Episode 07 Triton 13in Planer / Thicknesser
The Triton 13in Planer/Thicknesser is an interesting addition to the range of Triton power tools.
It is a 2.5HP, 8000 RPM (16000 cuts/min) 330mm x 150mm (max size of stock) thicknesser. It has some quite unusual features that are worth noting. There is a cutterhead lock which provides extra stability for the cutter head by locking onto the 4 uprights, active dust (chip!) extraction, and a planing height gauge which gives an indication of how much material will be removed before passing the stock into the thicknesser.
This video isn’t intended to be an instructional one on the specifics of thicknessing stock (that will be done down-track), but hopefully it will give you a fair idea about what the Triton thicknesser is all about.
