Carbatec 13" Spiral Head Benchtop Thicknesser
Strong and solid alloy & steel construction, it's weight makes this a stable and low vibration machine (some other brands simply add weight, and call it a 'feature'). Its high quality construction means its flat and solid where it counts, and adjustable where it needs to be. The extra large, adjustable infeed and outfeed tables give you a minimal (or no) snipe effect, and the integrated lockable head aides simple, quick and trouble free machining. Comparing our model to others? This unit is physically larger, heavier, more powerful or just better built then most other benchtop units on the market.
Twenty six (26) precision machined 2-sided High Speed Steel (HSS) blades are fitted to the head as standard and will easily cope with most timbers. Upgrading to the solid Carbide blades mean longer life overall, and worth considering when its time to make a full blade change. HSS are generally sharper then the carbide blades, but will wear quicker, so working our the right blade for you, is all going to depend on how much work you will be doing, and what timber you're using.
The TH-BX330P is hands-down, our absolute best seller. It impresses everybody with its well proven performance, and easily converts the most brand loyal power tool buyer. This machine is an excellent addition to your workshop or worksite. If you want a more permanent solution, add our OEM stand. Pre-drilled, with all fixings included, you can easily turn your benchtop, into a free-standing unit.
Dual size dust ports of 100mm or 63mm mean either a dust extractor or Shop Vac type vacuum can be used with this machine. If you are opting for the dust collector we recommend a 2HP machine be paired with this thicknesser. The tool compartment has a spot for all the tools required for this machine, so they will never become lost.
Simple front mounted overall depth scale indicates the height of the head in relation to the table underneath, and it's adjustable. Integrated front and centre mounted cutting depth gauge allows dead simple adjustments. know exactly how much you are cutting, regardless of board thickness or width.
Pre-set final machine stops give this machine yet another edge over our competition! The presets that take you directly to your ultimate desired thickness. These are set at 1/8", 1/4", 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1-1/4", 1-1/2" and 1-3/4" (3.18mm, 6.35mm, 12.7mm, 19.05mm, 25.4mm, 31.75mm, 38.1mm and 44.45mm). Set, and forget!
Maximum cut depth up to 3mm for up to 151 mm wide and 1.0-1.5 mm up to 330 mm wide (depending on timber). Less is more, for a finer finish and better wear and tear on your machine.
Dust extraction is required for this machine to remove the build-up of saw dust around the cutter head. The use of a 'shop-vac' or 2HP dust collector is the most effective method.
