Have a lot of people taken up a woodworking hobby during the lock-down or what?

I have been looking for a relatively cheap "Planer/Thicknesser" for over a week and these things are normally plentiful from the likes of Screwfix, but found nowt at a reasonable price!

I was originally looking to get one of those Titan TTB579PLN dual purpose machines (Planer/Thicknesser) from Screwfix, but they are OOS and they the responded to a stock query, saying they don't know when they'll be back in stock.

Everywhere else seems to be either sold out of the reasonably priced machines or have jacked up their prices up on what seems to be re-badged versions of the same/similar machines, with more expensive brand names.

Well, although not a dual purpose machine, I found the "Triton TPT125", which just a "thicknesser" and can be bought from "Yandles" for £259.95 (free P&P).

Ordered mine @ 14:05 and got dispatch email less than a hour later and supposed to be delivered tomorrow with DPD, but will see how that pans out.

Current prices elsewhere:
Screwfix: £299.99
FFX: £285.00
B&Q: £1873.80

Just need a cheap, standalone surface planer now!

Good price on this
Similar dilemma here, but no great urgency so was going to wait for Screwfix stock to come back. What I've seen of this model is favourable, and a good price to boot.

Alternatively there's some availability of 'Clarke' models knocking about on shadier websites which include the planer for around the same money.
Good price
Be aware that you need significant dust/chip extraction for a thicknesser. I'd highly recommend a cyclone based separator sitting in front of a good shop vac. You can use a "normal" chip extractor or a bagged shop vac, but you will spend a lot of time and money on changing bags. The Metabo I have will happily fill the 30 litre container I use on my cyclone in a very short amount of time.

For reference I use a Dust commander as my cyclone. They really are worth the money, virtually nothing gets into the shop vac apart from the merest hint of the finest dust.
Nice bit of kit wish i needed one😪

I did look at that one and nearly bought it when it hit around £350 the other day before quickly selling out direct from Amazon and shot up to £400 from AMP sellers.

It does look a more substantial bit of kit than the Triton model, but not sure if it's worth £100 extra.

I'll probably eat my words in a few days though. LOL

I even considered the bigger Metabo HC260C, which costs approx £550, but it's just too big for my needs and these smaller machines are more suitable for occasional use and easier to store.

This one?


Yep. I put mine on a small wheeled cart to make it easier to move around. Specifically to outside if the weather is nice enough. Be aware that these things are loud, probably in the table saw range, you will want ear protection. I'd also say that small is a relative thing, I was surprised by how much room the Metabo takes up, even with the tables folded.
I haven't got a clue what this is , but I feel like I need one
I like to run my chips through this before cooking to satisfy my OCD.

Buy it. It'll run Crysis no problem.
It always frustrated me when I click on a You Tube clip saying "How to make your own"... then they proceed to use thousands of pounds worth of equipment in their massive workshop. Who the hell has thicknessers, table saws, 4 foot long clamps, nail guns, lathes... anyway. Rant over

Second this, they back up quite quick. I have a cheap cyclone adapter bought from wish that has been masticked to a polyurethane barrel bought off eBay for £30. You can attach any vacuum. Saves the vacuum and you can attach to any other tool. The thicknesser is load as heck unless you spend £300 on a multi tooth cutting blade set, also the infeed table is weak so planing snipe is an issue. Some laminated boards for a longer infeed/outfeed will reduce this, there are some videos on YouTube.

I've never checked it with a noise meter, but i'd go with "f*cking loud".

On the backing up aspect; if this happens it will prevent the board from travelling through properly and the rubber rollers will spin on the wood, this not only stinks but isn't great for the rubber.
On snipe: even expensive ones suffer from this, sending a bit of same sized scrap through at the end of the work peice stops the trailing roller from pivoting the wood up into the blade. Usually anyway.

+1 for being a Zammeti fan!
Hot, grabbed mine from Yandles a few weeks ago at this price and very happy with it. Snipe is manageable, tables were aligned out of the box and the finish is excellent.

Echo the chip extraction comments. If your vac or whatever isn't up for the job it'll get clogged up easily and actually better to run without a hose then deal with the mess. I use a Chinese cyclone, 60l barrel and a 1400w TItan workshop vac, no issues.
Time machine alert! Was £200 in september last year.

Beware this is extremely loud (especially if you're using a shop vac in combo!). Ear defenders are a must.
Gotta give it to Yandles & Son!

Placed the order yesterday@ 14:05 and 11:30 it was here!

Been too busy to have a go, but will in the coming days hopefully!
I bought 2/3 of these used a couple of years back - not used much.
Way louder than table saw. I always don ear protect'n with 'em.
Check avail. / cost of new blades before buying.
Used mine on pallet wood - can be hard on blades -

I got caught out with the extraction....i managed to fill the barrel, cyclone and it even filled the shop vac bag and jammed the nozzle. Whoops. Wrecked my blades, replacements were only £15ish from ebay so a lesson learnt!
