Product details

Product information

A compact and portable 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 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, 63mm & 100mm diameter dust extraction outlets, 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. ** Charnwood PT200 Specification: Surfacing width 204mm (8″), Length of surfacing tables 740mm, Maximum planing depth of cut 2mm, Fence tilt 90 – 45 degrees, Table height 360mm, Thicknessing capacity 5 – 125mm (1/4″ – 5″), Length of thicknessing table 270mm, Feed speed 8m/min, Maximum depth of cut 2mm, Cutterblock speed 9000rpm, Number of knives 2, Motor (carbon brus) 1500w (2hp), 240v, Dimensions (WxDxH) 830mm x 400mm x 460mm, Weight 28kg, Assembly Time Required 5 Minutes, Rating Hobby, Product Guarantee 5 Years.
