In Detail

A machine in the best tradition, the Axminster Industrial Series SETM-3HD 3 Head Tenoner is designed and built to withstand continuous production use. Its cast iron base, column and slide ways provide a rigid and durable mainframe assembly, and the high efficiency motors supply ample power. The large, ground cast iron sliding table slides easily on its ball race supported wheels, and cutter head slide movements are smooth and easily adjusted on dovetail slides.

Extremely versatile and taking only minutes to set up, the Axminster Industrial SETM-3HD Tenoner is easy to use and accurate in operation. Work is positioned on the rolling table against an end stop and a fence, and is secured by a cam action clamp. Its end is then passed between two vertically mounted cutter heads which machine the top and bottom cheeks of the tenon. The tenon width is set by raising or lowering the top motor, and its position on the timber by raising/lowering the two motors in tandem. Variations in shoulder length are set using the rule on the end stop, and staggered tenons are achieved by simple hand wheel adjustment of the top motor, with digital counters to help the measurements. Each cutting head has provision for profile knives to enable the cross section of the components being jointed to be matched. The standard scribing head allows many different configurations of tenons to be achieved.

Stepped tenons, splayed tenons, scribed tenons, double tenons, and multiple bridles and finger joints are all possible on this versatile machine. Combinations of 90° and bevelled cutting discs with appropriate spacers can also be fitted to produce interleaved joints as used in sash window construction. N.B. 32 Amp supply required.

415v version Good Machine!

I purchased this machine a couple of months ago, as our main tenoner in our new Plymouth joinery workshop. The machine is very easy to set up and use it can produce a very big tenon in one pass in this case about 200mm long (Not recommended). Suggestion to APTC this machine really needs a cut off saw on it to make it a production tool. The only problem we found is that you need to press the three on buttons about 10 seconds apart to turn on as the surge in electricity trips the machine.
