Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thicknesser/planer For DIY or small scale professional work this machine is very good value. It produces an accurate, smooth finish. The machine is sturdy and quite heavy because of the build quality, remaining portable but not light enough to move when operated. The dust extraction is pretty good. Changing from one function to the other takes only a little time and effort so if used intelligently is no great hardship - certainly not at this price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best value for money tool EVER i am a casual furniture maker/DIYer and this influenced the amount i was willing to spend, i wasn't expecting outstanding results for my money but boy was i blown away with this. A little setting up is required but nothing too complicated for even the most novice of people and you are ready to go. I salvaged some 70mm x 70 mm posts that were used as slithers for decking pallets and replaned them with the result being excellent with the posts completely square on all sides. I have used much heavier duty machines in the past and have to say this item stands up to them, obvoiusly the amount you plane off isnt as much as a hevier duty machine but it only takes the odd extra pass through to obtain the exact same result

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A very disappointing purchase The major issue with this tool is that the adjustable bed to set the depth of the planer cut doesn't remain parallel with the fixed part of the bed. It actually sloped off quite measurably which resulted in an 'interesting' angle being produced on the test piece of pine I ran though. This was exaggerated with each subsequent pass of course. The planed surface exhibited a gentle scalloping which was far more noticeable than that which I get using my handheld electric planer (DeWalt) The second problem was with the guide fence. Unfortunately the actual fence rail is made from a pressed piece of mild steel which isn't flat. It's slightly curved on the guide face which means anything pressed up against it may wobble if you're not very careful. Setting a true 90 degrees is consequently made impossible as the guide face isn't properly flat and securing it by means of the woefully inadequate little nut and bolt is irrelevant anyway. I found the overall assembly to be a bit fiddly and the instructions for the extraction port to be a bit vague. To be honest I wasn't aware of the fact that the extractor unit has to be refitted each time you go from planing to thicknessing or visa versa, and fitting it for thicknessing I found quite awkward. All in all I had a very disappointing experience with this machine. I'll be returning it tomorrow and be looking for a dedicated thicknesser on it's own. I won't be considering anything by Erbauer though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First planer Exc value for money easy to set up guide fence seems to be slighty out of square may end up making a new one. Looks to b well made other than fence. Looking forward to using it over next few years. Exc delivery by screwfix/parcel force considering time of year.

Adjusting/Correcting The Planer Function

Have noticed when planing that the table is not square/true to the blade - alongside the fence it is deeper than the outside edge. This means finished timber is not square. How do I adjust this to ensure table is square to blade?
Asked by: stripsidebob

Can anyone point me to spare blades

I'm looking to buy this but don't want to get it if the blades are replaceable. I can only find 210mm blades on the Screwfix website and as I understand it this has 204mm blades?
Asked by: Awkwardsquad
Hello Awkwardsquad, The 210mm blades do actually fit, the product code being 44971. Thank you for using Q and A.

How quick does it convert?

What is the process for swapping between planing and thicknessing? I need a machine that doesn't have too much mucking about as I often work on the fly so batching out 2 sides square and then thicknessing to final dimemsions after isn't always possible.
Asked by: Leasky
Hello Leasky, Every installation is different due to the varying circumstances of the site and environment. Therefore we advise that you contact a local tradesperson who will be able to view and assess your particular requirements. They will be able to provide further advice for the installation of the planer thicknesser. Thank you for using Q&A.
