2 "lr ew Era" Precision Pan l PLAilER and Thicknesser) Type P'R' The two basic operations in every w-oodwo king shop are s*i"cittg and thicknessing -and,. as dimensional accuracy' manufac-turing cost and quality depend to a large- extent on i-tr. Ãì"".t ií which theie operations are carried out' care must be taken in selecting THE RIGHT MACHINE FoR THE JoB' There are many different makes of thicknessing machines irãm which to "hoose and from outward-appea1ances one ãav loot very much the same as another' The model Ë.ä., -low.u.í, it ttot iust another thicknesser;' it is pnscisron PANEL PLANEn which will:- 1. Produce a superfine finish' 2. Machine panels to an overall thickness tolerance ofless than.005" 3. Plane work down to 1/16" thick' These results can only be achieved on- a machine which has been DESIGNED ron rnr on and this, indeed, is the t."ro" for the amazing success of the model P'R' PRIIICIPAL FEATURES Main frame cast in one piece ensures absolute rigidity and freedom from vibration. Accurately machined table supported on long slir and held in position by four point lock. Single motor drive, the motor being flange mounted on machine frame. 4 knife dynamically balanced cutterblock rotates at S,ZOO..p.å. on 50 cycle supply, providing.the required of cuts pér inch io ensure a high quality ""*U.i finish even at top feed speed. Three feed speeds ranging ftom 25 to 60 feet per minute. Table is adjusted up or down by conveniently placed [Ãã*tt..t tarrying a graduated scale and adjustlble pòi"t.r. This enäblés thé operator to pre-set the table to ãn accuracy of.004" ' Table rollers can be raised or lowered to suit condition of timber being machined. All controls are conveniently grouped at the operator's working position. Modern streamlined appearance makes a. pleasing ãesign of machine in whjêh operators take a iustifiable pride.
