PLANER / THICKNESSER MP160
Two essential workshop tools in one machine!
Take your bowed or cupped rough sawn timber and get it in perfect shape.
Every workshop needs a planer and a thicknesser in order to produce accurately dimensioned boards. With Wood-Mizer’s MP160 Planer / Thicknesser, you get both in one efficient and compact machine! Take your bowed or cupped rough sawn timber and get it in perfect shape for whatever project you have in mind.
The MP160 efficiently shares one horizontal cutter between two cast iron tables – the upper table for planing and the lower table for thicknessing. No alterations are needed to switch between planing and thicknessing – switch between the two functions easily without stopping the cutter or extractor. You start by using the top table for planing – making two adjoining sides perfectly flat and at a precise right angle to each other. You manually advance the board over the cutter by hand. Then you use the bottom table for thicknessing the last two sides to be parallel to the first two, thicknessing the board to its final dimensions.
A safety guard keeps your hands safe during planing. The board fence tilts up to 45 degrees for planing angled boards. The top and bottom tables can be adjusted as needed, and the infeed and outfeed tables always remain parallel to each other. The outfeed table can be fine-adjusted. Two power rollers pull your board under the cutter. The power feed has an industrial gearbox.
The MP160 is all you need to produce furniture-grade timber.
