Unlike the majority of manufacturers, the SM255t is designed with a backward tilting spindle. Working from underneath the stock makes for safer working, without restriction on the size of stock being machined, and without obstruction to the pressure guards or power feed. Wood chips are directed into the exhaust outlet in the machine base. 


The SM255t’s unique ‘true vertical’ rise and fall system allows for vertical adjustment of the spindle independent of the tilting mechanism. The angled tool when adjusted up or down thereby retains its position relative to the fence assembly. 

A cast iron table mounted on a heavy duty steel cabinet provides maximum timber support and a stable and accurate base for anchoring the spindle, motor housing, and rise & fall mechanism. All tables feature an anti-friction planed finish. The bearing housing, rise & fall assembly and motor mountings are also in machined cast iron. The spindle is belt driven by an industrial motor and runs in “sealed for life” bearings, which require only minimal maintenance.
