Makita 7104L MorticerThis is a great value product. Very well built as you would expect from Makita. Plenty powerful enough to plough through green oak with ease. The mortice enlarging is a bit fiddly, maybe easier to just re-site the tool along the work piece a bit. I use it for green oak framing and it runs beautifully, very accurate. Only issue with it is that the maximum timber width it can handle is 310mm wide. If your saw mill is supply non-regularised timber (which at that size it probably is) then 310mm is limiting. However for the UK market I imagine it is just perfect. I use mine in France and here the timber trusses can be huge. Love this machine. Good price, Axminster delivered within two days!! Very pleased all round, you won't be sorry and you will be the envy. .-)
