Planer Thicknessers

Planer thicknessers are an incredibly useful addition to any professional or even novice workshop as they make for a refined final product that is free of inconsistencies throughout their surface. Planer thicknessers ensure a consistent thickness throughout the length of the workpiece whilst operating with ease, efficiency and speed. 

How Does a Thickness Planer Work?

When using a thickness planer, the wood is fed through the machine and carried through by a set of rollers. During the process, cutting knives are used to trim the width and thickness of the workpiece to trim it down to the operator’s liking. The cutting of the width and thickness should be completed with a single use of the machine.

The design of a planer thicknesser varies according to the type but mostly consists of three parts:

Cutter head – made of the cutting knives
Set of rollers – pulls the board through the machine
An adjustable table – helps to control the final thickness of the board

What is a Planer Thicknesser?

Planer thicknessers are often used in Europe to replace the separate functions of a jointer and thickness planer in one single machine. You might be more familiar with the term over-and-under for this machine.
