Product Description

Bench top hollow chisel morticer with an accurate sliding table system. New: Adjustable Downfeed Handle Table Moves Through X and Y Axis Cast Iron Head, For Strength & Stability Cast Iron Table, Hard Wearing For A Long Life Cast Iron Fence, For Secure Workpiece Clamping Cast Iron Base, For Fixing to a Workbench Plunging Head Controlled by Gas Filled Spring Quite Induction Motor Delivers The Power Using Cast Iron throughout gives the strength and rigidity to this mortiser, to allow timbers of up to 125mm deep and 145mm high to be clamped securely.There are two separate controls for moving the table. Firstly the operator winds the table forwards or back until the chisel is aligned with the back edge of the mortice. Secondly the hand wheel is turned to move the table left or right until the chisel is positioned at one end of the mortice. Pulling the downfeed handle lowers the chisel and begins the cut. Once the first square has been cut, the chisel is withdrawn, and the table moved over to begin the next square. Once the complete length of the mortice has been cut, the table can then be wound backwards as required to create a wider mortice.A recent upgrade to this model is the inclusion of an adjustable mechanism on the downfeed handle. It allows a comfortable handle starting position to be set, regardless of the height of the work piece. A morticer with a sliding bed is more accurate and faster to achieve results. Also, a great deal easier to use than using the traditional style of morticer with a fixed bed. The motor has been specially produced to run at a lower rpm than standard motors, which gives a better cut, with less chance of burning.For anyone wanting to make a series of identical cuts there is a limit stop for the left and right side of the table movement. Supplied with, mortice depth stop, handle return stop, chuck key, work clamp, 3/4" chisel bush, cable and plug. Chisels are supplied separately.
