What’s in the kit?
Robust, variable speed motor that will suit all Arbortech attachments for optimal power carving performance. Use with a combination of included accessories specifically designed for the TURBO Plane (not included) for added features such as dust removal and unique planing and smoothing functionality.
Designed for initial sanding stages, this high performance, slightly flexible Sanding Pad is ideal for sanding medium to large projects and is capable of moulding to slight contours due to the flexible lip. Use the Sanding Pad in combination with the Chip Catcher and attach a vacuum to control wood dust.
When used with the TURBO Plane, this attachment allows for an extremely flat levelled surface. Use with the Sanding Pad to achieve a very even smooth finish.
Top tip: Connect the Chip Tube to the Levelling Guide to funnel wood chips.
Designed to collect dust and chips during free form carving and sanding stages.
Sanding stage: fit the Sanding Pad into the Chip Catcher and attach to a vacuum to extract wood dust during sanding.
Carving stage: fit the Chip Tube or a vacuum to reduce wood chips during free form carving stages with the TURBO Plane.
Without a vacuum, the Chip Tube is an easy option to funnel wood chips into a bucket to reduce mess.
Top tip: Once connected to the Chip Catcher or Levelling Guide, the Chip Tube will funnel wood chips straight onto the floor or into a bucket.
Use the fan in conjunction with the Chip Tube and the TURBO Plane to get rid of most of the wood chips and dust without a vacuum. As well as the above, the package also includes Assorted Sanding Discs (3 x 60, 120, 180, 240 grit) and a metal guard.
