Dominion Surfacing and Thicknessing Planer
This machine is in immaculate condition having been meticulously restored. It is supplied complete with a pre-wired and pre-programmed VFD, ready for use on a 240 volt single-phase supply.
Or, alternatively the machine can be connected to a standard 3-phase supply.
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.
