The Rutlands® thicknesser allows for ultra smooth, ripple-free planing of hard and soft woods without the need for additional sanding. It is perfect for frame making and uniform board production.  The thicknesser features a triple-roller drive system. The serrated infeed-roller grips the wood and powers it through the cutter block, precisely planing the surface, before the no-mar outfeed roller draws the planed wood out. A series of anti kick back teeth prevent the workpiece from snatching and kicking back. The cutter block houses two high-speed steel blades and is perfectly balanced to minimise vibration.

The 2000w high torque motor rotates the cutter block at 8000rpm, allowing you to plane up to 3mm in one pass. The cutter block is raised and lowered on six columns to ensure precise material thickness across its entirety.  The large foldable extension tables, complete with rollers at each end, are micro adjustable and adequately support the workpiece, helping to reduce snipe. The stainless steel infeed table minimises friction to ensure a smooth and consistent workpiece passage, particular beneficial when planning resinous timbers.

The maximum planning width is 330mm with a workpiece thickness from 6mm to 160mm. The 50mm dust port allows for coupling to industry standard dust extraction hoses and fittings. Whilst it is portable, it is also of solid construction, weighing 27kg, which aids stability, minimises vibration and improves performance. Supplied with a pair of high speed steel planner blades and blade setting jig. ©

Good quality and consistent results

This is my first experience with a thicknesser and seems a decent quality machine for the price (bought while on 24hr special). I feel its a game changer for me to be able to take the rounded edges off treated 2x4s and make them a consistent thickness/width which really. Has taken a bit of getting used feeding it and found that I get snipe when feeding too long a piece but still very happy with the initail results and will continue to improve on them

Great Thicknesser

Got my thicknesser this morning worked straight out the box already planed two oak boards and they are spot on, really happy with the finish. Another great product for a reasonable price for the 24 hour sale, will be using this a lot in my workshop.

good thicknesser

purchased this thicknesser after my Metabo one gave up ,
its more basic then the Metabo but guessed that & perhaps not as robust but does what it says on the tin , planes timber like the other reviews say , im still getting used to feeding timber in as it dosnt grab like my old one but happy with this purchase !!

Does a great job

Have been looking for a thicknesses for a couple of months and had set my sights on another brand when I noticed the Rutland. On paper does what others do but slightly more power and width. The New year sale made it a no brainer so ordered this. Was slightly disappointed when I first unpacked it as there were some dents on the centre tray but Rutland quickly provided a solution so all was good. I am very pleased with the results when using the thicknesser and looking forward to less sanding in the future.
