Er.....? What's wrong with it? Looks remarkably like a knock-off of the old Inca model which was a useable piece of kit for a small workshop.

Would depend on the quality of the mouldings (castings doesn't come into it!), but still useable.

It's an almost direct copy of the saw / planer thicknesser part of a Kity K5 (also French) - even the same colours. Just small table and no spindle moulder. I bet the motor is 1ph as well. Alloy tables, same adjustments guides as the eary models, 200mm sawblade 150 x 100 thicknesser.

Nothing wrong with it in the right hands if it's well constructed.

Good Lord!

What fool dreamed that up? :shock:

Looks virtually unused and I'm not surprised! :mrgreen:
Whats wrong with it ????
As far as I can see it has all the guards it needs
and for a really small workshop could make life easier #-o

Not Something I'd buy but I can understand where it could come in handy
A Handyman on site for example

The second picture (the label) even says K5 on it...
I didn't spot that Pete #-o

I wonder if they were made under licence or if they bought the rights when Kity went bust. If so then other Kity machines might have been involved as well and perhaps an avenue to explore for spare parts?
