Most

The modularity which facilitates transportation and passage through 73 cm wide doors.

The layout of the workshop facilitated through better management of space.

The freedom to acquire each module separately according to its needs and budget.

Engines performance.

Power switches on each side of the machine.

Each station controlled by a switch M / A.

Switch from one operation to another without multiple settings and adjustments.

Set irons / iron holders mounted on pre-set screws at the bottom of the shaft of planer blade, which ensures a quick and easy replacement.

Laminating table output only to tilt the chip ejector cover and access the planing function.

Possibility to turn the router guard 180° and increase the inclination of the shaft backwards up to 30°.

Simple settings to perform and good reading on graduated verniers.

Graduations embedded in the router table.

Work tables (planing cutter and saw-router) in alloy aluminum / anodized silicon, therefore stainless.

Folding table extension in a jiffy, to clear the space around the machine when there are no large workpieces.

Mortiser easy and quick to assemble or disassemble.

Increased versatility thanks to many options: various extensions, automatic trainer for series work, motorized mortising bracket to make it independent, etc.

One of most attractive prices of its category.

The lessers

Dimensions of planer dew-boards a little righteous: same for the diameter of the iron shaft.

Maximum thickness of the pass (always in planing) lower by 1 to 2 mm compared to the machines tested in our previous test bench.

Absence of trolley "flush".

The worm system (for raising and lowering the planing table) is now supplanted by the large diameter central shaft, adopted by most manufacturers in this category of machines (and beyond).

There is only one stop button "punch" in front, which is a little thin security side. The other stations are equipped with conventional switches...

If the folded and mechanically welded steel sheet of the frame contributes to its lightness, it can not offer the robustness and stability of the cast iron.

Our opinion

This combined has a certain rusticity that serves it somewhat vis-à-vis the most innovative models of its competitive universe. But developments are underway, which should enable him to regain ground quickly. In any case, it is a question of serious and reliable machine which displays a Very good value for money.
