Rated 2 out of 5Â by Burgertron Tables are out!
Had to take this back the day I got it (waste of a day actually!) as the tables were not parallel to each other, meaning it sagged at one end on the in feed table no matter what height it is set at making it useless! There is absolutely no adjustment for this problem so if it's not right out of the factory that's how it stays.
I think it's luck of the draw with this design of machine as I bought the Erbauer as a replacement for an extra Â£50 as it was the only P/T they had in stock. It's near enough the same design, this too has no adjustment for squaring up the tables only the tables on this one were completely parallel to start with.
I think if the tables on the Titan were as they should've been I would've been more than happy with it. Seeing how many people have praised it on here I think I just got a bad one?
**If you do order one, either this or the Erbauer, before you take the time to set it up, take a good long straight edge, place the edge flat on the out feed table spanning across both tables and check that they run parallel to eachother. Even if the in feed table is set lower the gap between the straight edge and the table should be parallel!**

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LisburnDIYer Worked well from day 1
Arrived earlier than advertised. Assembled in about 20 minutes. Worked well from the first use onwards.
Can thickness down to about 5mm :)
Very easy to use. The dust extractor is a little fiddly first time but you get used to positioning this quickly.
I would recommend this item.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by robsue888 Great little machine
My first thicknesser, and half the price of the others. Works great, it takes a couple of minutes to convert from a planer to a thicknesser - but the saving in price more than justifies this minor inconvenience.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Shevek Good machine
Nice reliable machine so far. We're half way through machining up all the rafters and floor boards that came out of our refurb.
A few criticisms:
1. The planer stay position is not adjustable so you end up using one side of the blades if you do a lot of planing rather than thicknessing.
2. When using the thicknesser the thickness setting dial can move and change the thickness when the machine vibrates and we've found that sometimes we need to tie it in position.
3. The chute clogs up with wood filings if you don't actively keep it clear. It really needs a suction device.
4. Screwfix doesn't list any replacements blades.
