Unlike the majority of manufacturers, the Sedgwick SM255t is designed with a backward tilting spindle. Working from underneath the stock makes for safer working, without restriction on the size of stock being machined, and without obstruction to the pressure guards or power feed. Wood chips are directed into the exhaust outlet in the machine base.
‘True Vertical’ Rise and Fall – The SM255t’s unique ‘true vertical’ rise and fall system allows for vertical adjustment of the spindle independent of the tilting mechanism. The angled tool when adjusted up or down thereby retains its position relative to the fence assembly.
Construction – A cast iron table mounted on a heavy duty steel cabinet provides maximum timber support and a stable and accurate base for anchoring the spindle, motor housing, and rise & fall mechanism. All tables feature an anti-friction planed finish. The bearing housing, rise & fall assembly and motor mountings are also in machined cast iron. The spindle is belt driven by an industrial motor and runs in “sealed for life” bearings, which require only minimal maintenance.
Ease of Operation – The spindle rise and fall and tilt mechanisms are operated by a crank handle at the front of the machine. Both positions are read from a digital indicator. The SM255t features a cast iron ‘horseshoe’ type assembly with independently adjustable precision-ground fence plates and movement indicators. Changeover between the four spindle speeds is effected by quick and easy belt re-positioning. A viewing panel showing pulley speed is incorporated.
Versatility – The machine’s removable spindle allows the operator to select between 30mm and 11/4” dia. spindles, as well as offering the flexibility of optional router or tenoning spindles.
Safety Features – The machine is equipped with a cast aluminium cutter guard and a robust shaw guard set with hexagonal mountings and steel ratchet handles. Twin outlets facilitate dust extraction from both the cutter well and fence locations. Additional safety features include: automatic braking; starter with thermal overload no volt release protection and lock-off emergency stop; lockable isolator; electronically interlocked door; a footstop and a socket for a power feed unit.
