Rated 4 out of 5 budget workshop putting together a budget workshop- as much as I would like to spend £1000s I'm still a self builder so can't warrant the expense. as thicknesses go this is a good tool- it doesn't allow me to do part planing- to make stepped profiles for window frames but I can make an extended work bench for it to fit in to do more craftier stuff. otherwise good tool for the money- coped well with very hard oak. comes with spare drive belts that can break if they over heat or just wear out- haven't used it enough to give an idea on reliability. One irritation is the safety/dust collector- the tool won't work unless the catch is inserted- held in place with a small phillips scew. 16 Dec 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by useful piece of kit for a diy piece of kit this is quite good but the extractor chute is a nuisance and you need to have it attached probably works well with an extraction vacuum fitted 27 Apr 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by WOW what a machine i bought this to stick in my car for the odd job i do on the road. i was not expecting a item costing this little to give such good results . dont get me wrong this is a diy machine that im using in the trade but boy can this thing handle anything you throw at it. it has become a bit of a laugh in the workshop as everyone uses it over our expensive fixed record power machine & the finish is just as good. the good news is parts are also available as we needed some spares & they were cheap. we love this machine & yes i would wholeheartedly reccomend it 17 Feb 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A real bargain I purchased the PT85 for my woodworking hobby. I can honestly say I'm thrilled with the machine. The machine arrive two days after ordering and was very simple to setup (you only have to fix the fence and dust chute to the machine). The machine is very well thought out with some nice safety features like the clip shut stop button - something I haven't seen in this price range before. The first task I put it too was planing some 7 foot long planks of American White Ash. In no time at all I had a glassy smooth finish to the wood with no marks or snipeing. It is a noisy machine but I use ear defenders so this isn't a problem. There are two points against this machine though: firstly, you have to remove the fence to use it as a thicknesser and secondly, the supplied manual doesn't give you any explanation of how to mill lumber. Considering the price, this could be the first machine of this type for someone and thus they might be expecting a more in-depth document. These are very minor niggles though compared to the simple fact that this machine is producing results far above what you'd expect from this price bracket. I hearily recommend this machine. 2 Apr 2010
