Planer Thicknessers are invaluable to any workshop which operate in smaller areas as they not only save you vital space but also allow you to create boards that are of a consistent thickness throughout their length with ease, efficiency and speed. Using rollers, the wood is drawn through the machine which is then cut to the appropriate thickness across its width with just one single pass. The design of a thicknesser varies according to the type but it mostly consists of three parts:
A cutter head - made of the cutting knives
A set of rollers - which pull the board through the machine
An adjustable table - which helps to control the final thickness of the board
Planer thicknessers are often used in Europe to replace the separate functions of a jointer and thickness planer in one single machine, you might be more familiar with the term over-and-under for this machine. They have powerful motors and the ability of taking on very wide boards and removing a substantial amount of material in a single pass.
