Our customer overseas in the USA has sent us some great pictures of the successful install of his new Wixey Remote Planer Readout (with fractions) to his current Jet Planer Model JJP-12.

Ideal for large planers and sanders, and measures up to 300mm (12"), the Wixey Remote Planer Readout is a kit that can be adapted to a number of woodworking machines, including planers, sanders, and combination machines. It’s an easy to install kit with simple calibration, the package will arrive with all mounting hardware, drill bits, and thread forming screws. For even easier readability, it has a large digital display which reads in inches with fractions or millimetres.

This model is so flexible and versatile, with a little creativity it can be adapted to almost any machine in your workshop.

We had another fantastic and very busy week exhibiting at this year’s Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre as we got a chance to meet some familiar faces, as well as welcoming some new customers to our stand. Its always good for our customers to engage with our Technical Product Specialists on the stand and to help with lots of different enquiries you may have.

We look forward to our next exhibition, keep a close eye on what’s to come.
