Why go spiral?

A smoother finish with a longer life, less noise and more efficiency? The question is, why wouldn't you go spiral?

This is a ruggedly made planer thicknesser, especially suited for use in any trade workshop. Constructed from cast iron and heavy gauge welded steel, it is robust and will withstand heavy use on a daily basis. The long cast iron surfacing tables have heavy ribbing underneath to maintain flatness and, unusually, both tables are completely adjustable to the cutter block to avoid sniping. The tables hinge independently and have up-stop latches to hold them securely when thicknessing. The thicknessing table is easy to adjust with a smooth mechanism, and is also supplied with digital height indication for accurate measurement of the cut. A position lock is fitted which prevents any movement. There is a power feed engagement lever for use when thicknessing; the 6m/min feed speed ensures a smooth, even finish. When surface planing, the long rigid alloy fence supports your work securely, the fence being easily adjustable with stops for 90° and 45°. Brackets are mounted on the rear of the machine to store the fence when not in use. Chip extraction is via a hinging flip-over hood which is electrically interlocked for safety.
In line with the intended professional use, the machine comes fitted with a four-row spiral cutter block. The advantage of this type of block is the immense amount of time it can save. The block features fifty-six, 15mm square solid tungsten cutters arranged in a helical pattern. When the cutters eventually dull, it is a simple matter of rotating each one to a fresh edge. Each edge lasts over ten times longer than HSS, and each cutter has four edges; tricky knife changes, sharpening, setting and checking are things of the past. There are several advantages of this type of cutter block :-

Durability: each edge will last around ten times longer than an HSS knife and you have four edges per cutter.

Noise: spiral cutter blocks are notably quieter in use, up to 50% with some timbers. And the finish is silky smooth, without the usual lines across the board.

Power: because of their shear type cutter action, the power saving can be as much as 30%, meaning much less strain on the machine and lower running costs.
Your extraction will also be more efficient because of the even shape of the chips, packing more into the waste sack.
If your work involves machining difficult, abrasive timbers, or large batch production with sanding as a finishing procedure, then this system is unbeatable. N.B. 16A supply required, type C breaker recommended.
