If you regularly work with heavy timbers or extra-thick dimensional lumber, you'll immediately see the usefulness of the Triton TPL180. Rather than attempting to feed a heavy workpiece through a conventional planer, you take a lightweight planer to the workpiece, saving your back and a lot of effort. It's also ideal for planing wide table tops or surfacing preassembled furniture for refinishing. With its patented, 3-blade design and 10-position depth control knob, you'll get precise material removal with minimal setup time. The front handle with soft grip is adjustable for added comfort. Ultra-wide 7'' planing width and the ability to remove up to 5/64'' in a single pass. Includes wrench, dust connector, set guide fence and three 7'' blades. Powerful 1500W motor for heavy duty planing of the toughest wood surfacesPower-on neon light indicates a live power connectionMagnesium construction for superior strength and durability without adding excessive weightNon-slip rubber over-molded grip offers increased support, safety and controlFully cast base ensures flatness and increases accuracy of cutLow center of gravity design for stability and control3-Blade drum design for faster, smoother cuts and a superior finish180mm / 7'' planing width for maximum productivity10-Position depth control dial sets the cut depth from 0-5/64''65Mn Blades are reversible for extended lifeAdjustable bail handle for additional control and safetyDust port for connection to a dust extraction system
The classic American blonde, Hard Maple features creamy white sapwood with a reddish cast, and rugged durability. The wood has an exceptionally fine, even texture, and tight pores that yield an excellent finished surface. These thin boards are machined S4S to 1/8" and 1/4" thicknesses, eliminating wear and tear on your planer. You won't have to worry about chipout, which is difficult to prevent when planing thin stock. Thin boards are ideal for edging, veneering, inlay, marquetry, sides for decorative boxes, bending stock, bent laminations and whatever else your imagination can dream up!Tree: May reach a height of 70 to 120 feet, with a 24 to 36 inch diameter trunk. Sapwood Color: White with a reddish cast.Heartwood Color: Uniformly pale reddish brown or light tan. Grain: Usually fairly straight, but can also be curly or wavy. Sometimes exhibits decorative figuring like bird's eye, maple burl, blister, leaf, and fiddleback.Texture: Very fine and even.Working properties: Due to hardness, tools must be kept very sharp.Carving: Responds well to carving tools.Steam bending properties: Fair.Strength Properties: Very high bending strength. Resistance to compression parallel to the grain is high. Hardness is rated as medium. It is heavy, and resists denting and marring. Hard Maple can be up to 25 percent harder than Soft Maple.
Each of these unique slabs is individually cut to reveal the most interesting grain and to preserve as much of the natural live edge as possible - use them for table tops, clock faces, signs, decorative wall hangings and whatever else your imagination can drum up. Live edge slabs reveal the individual character of the tree from which they were cut, and provide woodworkers with beautiful wide boards that would otherwise be ripped thin if milled for yield. Because of their width, most of these slabs won't fit through a jointer or planer. Instead, they are carefully flattened on a custom-built, manually-operated mill. The slabs are then sanded to 150-grit and given a light of coat of clear shellac for protection. All of these slabs are sourced from small family-owned mills that practice responsible land management. For dimensions refer to the grid in the photo: each red square represents 12''; each black square represents 4'' When necessary, checking and defects are carefully patched at the mill Sanded to 150-grit and coated with shellac for protection
