Wadkin BTS Planer Thicknesser

The Wadkin wedge bed construction eliminates table shake and gives a perfect planed finish. Infinitely variable feed speed enables the correct speed to be selected for optimum finish. Power rise and fall increases production and reduces operator fatigue.

Supplied with a superior cutterblock complete with 4 knifes with patented 'spingball' wedges. Unique fence design allows the lateral adjustment handwheel to move across with the fence - an important safety feature. There is no need to lean across the machine to adjust the fence.

Factory Rebuilt

Factory remanufactured equipment from Wadkin is of the very highest standards. Each machine is stripped down from the cutting edge 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.
