We sold our 1st example of this machine close on twenty years ago and to the best of our knowledge the machine is still in operation and delivering excellent service for it's owner.
Over the years this tested and proven design has found it's way into into many serious home woodworkers and cabinet makers shops.
The Thicknesser MB508L machine is fitted with a four blade cutter head which significantly improves the smoothness of the cut. The heavy duty feed rollers are chain driven from a robust two speed gearbox, the desired speed as well as neutral are selected by means of a pull out type rod.
A nice feature are the two rollers on the top of the machine, they are quite handy by way of assisting a person tailing out to return a long length of stock back to the operator. The Thicknesser MB508L machine is fitted with anti-kickback fingers to prevent stock kick back towards the operator.
Changing the planer knives is a very simple and easy operation with the blade setting tool supplied with the machine.
