Titan TTB579PLN 204mm Planer Thicknesser 230V
Good value product
Only received yesterday but seems good so far. Screwfix next day delivery service is excellent- received before 9am. The only thing we did notice is that the manual seemed a little out of date when assembling- mounting the blade cover the manual suggests it is hinged using a circlip, when in fact it's threaded and is a nut and washer, took a few minutes to work it out! But generally assembly was easy.

Maybe I got a duff one!
It was so cheap I could not resist!
The finish was good and the thicknesser produced parallel faces for the short while that it worked, but unfortunately it only worked for 3 days and about 10 pieces of wood.
Then, while using in planer mode, the drive rollers for the thicknesser (or the drive mechanism) jammed and the drive belt burnt through.
The fence was naff too. Its cheap but the build quality and reliability are awful. I took it back (screwfix were great) and I will probably buy a better brand.

Roller belt snapped after 4 pieces of wood were passed through it. Useless.

Excellent for the price
Arrived Sunday 8.30 and was only ordered 2pm Saturday so thumbs up for that.
A hefty machine looks well made and not as noisy as I thought no more so than my table saw .
However a well made machine that is badly let down by both a cheap cutter guard more floppy than my dogs ears and a guide fence made by a blind man. The guide fence would neither go 90 upright nor parallel to the bed due to the mounting bracket being very badly made and twisted.
After several hours messing around and shimming the brackets with washers I managed to get the fence parallel and just about 90 deg.
