Good, but only if you're deaf I'd been considering this jointer/planer/thicknesser for a while, and when the price dropped recently it became a no-brainer purchase. I've only used it in jointing mode so far (I have a separate, wider, thickness planer), and it's been pretty good. The cast top surface is decent, and mine is flat and level. Adjustment of the table height, and thicknessing bed, are reasonably smooth, given the price point of the machine. The dust extraction in jointing mode is OK - though few machines do well in this regard. The two downsides I've found are that the fence is useless - it's not even flat across its own height, and there's enough of a twist on it that it means it's essentially impossible to get it square to the table surface - somewhat critical on a jointer. That I suspect can be replaced with a DIY alternative, and given the low cost I can live with it. The second problem is the noise. Forget any router, grinder, or other thicknesser you might have used. This thing is ear-bleedingly loud. Even with ear defenders on it's painful, and I'm concious about annoying the neighbours, even with it in the garage. So, this looks to be a decent machine for the money; if you're happy to replace the fence, and are either deaf and/or have no neighbours. 16 Apr 2015
Excellent product Easy to set up,accuracy is amazing for the price within 0.1 mm across the 8 inch width Bit of a pain to move extractor to change mode from planer to thicknesser but overall very happy and very pleased would definitely recommend can't really comment on reliability as only just purchased 14 Apr 2015
Impressive start Bought this a couple of days ago and haven't had much time to "play with it" but first signs are good. Pros:Sturdy build, ample safety features, easy to set up. Tried using the thicknesser - simple to use and delivered what I expected Cons: Only concern is build up of wood shavings in the outlet pipe, hope this won't adversely affect its operation long term. Connection to an extractor would no doubt fix this but that's another level of cost for a DIY man. 13 Apr 2015
Titan Thicknesser In the past i have managed with hand tools or electric hand planer, this was so cheap it made it worthwhile trying for use with oak planks for making doors. Once set up it worked really well. When doing a number of planks it is worth planing edges first before swapping over to thicknessing as the extraction guard has to be unscrewed and repositioned before changing functions. I was disapointed therefore when after a total of about 3 hours use the feed rollers jammed and the drive belt broke. Contacted Screwfix and they arranged collection next day for replacement. It was lucky that the postman who delivered the original machine had told me to keep the packaging as he had just returned an identical faulty machine for someone in the next village! If the replacement is reliable, then I would recommend this machine to anyone on a budget who can take their time and accept the limitations on speed and depth of cut. It should suit any DIYer. 7 Apr 2015

When you feed the wood threw the thicknesser does it have any mechanism that stops the wood flying back out if it hits a knot or is it like bigger thicknessers that once the wood is loaded it will only come out of the finished side ?
