The Planer /Thicknesser
Used for the basic operations. Planing a face on a rough or distorted wood, squaring an edge against that face, and then thicknessing another face and edge parallel to the originals.

The Planer
The first thing you'll notice when approaching a surface planer is that it predominantly consists of a surface table, a rotating cutting cylinder (traditionally with two or three blades) and an adjustable side fence (normally set at 90 degree to the surface table).

The workpiece is slowly pushed along the table towards the cutting cylinder, whilst pressing against the side fence for guidance. The cutting blades will remove the unwanted wood from the workpiece (not normally more than 3mm in one pass). It is important that the wood is fed in slowly, done correctly, and a flat surface is produced.

However if the feed speed is too high, it is possible that an undesired ripping effect is created. It may be necessary to feed the work through more than once depending upon the initial distortion.

Once a flat surface is obtained, it can now be used as a reference face to form the other three surfaces. This flat surface is pressed against the side fence, and the operation repeated to form a second surface (or edge) square to the original.

 

The Thicknesser
The Thicknesser enables the operator to pass wood under the same cutter cylinder used by the planer.The thicknesser table is adjusted to the desired height beneath the cylinder, so that when the previously planed surface of wood is moved along it, the blades cut down to the set calibrated height, producing a constant thickness.

This thicknessing process is usually motor driven, and roller in the machine allow the wood to be self fed along the thicknessing table at the correct speed.
