Solidly built from steel and cast iron by Sedgwick, this planer thicknesser range is built for the heavy wear and tear encountered in professional workshops. The Sedgwick PT255 planer thicknesser is designed and built for precision, long life and minimum maintenance. Its rigid mainframe assembly (cast iron base, side frames, and fixed outfeed table) gives exceptional stability, and accurately houses the feed and cutter block bearings, and the infeed and thicknessing tables. The cast iron tables fitted to the machines are planed for accuracy and continuity. For long term accuracy, and to avoid time consuming mode changes, the surfacing tables remain in place when thicknessing, utilising instead a dual function chip collection hood.
The thicknessing table is again cast iron and is mounted on a large diameter precision ground pillar to ensure precise and parallel positioning, with an off-centre lock for added rigidity. The steel feed rollers (one fluted the other plain) run in self-lubricating bushes and are driven by a heavy duty chain for efficient and constant feeding of demanding production work and difficult stock.The machine features a rigid surfacing fence that can be easily and quickly adjusted for angles and are also supplied with adjustable Shaw guards for rebating. The PT also features a braked motor as standard, with both hand and foot operated emergency stop switches fitted, giving increased operator safety. Available in 230V single phase or 415V three phase. Proudly made in England.
