T-13S - Bench Mount Thicknesser - Helical Head
330 x 152mm (W x H) Material Capacity
Patented Helical Cutter Head
A difference from the traditional design of thicknessers are the new helical cutter heads that's now standard on this T-13S model. The important advantage of a Helical cutter head is its spiral shearing action with the work-piece. This translates into a much smoother cut with less chipping and tear out of the work-piece, as well as significantly much quieter operation compared to the very loud chopping effect produced by a traditional HSS blade cutter-head.
The T-13S is equipped with a helical cutter head that includes 26 HSS inserts which are easily to replace, just simply use the tool that's provided to unscrew individual insert to be replaced as there is no fiddly height setting to be carried out. The cutter height is adjusted by a very precise control lever positioned conveniently on top of the machine and there is a scale on the front face for easy reference to the timber thickness.
There are two other aids to controlling the timber thickness on this model; one is a gauge on the front of cutter casting which indicates the depth of cut being taken. The other being a depth stop dial mounted on the lower side of machine with pre-set heights (1/8", 1/4", 3/8", 1/2) for finished board thickness. The T-13S is a well built and substantial machine with plenty of power and some useful additional features which will appeal to the more serious user.
