Solid performer

On first glance this machine looks very much like the Czech machines that came in a few years ago.

Though very basic in their looks they were also built very robustly — qualities embodied by this Far Eastern planer/ thicknesseser from Charnwood. The metalwork on the planer is ail very chunky and solid, contributing to its considerable 210kg weight.

That mass is especially noticeable when swapping between planing and thicknessing modes as there’s no gas strut to help take the strain j when lifting the beds, and as both beds lift simultaneously, you need to be reasonably strong!

Things are constantly on the up for the would-be table saw purchaser. Go back only a few years and it would be aluminium extruded tables for the entry and mid-level saws, but cast iron is the expected starting point for many of us now when we look for a table saw.

Hitachi C6UY circular saw

Good news! I think the Hitachi chief designer has been put on ‘gardening leave’ as the garish flashes and zigzags of black that seem to dominate anything new it launches have been removed, and this saw now looks more like then Hitachi of old, and if that matches the performance of old, then it’s a good thing in my book!

For a sami-diameter blade, this is a quick and sizable saw both in stature and cutting performance, and weighty enough to feel solid in use.

That’s down to a good build structure such as a hefty alloy base, 1300W motor
