This simple, electrically powered hand planing machine was developed to improve the rate of removal of gelcoat from fibreglass boat hulls. Until now
the gelcoat has been removed by sandblasting or disc sanding. Both of these processes are slow and the depth of removal is dependent upon the skill of
the operator. The GELPLANE'S depth control removes ther possibilty of an uneven depth of cut and it also leaves a clean, smooth finish, ideally suited
for recoating. The machine is reliable and easily maintained.
The machine is essentially an electric motor driving a planing drum through a gearbox and pulley system. The planer drum has two tungsten carbide cutting
blades which are easily replaceable. The assembly is adjustable to give the required cut depth for any special surfaces, Replacement blades are disposable and
readily available. The GELPLANE is supplied set to cut left to right.
For optimum performance a good vacuum system must be attached to the cowling to take away the gelcoat swarf and glass fibre dust. The only power source
required is either a 110v or a 240v, 50 Hz A.C. mains electricity supply.
Operating and Maintenance Manual will be enclosed.
