Very good scale Review by Colin Ashburn
Quality
Value
I've had this for a few weeks now, I fitted it to a new 12 inch thicknesser I brought to replace my much older (and smaller) model.
The instructions were very clear on how to fit the scale to my machine - so 5* for that.
I only encountered one problem (page 4 of the instructions, Fig 17) - when the scale is fitted to the machine (I had to fix it permanently with the two machine screws provided, so no readjusting after the fact), and the mounting bracket is fitted in place of the original scale, there is very little 'give' when using the provided bolt to attach the vertical lever that connects to the black box (the digital unit). Using the provided nut and bolt caused the black box to be pulled to the side very slightly which prevents the spring loaded sliding scale from moving freely.
I had to use add a plastic washer to the screw between the vertical lever and the black box (step 3), and then a longer bolt and two washers between the vertical lever and the mounting bracket. It took a bit of 'trial and error' to find the right combination of washers that allowed the black box to sit correctly so the spring loaded sliding scale could move freely.
Other than that, this is a very good unit. The accuracy is very good, I found a difference of 0.2mm when measuring with the scale (as per the instructions) and using a digital caliper, but I think this could be an issue with the position of the mount (and the use of the permanent fixings).
Any wood put through my thicknesser is more accurate than the old way.
I would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone else who is looking for greater accuracy in their work. (Posted on 26/04/2019)
