Portamate PM-P254 Router Motor

Portamate PM-P254 Router Motor

This router has only had very light use and is in as-new condition.

The Portamate PM-P254 Router has a powerful 3 ¼ HP motor, variable speeds from 10,000 to 22,000 RPM and is perfect for the router table.

The Portamate is an excellent router motor, except for the bearings, which have been replaced with top quality SKF Shielded Deep Groove Ball Bearings. Now it runs extremely smoothly, is quieter and will give many years service.

The tables have been cleaned and de-rusted and although they are nice and flat they are stained pretty bad and not finished as well as I would have liked.

Wadkin 12AGS tables cleaned

Front rail and fence refitted and the machine is pretty well complete, apart from a few small minor details such as the swivel handles to fit, and once I’ve checked fence alignment then it will be ready to use.

I’m not fitting the on/off switch to the machine but instead I’m fixing it on the adjacent wall as it’s much easier to access.

Dominion ES2 Planer/thicknesser

Dominion Surfacing and Thicknessing Planer

This machine is very similar to the Wadkin planer/thicknesser, but has two advantages over it. Firstly, the overall table length is longer at  1220mm.

Secondly the Dominion operates from one electric motor as opposed to two electric motors on the Wadkin, which makes it difficult and very expensive to use in conjunction with a VFD. The Wadkin uses one motor to drive the cutter block and a second motor to control the speed. The Dominion, on the other hand, uses a gearbox to control the speed and so you only need to use one VFD when using it in conjunction with a single-phase supply.

Motor 2.2kw (3hp)

Tables 308mm wide – 1220mm long

Thicknesser feed speeds 5m and 9m per min

Thicknesser capacity 308mm X 180mm

Length of thicknesser bed 610mm plus out feed rollers

Weight approximately 585 kgs

Cyclone Vacmaster Cabinet

This cyclone vacmaster cabinet works brilliantly, and you literally get nothing sucked into the Vacmaster; it all goes into the sealed chamber below the cyclone.

When,  for example,  I’m using my router, I simply plug the dust collection hose from the router into the ‘suction hole’ in the front panel and plug my router into the socket in the front panel. When I switch on the router the Vacmaster starts automatically and continues to run for a few seconds after turning the router off.

I’ve got another vacmaster/cyclone setup, which has been in regular use for a couple of years, and I’ve never needed to empty the Vacmaster. Occasionally I’ve removed the HEP filter and blown it out with my airline, and all there’s ever been is a small amount of fine dust.

The Vacmaster models I use have Dual HEPA Filtration and 1500W twin fan motors and I’ve found them to be super reliable and quieter than most.
