    The Wadkin CST planer thicknesser range has been developed to provide a heavy duty combination machine with all the attributes found in the stand alone models. The planer consists of long surface tables with tilt fence and foldable cutter guard, while beneath, the thicknesser boasts impressive capacity up to 250 mm deep, motorised two speed table movement, mechanical digital readout and two height adjustable table rollers.

    A choice of three working widths are available; 330mm, 430mm, 530mm.

    Cutter block

    A traditional four knife HSS cutter block is offered as standard complete with knife setting device.

    Four knife TERSA cutter blocks can also be specified for fast knife changing with no set up required.

    For ultimate performance the spiral insert block is designed to give a ‘glass like’ finish with reduced noise and energy consumption. Made up of individual knives, if an edge become blunt of damaged each knife can be rotated 45° at a time rather than replacing the entire set.

    Optional equipment

    For more demanding users motor powers can be increased.
