Absolute bargain, I bought the same model a couple of years ago at the full price (from Screwfix) and don't regret it for a second. Mine has seen some moderately heavy use, and I'm on the same set of blades that came with it (they're reversable, so in effect come with 2 sets of blades, if you're unaware)
Some key points that might help prospective buyers:-

Not recommended for use on pallet wood, nails aren't the only thing that will nick the blades, any dirt or grit that is embedded in the wood, and there WILL be some, will mess the blades up in no time, remember they've been dragged across floors and walked on, any nick in the blade, no matter how small, will leave a lovely nice long raised 'bead' along the length of any subsequent timber passed through it.

Extremely noisy, ear defenders are an absolute must, this isn't the internet safety police speaking, I'm a retired time served Joiner with forty years experience.
Oh and your neighbours are going to love you!

It also needs an extractor, the volume of shavings that come out of it is phenomenal, in ALL directions! This is the one I have.
toolstation.com/sip…641

Hardwoods such as Poplar/Tulipwood or Beech give an incredibly good finish, a lick of 240 grit paper is all that is required after planing.

Denser hardwoods such as Oak, set the depth of cut to 0.5 mm max, in fact I'd go less. Trust me, try taking too much off and you'll know about it.

Get a nice flat slab of 25 or 30mm MDF, cut to the full width of the bed, and maybe another 6 or so inch longer at either end, screw a lath of timber to stop your new 'bed' from being pulled through with whatever you're planing, and enjoy a far better snipe-free experience.

Really this needs it's own dedicated stand, a couple of hours and a set of lockable castors and it will be a much more enjoyable item to use. Mine has the SIP extractor built in, with an extension fastened to the frame, then just one lead to attach to the mains when needed. Takes up approx. 2 Sq Ft of space.

These machines, or 'lunchbox' thicknessers as they're often referred to, are kind of a half way house, they most certainly aren't a dedicated planer/thicknesser, but a decent one of those you are looking at a LOT more money, probably 6-700 quid (plus extraction) as a starting point for anything half decent, forget Erbauer and Titan for these kind of requirements, simply not up to it. Also they are far far bigger, and a lot less easy to manouvre around.

HTH.

I can’t believe two people want one of these
You'll love the sound these make - not.
Its only a Thicknesser not a planer/thicknesser as description says.

Personally would rather buy this for £10 more: screwfix.com/p/e…6fv

Depends on your needs tho.

Depends on your maths... should be £20
I will second evangelion on this. I have one to and can't be more impressed with it. The dust extraction port is a bit narrow and clogs easily, even attached to a Hoover but you are going to need to sweep up after using this regardless so I would buy at this price.
Surely it's a 'thinnesser'?
