Charnwood PT250 10” x 5” Planer Thicknesser
Charnwood PT250 10″ x 5” Planer Thicknesser is a Large capacity, bench top planer thicknesser.
- 10” Planing Capacity
- 10” x 5” Thicknessing Capacity
- Aluminium Tables To Minimise Weight
- Extruded Guide Fence For Accuracy
- Tilting Fence With Twin Guides
- Rubber Coated Feed Rollers
- 100mm Diameter Chip Extraction Outlet
This is largest capacity machine in the Charnwood bench top machine range. However, it is still light enough to move off the bench when not in use.
The planing beds are precision ground aluminium. The guide fence is a rigid aluminium extrusion. This can also 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. It is also supported in each corner by chain driven adjusting screws. Once the height is set, the rubber coated feed rollers pass the timber through the high speed cutter block. Therefore leaving a beautiful finish with no roller marks.
The redesigned dust hood now also has a quick action clamp. This therefore allows faster removal when changing between Planing and thicknessing modes. The hood fits onto the thicknessing bed during planing operations. Therefore this is then moved over the top when thicknessing. As a safety feature a location sensor detects that the dust hood has been correctly fitted.This therefore needs to be properly located before allowing the motor to run.
PT250 is Supplied with:
- re-grindable knives,
- 100mm diameter dust extraction outlet,
- 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.
