Four sided Planer/Moulder

This takes large sections of rough timber and either planes or produces profiles with its four cutting heads so all four sides can be worked in one pass.

Newer models have interlocked enclosures and remote access for tool adjustment, with the interlock cutting power, stopping the feed and applying braking. Older models should be provided with a noise enclosure which can reduce noise levels to below 90dB. Adjustable guards around the cutters will still be required.
