Erbauer ERB052BTE 204mm Planer Thicknesser 230V
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.

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

Just what you need
I always promised myself I would get one of these but never had the spare cash to afford it.... until I saw this one in the Screwfix catalogue. It is perfect for the uses I have for it, I had a few rough sawn 4 by 4s left over from when my Landscape Gardener disappeared, and running them through the planer and thicknesser quickly converted them into smooth planed and very usable wood.... Excellent!
