The MB100 SlabMizer slab flattening mill from Wood-Mizer produces high-quality flattened wood slabs up to 36” wide with minimal labor. The MB100 joins the Wood-Mizer slab flattening mill product range for efficiently surfacing and flattening wood slabs, boards, burls, cookies, and other wide material.

Compared to a traditional router or planer, the MB100 SlabMizer flattens material up to 36” wide and 8” thick in less time using a 3HP electric 5" cutting head equipped with five 4-sided carbide knives. For wider material, Wood-Mizer offers the MB200 SlabMizer capable of processing material up to 56” or 72” wide.

To flatten material, the cutter head is moved side-to-side with a handle and secured with pre-set notches. With a manual push feed bar, the cutter head is moved forward/reverse until the material features the smooth finish required with each pass. Cutting depth is adjusted from 1/64” to 1/8” in 1/64” increments by a hand crank located on the top of the cutter head.

The MB100 requires at least one LT15WIDE bed section sold separately from Wood-Mizer to operate or can be added to the popular Wood-Mizer LT15WIDE portable sawmill bed to optimize processing space. For longer capacity, unlimited 6’ 8” modular bed sections can be added to extend the material length. Two adjustable clamps to secure material on the bed and four-bed spacers are included with each MB100 slab flattening mill.
