Machine overview

By

The Scheppach HM 2 Kombi jointer planer is a sturdy machine with at least 8 available extensions. It is the successor of the Scheppach HM 1. The HM0 Solo jointer planer is the same machine, but without any extensions available.

The HM1 and HM2 are sturdy machines that will last a long time, and can therefore be found often on the second-hand market. They are made of mostly sheet metal (including the tables), making them less accurate and straight. It also makes them more susceptible to rust.

Many Extensions

What they lack in accuracy and refinement, they make up for in price and the large number of extensions. Among the possible extensions are a table sawspindle moulder, mortising table, belt sander and disc sander, grinding wheel and even a lathe and band saw. Most of these are interchangeable between the HM 1 and HM 2.

Despite their quality issues, they are often the first machine of choice for beginning woodworking enthusiasts and a decent machine to start learning how to operate a jointer planer. The HM 2 is slightly more refined and stable and therefore preferable to the HM 1.

Replacement Blades: If you’re looking for new blades for your Scheppach HM2, there are a few places still selling them. For example, here on Amazon Germany, Amazon UK, or here on eBay (slightly cheaper).

Machine Atlas Verdict

Sturdy, slightly unrefined machine with many extensions. Solid first machine for hobbyist woodworkers.

    • Hi Matt, I couldn’t find it for the HM1 either, but maybe you could check out the HM2 manual? That one is actually available in English and the machines are very similar.

    • Hi Logi, you can check with this German website to see if they want to send to Iceland. They do ship within the EU for sure, and they might send to Iceland as well. The page I linked to has the specific belt you’re looking for.

      Hope that helps.
