Newman Machine Company is pleased to announce the EQ3 Equalizing Double Planer.
The EQ3 is the first Planer that properly pre-surfaces boards, which provides an improved divided cut over existing self-centering, opposed cut planers.
Defects that are common to the species, those that are introduced thru sawing, drying and/or handling all combine to affect the quality and yield of the surfaced board. While removing an equal amount of material from the top and bottom surfaces can be advantageous, most planed boards will yield more usable lumber of higher quality if the surfaces can be equalized prior to finish planning.
With the NEW EQ3 you get Increased yield, higher quality finish and reduced split cupped Lumber.
The EQ3 Module can also be added as a retrofit to your existing planer.
