Wadkin BAO (24 inch) Thicknesser

Whilst the basic principles of this new thicknesser remain essentially unchanged its efficiency and accuracy are incomparably better than older machines of this type. Faster speeds, maximum rigidity and more operating advantages are characteristics of this new model.

Power rise and fall to the table saves the operator time and labour where frequent changes of thickness are required. Convenient selection of feed speeds, rapid adjustment of table roller permit hard or soft, wet or dry timber to be planed with equal facility. The streamline main frame not only stamps it as a high grade modern machine but provides complete protection to all working mechanism ensuring minimum wear - reduced maintenance and a long and profitable working life.


Variable speed feed 20 - 60 fpm, 3-knife circular cutterblock, power rise and fall movement to the table.  One set of planing knives.  Two motors (5.5 kW (7.5 HP) to the cutterblock)  (3 phase). Included: Sectional feed roller and pressure bar.

Factory Rebuilt

Factory remanufactured equipment from Wadkin is of the very highest standards. Each machine is stripped down to the machine frame and then reassembled with any worn or defective parts replaced, beds reground, all health and safety aspects fully adhered too and repainted inside and out (in any livery you choose). After comprehensive testing the result is virtually indistinguishable from new.
