    The Wadkin SJ surface planer is the ideal partner to the Wadkin AT thicknesser. With an impressive 2750 mm (106”) overall table length the SJ is available in a choice of working widths; 330mm, 430mm and 530mm.

    A tilt fence between is easily and precisely adjustable between 0 – 45°. Infeed table adjustment is made by means of an easy to use handle with dial indicator.

    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. For ergonomic working a raised control panel can be specified placing operator controls above the rear side of the infeed table.
