Deservedly our best selling morticer, this bench top machine is predominately made from heavy cast iron and has the huge benefit of both sideways and front to back table movement. The workpiece is manoeuvred into place with the table using the convenient hand wheels. There's no more jigging and shimming to get the mortice positioning spot on. The table work clamp has multiple locating pin positions and can even clamp tapered work such as table legs. The table and head stock both run on dovetail slides and are provided with adjustable jib strips ensuring years of accurate use. A gas strut counterbalances the weight of the head and motor and gives great downfeed control. An upgraded, quiet and cool running alloy bodied motor provides ample power for any job. Stops are provided for both vertical and horizontal movements for repeat work. A useful optional accessory is our unique spacer block that can raise the headstock by 50mm, allowing even taller workpieces to be accommodated. Add the optional drill chuck and you have a capable small bench drill as well. This is a perfect morticer for home use.Please note, however good any morticing machine is, it is only as good as the chisel and bit fitted! Supplied with mortice auger chuck and key, chisel bush and service tools. N.B. It takes 3/4" shank chisels only. Long shank mortice bits may need the shank length reducing.

Excellent Piece of hobby equipmentPurchased during the sale period so got myself this as a Christmas present to myself (any old excuse I know!) along with 3 of the Axcaliber Quick Set mortice chiselled bit for around the pre sale price of the machine. Bargain!

Fantastic MachineThis machine was bought for my Christmas present (2015), so on receipt of the machine I quickly set it up, checked it over and had a quick go to check for machining accuracy etc etc.
