Package deal comprises Axminster Hobby Series AW19FM Floor Standing Morticer plus 3 Axcaliber Chisels & Bits (1/4", 3/8" and 1/2").
Axminster Hobby Series AW19FM Floor Standing Morticer
This is a robust morticer of substantial cast iron construction, suitable for use in any home workshop and with plenty of power to cut 19mm mortices in softwoods.
The table travel is controlled by 2 hand wheels, one for longitudinal and one for the lateral movement. The table has a wooden facing for through morticing as well as a length stop for repetition work. It features a convenient quick acting vice and 2 cam-operated work clamps. There is a very clear scale at the rear of the table, which combined with the 2 travel stops, makes for accurate and convenient cutting of long mortices. A gas strut counterbalances the weight of the headstock and a pair of stops with an easy-to-read scale controls the vertical movement. The morticing chisel is located in a mounting bush, of 3/4" or 13/16" diameter depending on the size of the chisel. The cabinet base includes a cupboard with shelf for storage.
Axcaliber Chisels & Bits
The chisels sets 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.
