Axminster Hobby Series AW16BMST2 Bench Morticer
This solidly built cast iron bench top machine has the huge benefit of both lateral and longitudinal table movement.
Manoeuvring the workpiece into position is a simple matter of using the hand wheels. The table work clamp has multiple locating pin positions and can even clamp tapered work. The table and headstock both run on dovetail slides with adjustable jib strips, ensuring years of accurate use. A gas strut counterbalances the weight of the head and motor and gives great down-feed control. The quiet, cool running alloy bodied motor provides ample power for any job. The morticer has adjustable stops on both vertical and horizontal movements for repeat work. This is a perfect morticer for home use.
Supplied with mortice auger chuck and key, chisel bush and service tools. Long shank mortice bits may need the shank length reducing.
Axcaliber Chisels & Bits
The chisels are made from hardened tool steel (RC64) and the design incorporates an auger with a deep, high ratio flute, which quickly removes the waste chippings from the mortice. The auger bit has a conical point on the end and one cutting spur, which is very easy to sharpen with a small file. The most innovative part of the design is a unique shank collar. Once set and locked in the correct position, it allows you to insert the bit quickly to a given depth into the chuck or collet of the machine. The result is that the chisel no longer needs adjusting each time. Simply lock the collar in the right place, insert the auger into the machine chuck, set the chisel correctly and it is ready to start cutting mortices. The collar also prevents the chisel from accidentally dropping onto the surface of the morticer bed. The bore of the chisel is ground to size to ensure minimal bit clearance for clean waste removal.
