Product Details
The CWI-P0315HC 15” helical thickness planer is an excellent machine for the advanced hobbyist or early year’s educational woodworking shop.

This machine differs from our CWI-P0416HC thickness planer in that it is a more traditional 4 post Taiwanese design.

The P0315HC comes standard with a single phase power 3 HP 220/1/60 motor and will machine lumber at up to 1/8” at each pass. A magnetic safety switch is included with overload and under voltage protection.
There are a total of 75 of the 15mm x 15mm x 2.5mm square four sided convex edge carbide knives on the Stinger cutter head.

The 5 rows of knives provide more knife cuts per inch, better overlap of the knives for less knife marks in the wood and virtually zero tear out even on the most difficult to thickness woods.
When an edge of a knife gets dull or damaged simply remove the locking screw and rotate the knife to a new edge. We find under normal wear and tear customers will get one to two years of performance from each edge of knife. Our Stinger Carbide helical cutter heads are renowned for ease of maintenance, quality of cut, and sound levels so pleasant you almost forget the machine is running.
The Scorpion P0315HC has two feed speeds of 16’ and 20’ per minute.

There is a solid steel serrated infeed roller to ensure a very good grip to push lumber through the machine as well as a smooth surface polyurethane outfeed roller both mounted in a heavy cast iron frame.

For added safety anti-kickback fingers are present in front of the infeed roller.
The extra large cast iron table measures 15” x 48” of surface area which includes two bolt on cast iron extensions for extremely good work piece support. The table is supported by four solid columns with chain driven jack screws for excellent precision and height adjustment.

On the surface of the table are two adjustable table rollers to help the feeding of rough lumber. The cast iron table can manually be height adjusted with a large hand wheel for quick movement of the table between 1/8” and 6” thickness of the work piece.

A couple of nice features are the built in mobility system for ease of moving the machine around the shop as well as two steel return rollers mounted to the top of the machine to assist in handling long lumber being transferred back and forth while machining multiple passes.
The Scorpion CWI-P0315HC 15” thickness planer is a well-built machine at an affordable value with the quality and safety features needed for any woodworking work shop.
