Description

In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

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.

OK but has limitations

Out of the box I found that the crude casting used on the workpiece clamp pushed the fixing bolt out of true which meant that you could not secure it down properly. The gib securing the front handwheel is too large for the slot...if you manage to hammer it in then just hope that you never have to remove the wheel. The milled knob for moving the table forwards and backwards is on the small size, the gearing is very fine which means multiple, multiple turns to shift it and all the while if you are not careful your knuckles get shredded on the workpiece clamp knob. The pulldown lever fouls the workpiece clamp knob limiting the length if the mortices.

However I have left the worst until last. The range of movement is asymmetrical. If you put in a piece of timber the maximum width (100mm) then due to limitations in the forwards and backwards movement, you can only make a mortice in the back 3/5 of the workpiece. You can't put the mortice central, for example.

Made 30 windows without a hitch

The export department sent this to my address in the middle of nowhere in The Philippines about 8 months ago. Delivery cost 91 quid, which, considering I did not have to pay VAT was great.
I have done about 150 mortices (mostly mahogany) without a hitch. Back in Europe I have used better machines in the past, but they cost 10 times the price of this one. It is all cast iron so I have not even bothered to bolt it down to it's bench. Thank you to Jade in 'Export' who made this purchase a simple process.

AW16BMST2

Received my machine a couple of weeks ago and I too, found that the chisels did not fit. Took off the quick set collar and removed the clamping bolt but still no joy. Called Axi and they sent me another couple of chisels which also did not fit. I removed the chuck access doors and gave a slight tap with a nail punch to the top side of the supplied installed bush in the adaptor collar, was told this should just fall out but it was jammed tightly in the housing.
On examination it seems that the bush was mis-shaped by the incorrect fitting of the clamping bolt by not aligning the pre-drilled hole with the bolt. Managed to re-shape the bush and with the help of a round file, got the chisels to slide up and down quite freely. Put back the quick set collar and set the auger clearance, continued setting up the chisel and cut a mortice with 2 inch oak.............doddle, brilliant machine and glad I tinkered rather than send it back. First class service from Axi.

Good - but definitely for the hobbyist

I have had my morticer for about three years now and have used in on four jobs, working in Oak. Probably, I should have bought a bigger machine. It is easy to set-up, but a bit tricky to set-up really well. I had to cut through mortices in 100 mm oak stiles and they need to be cut from both sides to ensure they are good and true. But Axminster sell some excellent bits - the Japanese style are definitely the best, but are expensive.

The chuck and runner did not run true and I found I needed to shim under the motor with some 0.20 mm washers before it ran true. Next I will buy a proper pillar drill.
I definitely don't regret buying this morticer - it has helped me do projects I would otherwise not have tackled.

petite machine super !

J'ai commandé cette machine vendredi et je l'ai reçue en Belgique le mercredi matin ! Bravo et merci à AXminster pour la rapidité et le sérieux ...
La machin est géniale , j'hésitais avec le modèle supérieur, je ne regrette rien, elle a la précision, la puissance et un prix défiant toute concurence , une mortaise de 12 mm dans du chêne , ça rentre comme dans du beurre, machine à conseiller absolument
