Elektra Beckum HC260M Classic German made planer thicknesser. This is the well regarded model that gives excellent planing results with 260mm planing width and thicknessing up to 170mm high stock. Very powerful single phase 2.2kW (11.5 Amp rated) induction motor with no-voltage release safety switch. This machine is in excellent condition as can be seen from the photographs. It really does seem to have been well looked after and used for hobbyist work.
Heavy cast aluminium planer beds and steel frame. Original fence allows bevel planing 45-90 degrees.Blade safety guard adjustable for width and height of timber. The original chip ejection hood and connection piece to fix 100mm diameter extraction pipe included. Fitted with 2no HSS blades which are in good sharp condition as is the cutter block. Also benefits from having the original wheel and lifting handle to allow easy moving around the workshop. Condition is "Used" and I have included a number of photos to show the exceptional condition of belts, pulleys, drive chain etc.
In addition the anti-kickback teeth are all in undamaged condition. Planing beds are all in undamaged condition with very minor surface scuffs only and the machine appears to have had relatively limited use over its life, with none of the usual damage and missing parts often associated with equipment of this age. Full clean & lubrication undertaken. I can assist with loading into vehicle. Machine will fit into any standard hatchback etc.
Answers to queries etc raised. The timber stock feed rate etc are shown on one of the photographs along with other technical data. The planing adjustment is achieved via the black turn wheel at the end/centre of the planing bed and gauged by the incremental guide shown on the side of the bed. It is actually quite an accurate and easy way of changing the depth of cut.
