Dressing and thicknessing machine

A planer is an effective tool that you should have if you work a lot with wood. By using this machine you can save time and effort. A jointer-thicknesser makes work easier by removing excess material to create smooth surfaces. More and more people are buying a jointer-thicknesser at home to save money. It is pretty much affordable for every homeowner, regardless of income level. If you are looking for a tool that can remove bumps and other surface irregularities, then this is the tool for you. We have different manufacturers such as Bernardo surface planer or BAMATO surface planer but also from Holzmann.

Wood works, even when it is lying on the shelf waiting to be processed. Fluctuations in humidity and temperature can cause boards, mouldings and beams made of wood to warp. With a jointer or planer, warped boards and mouldings can be brought back into shape without much effort. The combination of a jointer and a thickness planer ensures that boards and mouldings can be quickly and precisely prepared for further processing.

A thickness planer is not only indispensable in professional furniture making today. Also in the hobby workshop, for building shelves, tables or chests of drawers, a thickness planer in combination with a jointer is an indispensable processing machine for various workpieces. At BHM Maschinen, ambitious do-it-yourselfers and professional craftsmen will find the right jointer / thickness planer for their needs.

Frequently asked questions about the planer and thicknessing machine:

What is a jointer and thicknessing machine used for?

A jointer and thicknesser serves two functions in a woodworking shop. A jointer, or by its full name a planer, has roughly the same function as a router. The machine is used to smooth and level the surface of woodwork pieces, that is, to plane them. A surface planer is also used to make right-angled edges on wooden workpieces or to make longitudinal joints. The thickness planer or thicknesser is used to plane flat pieces of wood, such as boards or mouldings, to a specific thickness across their entire length and width.

Where is a jointer and thickness planer used?

A jointer and thickness planer is part of the basic equipment of every woodworking workshop. The machines are used to reshape wooden workpieces that are slightly warped, for example, after a long period of storage for drying. With a jointer / thickness planer, the workpiece can be planed to the same thickness over the entire length and width in just a few passes. A jointer and thickness planer is mainly used for furniture making. More and more do-it-yourselfers are also taking advantage of the possibilities offered by a jointer and thicknessing machine from BHM Maschinen. A high-quality jointer from BHM is not only reserved for professional use.

For whom is the purchase of a jointer and thicknessing machine worthwhile?

The purchase of a thickness planer and jointer is always worthwhile when components for furniture, for example, must have a perfectly even and smooth surface and a precisely defined thickness. This means that a jointer in combination with a thickness planer can be a really worthwhile investment for an ambitious hobby craftsman who makes furniture such as shelves, chests of drawers or cupboards himself. For professional joineries and carpentry shops, a jointer combined with a thickness planer is generally indispensable. A jointer / thickness planer is part of the basic equipment for professional woodworking.

Can a jointer and thicknessing machine be repaired in case of a defect?

Thickness planers and jointers from Bernardo, BAMATO and Holzmann can be repaired without any problems in case of a defect. All three manufacturers have designed their machines so that individual components can be quickly dismantled and replaced. The supply of spare parts for our suppliers' machines is guaranteed for many years to come. The knives are of central importance on a surface planer and a thicknessing machine. All knives of our jointers are made of high quality steel and can be resharpened without any problems. However, knife sharpening should only be carried out by experienced professionals, so that the planing result is perfect and the service life of the knives is optimal again after sharpening.

What safety precautions must be taken when working with a jointer and thicknessing machine?

In principle, the same safety regulations apply to working with a jointer / thicknessing machine as to working with other woodworking machines. Because of the high tool revolutions, hearing protection should be worn when working with a thicknessing machine. Safety goggles should be worn to protect the eyes.

Since wood dust is produced during planing, a respiratory protection mask should be worn, even if the planer is connected to an extraction system. Furthermore, care should be taken to ensure that clothing does not hang loosely down, but hangs close to the body. In general, it is also important to ensure that the work area is clean and tidy.
