    More Power

    Both motors are rated at a massive 5 horsepower, delivering more than enough power to muscle through demanding dimensioning jobs, even in challenging Aussie hardwoods. The motor, which runs a triple-belt pulley system to the cutterhead, is matched with a two-speed gear box to adjust your feed rate – slow feed rate for a better finished surface, and fast feed rate for rapid dimensioning.

    More Accuracy

    The hefty cast body eliminates vibration and cutterhead chatter, while the precision leadscrew head adjustment allows you to dial in your exact setting with confidence. Once the head position is set, the bed locks keep it tightly in place, increasing your accuracy and reducing snipe.  

    More Ways to Measure

    The Sherwood 20in Industrial Thicknesser is fitted with four massive support posts with chain-driven precise height adjustment. The steel rule read out on the left-hand side of the bed allows for quick for manual height adjustments.

    For exacting precise measurements, the Sherwood 20in Industrial Thicknesser comes fitted with an iGaging Digital Read Out (DRO). The easy-to-read display shows metric in 0.05mm increments, as well as decimalised and fractional imperial in 1/64in increments. The hardened stainless-steel body is IP-54 water/dust resistant rated for long life. Zero out your measurements as needed, and have confidence that you’ll never be just ‘close enough’ again.

    More Mobility

    The Sherwood 20in Industrial Thicknesser is mounted on a cabinet equipped with four tough and smooth-rolling castors, allowing you to easily position the machine when needed. In one motion the foot locking knob, locks the castors into place, giving you a stable bed to plane. The inbuilt extendable lifting handles, allow for easy movement with a forklift or joist to manoeuvring into exact position in your workshop.

    Two feed-speed gearbox

    Precision Cutterhead

    The straight blade cutterhead is a larger diameter and has four blades installed - providing better balance and 33% more cuts per minute compared with the 16in unit. It is supported by large Japanese SKF bearings, for smoother, quieter operation with lower friction - improving service life and performance.

    Digital Readout

    The easy-to-read iGaging DRO display metric in 0.05mm increments, as well as decimalised and fractional imperial in 1/64in increments. The iGaging DRO takes the guess work out of your precise adjustments – never be off with your measurements again!

    Table Height Lock

    Achieve ultimate precision and reduce snipe. The table height locking mechanism secures all four pillars against unwanted movement and vibration during the cut, delivering unparalleled precision and repeatability. 

    Mobility Kit

    A mobile wheel kit is built into base, featuring an easy one-foot engagement to move around as necessary. The locking castors then keep your thicknesser stable and in place for whatever you throw at it.
