CAST IRON STAND FOR EXTRA WEIGHT AND RIGIDITY HAS WHEELS FOR EASE OF MOVEMENT VIBRATION ABSOLUTELY MINIMAL QUICK RELEASE RIVING KNIFE HEAVY DUTY FENCE SHAFT LOCK FOR EASY BLADE CHANGE
A good value-for-money disc sander which will be a great asset in any hobbyist's workshop. The item is merely pressed against the revolving disc and a perfectly flat end can be quickly created in this manner. The 300mm disc is driven by a quiet 750W induction motor and any grit sandpaper can be fitted to it by means of spray-on self adhesive glue. Tip!Self adhesive discs can easily be removed complete with their glue by gently warming with a hot air gun before removing. There is also a brake in the form of a lever that you press to bring the disc to a quick stop. The cast iron sanding table is provided with a slot for the adjustable mitre fence, used for end grain sanding. The table tilts from -15⁰ to +45° and is firmly locked in position with heavy duty handles at both ends. The righ half of the disc is covered to prevent accidents. Dust can be extracted from the bottom of the disc via a shroud which ends in a 63mm diameter outlet. A 450mm length of flexible hose is provided with the machine; this has a 60mm diameter sleeve at the end which will connect directly to an extractor. Designed to be placed on a standard height table or workbench.
This combination Surfacer/Thicknesser (also called jointer/planer) is a light industrial rated machine with accurately ground, cast iron planing and thicknessing tables, together with a cast iron main frame.
The mass of the machine dampens much of the vibration and this, together with a 3 knife cutter block spinning at 4,000rpm, results in a very clean finish on the workpiece.The infeed and outfeed rollers can be deactivated when surfacing-resulting in less wear and more power to the cutterhead. The aluminium tilting fence offer exceptional accuracy and stability when planing the edge of timber and can be set to any angle from 45⁰- 90⁰.
The built-in dust extraction hood is positioned underneath the top table when surfacing and is swung up when thicknessing. Both of the tables must be tilted out of the way when thicknessing. The 3 knives in the cutter block can be is set using the excellent gauge supplied, or it can be done with any straight piece of wood using the traditional drag method with the back table as reference. Both tables are independently adjustable and electrical safety switches prevent accidental starting when the cutter head is exposed.
The ticknessing table has a locking lever that will keep it secure on any height when thicknessing. The machine is also fitted with anti-kickback fingers when in hicknessing mode. Tip: Apply wax to the tables on a regular basis. This is especially important when thicknessing timber. It allows the wood to glide through the planer without sticking to the bottom surface. Any good quality furniture wax will do.
