

A thicknesser can soon pay its way in any workshop by giving the owner the option to buy cheaper rough sawn or reclaimed timber and then convert it themselves. The thicknessing height is quickly set using a large adjusting handle and reading from a scale marked in both metric and imperial measurements. The timber is fed through the cutting knives by two rubber coated drive rollers leaving a smooth unmarked finish. A cut of up to 3mm deep can be made, when more than 3mm needs to be removed, simply make multiple passes. When not in use both the infeed and outfeed tables fold up to make a more compact unit for convenient storage, there are also built-in carrying handles. A nice feature, is the addition of 2 chromed rollers on top of the machine which allow the operator to pass longer lengths of timber back to the start position. Supplied with carrying handles, rubber feet, blade setting tool, 50mm diameter extraction outlet, 2.5m 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. Our model DC50 is ideal. ** Charnwood W570 Specification: Maximum Cutting Width 318mm (12″), Maximum Cutting Height 153mm (6″), Motor (Carbon Brush) 1500w (2hp), 240v, Maximum Depth Of Cut 3mm, Feed Rate 8m/min, Number Of Knives 2, No-Load Speed 8000rpm, Cuts Per Minute 16,000, Dimensions (WxDxH) 550mm x 700mm x 470mm, Weight 30kg, Assembly Time Required 5 Minutes, Rating Hobby, Product Guarantee 5 Years.
