Machine overview

When you sign up, you can:

By

The Lurem Former RD30 is a jointer planer which has 300mm jointing and planing width. It was one of the last machines made by Lurem in France, although the design comes from the Elektra Beckum and Metabo HC300. Those machines were also made by Lurem in France.

Detachable jointer table

Most machines of this size (300mm and wider) have tables that fold upwards. On the RD30 however, you have to remove the outfeed table to switch to planing mode. This is the same on the smaller version of this machine, the Lurem RD26.

The detachable table is secured with special locking mechanism that seems a bit more solid and secure than that found on the HC260 machines.

Power and Anti-kickback system

The machine runs on 1850 Watt (2850 in 3 phase) and has a patented anti-kickback system, which helps when you’re trying to take off too much material in one pass. It has a long fence (800 x 150mm) and the tables are quite long too (1200mm).

Replacement Blades: If you’re looking for replacement blades, you can find some that are advertised as being specifically for the Lurem RD30 on eBay, or some for the Metabo / EB HC300 on Amazon (that will also 99% likely fit the Lurem).

Machine Atlas Verdict

All-round solid machine. Can be a really good value if you're looking for a 300mm machine.
