Hello all, Has anybody got any experience with the AD160 Planer-Thicknesser? How does it compare to others, enough power etc. I was thinking of buying one i saw cheap (don't have any space for it but hopefully i will someday) Thanks in advance.

I have one, bought two years ago from ebay, it serves well, already have proper planner/thicknesser SCM but still use Ad160 as support when piece of wood is to small for big machine. The AD 160 itself is well made ( as other Mafell tools) never had any issue, thanks to high rpm the surface is incredibly smooth no need to be sanded, is very portable easy to storage under bench, changing the blade is also piece of cake as knifes has the centering holes, blades are sharpened on both sides which also is a benefit. in my past had an cheap planner from screwfix but the problem was to find blades replacement and was to week when planed wide boards, blades are available from Miles tools and machinery center (look online). max depth of planning is 2mm for jointer and thicknesser. Generaly Mafell Ad 160 is good for all small scale work as its is made for. if you have any questions please let me know, will try to be helpful. here is my beauty
abdon: I stand corrected , the angle fence is only attaches with F -Tracks , what confused me was , that the Timberwolf site mentioned it will work with the NFU machine, yes it will work but only I guess when you use the Ftrack , with other tracks Like the KSS L.

glynnco: Did you order from GereedschapPro? I see them as in stock but I'm located in the US and am not sure if they ship here. I sent them an email asking about shipping but it was returned undeliverable...

jonathan: I've purchased a lot of stuff from our neighbours @ GereedschapPro.nl As far as I know they are one of the larger Mafell dealers in the EU. I can recommend them, they usually respond quickly.

lasse: Thanks for the tip! I have own a mafell rail which is 160 cm and one that is 80 cm. Will it work just as well or will I need to buy rail that is 110 cm?
