Rated 1 out of 5 by Titan thicknesser - planer A good piece of kit ruined by very poor attention to detail when designed or assembled in manufacturing, it had the ability to do a good job, certainly not suitable for trade use, I would think that it would be okay for small items, certainly forget trying to thin down or plane planks or floorboards. When passing timber through the thicknesser it would only cut if the adjustment was increased by 1/3rd of a turn of the handle which in effect was less than ½ mm per pass, after I had done what was needed, went on to use the planer it was then that I noticed that the tables were not parallel to each other, meaning it tipped at one end on the in feed table no matter what height it is set to making it impossible to get a straight cut, no adjustments to correct this issue. The next thing that I noticed was that the timber that had been through the thicknesser that the timber was tapered not very happy. It was exchanged and the replacement that I got, the table was not parallel either that one has gone back as well; I now think that it is a possible design problem. It’s a pity because if these problems were sorted it would be good value for money. 25 Sep 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Cheap & ? I must say that I am a bit surprised at all the extremely good reviews for this machine. My own experience is somewhat different. In it's favour, it is cheap, but to get any real performance from it then a lot of fettling is required. The thicknesser bed has three holes drilled into it to accommodate the chip extractor, required for safety reasons (another 4 if you count to holes for the support slide at the other end) - these leave a lovely trail on the underside of the work piece after feeding through the machine - certainly with pine, not tested with anything 'harder'. And only taking less then 0.5mm per pass. You then have to hand plane to remove such marks which defeats the object of the equipment in the first place. To overcome this I have made my own bed from Birch Plywood. Shouldn't have to really. Other areas lacking is the infeed table for planing is not ideal and has a small amount of movement that affects accuracy. The planer fence is not good either but again can be improved with some homemade items. The machine also appears to have been upgraded slightly, with a new feature - an 'infeed table locking knob' - this is a waste of time and does not lock the infeed table at all. Hopefully reliability is not an issue as with all the adjustments made I am sure that if it fails within the guarantee period the work that I have done will render this useless. Fingers crossed on this one. If it does fail tho' I'll throw it in the skip and perhaps buy the machine that I should have in the first place at c4x the price. 23 Sep 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great piece if kit Bought this planer to do some woodwork on railway sleepers. Did the job brilliantly and with ease. 4 starts for reliability as it gave in after a year (was left ft standing in a garage to be fair) however brilliant from Screwfix, picked up the faulty and replaced wih a new one all within 24hours. Liked the product so much that i opted for a replacement rather than a refund. Definitely recommend 21 Sep 2016
Rated 4 out of 5 by First Impression I have been doing a fine woodwork course for the last year but wanted to be able to size stock at home in my garage. I've only ever used the large industrial surface planer and thicknesser at my college, Felder I think, so they are my only point of reference. I only bought this bench top planer thicknesser yesterday but I found it easy to set up and straightforward to use and to change between functions. I am pleased with the build quality - for the price - and the finish of the planed stock is good. In both functions I have been getting too much stock removed from the last 50mil of the workpiece and I'm not sure how to correct this (unless it's just a question of removing 50mil of waste after planing/thicknessing. The gauges seems relatively accurate. All in all I am happy with the product so far. It's the cheapest model available and as far as I can tell looks identical to other models 2 or 3 times the price. 17 Sep 2016
