Press release date: October 21, 2003

Powerful machine delivers 66 cuts per inch for super-fine finish

(Elyria, Ohio) RIDGID's® 13" Thickness Planer (Model TP1300LS) provides the power and snipe control professionals demand, along with features that help ensure accurate cuts. The space-conscious planer also offers a big-tool cutting capacity of 13" x 6", and produces a superior finish on all kinds of stock.

"RIDGID designed this planer to control snipe and improve cutting accuracy, resulting in less waste. Ultimately, this means greater productivity for professionals, who depend on their tools for high quality performance day after day," said Jeff Drake, spokesperson for RIDGID.

The 13" thickness planer features the Sure-Cut(TM) locking mechanism to minimize snipe. As the work piece is fed into the machine, Sure-Cut stabilizes the cutterhead, allowing the rollers to apply even pressure to the material. Then, powered by a 15 Amp motor, the planer surfaces rough faces at a blazing 66 cuts per inch and 18,000 cuts per minute.

For improved accuracy, professionals can quickly measure cutting depth before each pass with the Ind-I-Cut(TM) depth measurement system. The planer also includes RIDGID's Repeat-A-Cut(TM) depth stops for producing multiple boards of the same thickness. The operator simply slides a detent lever to one of eight stops (1/8" to 1-3/4") to set the desired thickness of the finished work piece.

Two cutting edges per blade allow twice as much cutting before replacement, and thanks to a unique blade changing tool, changes are quick and easy. The tool's clever hook and magnet design makes blade removal and replacement on the cutterhead simple.

Sizable 12" x 14" infeed and outfeed tables on the RIDGID planer provide support For large work pieces, and flip up when the machine is not in use to allow space for other tasks. Included with each planer is a heavy duty steel stand that provides stable support for the machine in use. Other convenient features include an extra set of dual-edge blades ($30 value), on-board tool and replacement blade storage, a cord wrap, and upper and lower Sof-Touch(TM) carrying handles. Sof-Touch(TM) knobs also provide user comfort when making adjustments.
