Solid planer tables for absolute precision
The strong ribbed Hammer planer and thicknesser tables are made from solid cast iron and ensure excellent precision in every situation.
The width of the planing table equates to the planing width, which means that workpieces can be planed safely across the full length of the planing table.
Quick and simple: Depth of cut adjustment when planing
The large adjustment handle for the planing depth of cut is integrated perfectly into the machine design. The depth of cut adjustment of up to 4 mm can be carried out quickly, simple and precisely without having to release any locks. That is top class operating comfort.
The planer fence for exact joining and bevelling
The planer fence can be moved and fixed to any position across the width of the table. The planing fence is made of aluminium and can be tilted and fixed at any position between 90°–45°. Fine adjustable end stops ensure an exact 90° and 45° position. The precise workpiece guiding whilst joining and bevelling is helped by the long planing fence.
Dual lifting planer tables - 0°- end position saves valuable working space
A space saving solution with optimum ergonomics: Planer tables tilt away from the user operating area, this ensures that working with your Hammer planer is as user-friendly as possible and also requires less workshop space.
The simultaneous, dual opening and closing of the planing tables saves time and is extremely comfortable. The planing tables lock automatically at the 0° end position.
Maximum thicknessing height for big requirements
The maximum thicknessing height of 225 mm is a guarantee for the perfect processing of large and heavy workpieces. An even more precise, tenth of a millimetre accurate adjustment of the thicknessing height is possible as an option with a handwheel and integrated digital clock.
Perfect extraction technology - a clean solution
The aerodynamically optimised construction of the dust extraction hood with its ample chip space guarantees an ideal chip extraction and clean working surface.
The Horizontal Mortiser
The Horizontal Mortiser is mounted on the jointer-planer side. An optional doweling device can be added to increase the mortiser capability.
As an option: Adapt the table size to the work piece dimension
Processing long and heavy work pieces without assistance - no problem with a Hammer! The Hammer table extension system has proven itself thousandfold, the world over. In just a few steps and without tools the table extensions can be mounted to every Hammer machine. The surface can be extended by 400 or 800 mm on each side of the working table. Which means that it is possible to increase your table length by up to 1600 mm!
Minimal space requirement - mobile in every workshop
Hammer woodworking machines are an absolute spacial wonder. The efficient machine design of a Hammer means that space can be found in even the smallest of workshops. As an option a rolling carriage can be fitted to every Hammer, offering mobility and freeing up additional space.
