  • Record planer thicknesser.

    Any Brits outhere own a Record 260 planer thicknesser.
    Although I have had issues with my Record bandsaw, I really like the look of the
    260P/T, but don't know anything for or against it,apart from the salesmans patter.

    Has anyone had any experiece with this machine, or recommend any other good brand.

    I'm not familiar with this planer . One thing I would ask is in regards to snipping . Perhaps you could get a demo and see if the board is snipped @ the beginning and end of the cut . There may be a lock to prevent snipe .

    The other thing I would ask about is blade changing and if the blades are self adjusting .

      Thanks Roger.

      I have gathered quite a bit of info on this machine, The blades are not the disposable ones and are reversable. My main consideration is space it is very limited ,this tool would be ideal in this respect because it comes with a wheel base
      which will be handy to move into a corner when not in use. One thing that is putting me off is the fence, a few people have comlained about not been able to keep it at a 90 degree angle, which seems very odd to me surely not been able to keep things square defeats the object. I don't know about sniping, maybe i will have to try and get a demo as you suggest.

      Many thanks

        I couldn't resist (too long since any new toys) and ordered a blacklight flashlight from Amazon--same price as Harbor Freight. Should be here Tuesday--can't wait to see all the glue spots I've missed.

        If you google "Moradillo" you'll get more information than you'll ever need. It looks like it will work up beautifully.

        The first picture is Wenge, pronounced WHEN-ghay or WHEN-Gii. It is a very hard wood. It’s splintery and very hard to cut. When finished, it is almost black. I use it when I need a black wood for Intarsia. I do not know anything about the other wood.

        I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...
