In Detail

Hobby Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

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 two hand wheels, one for longitudinal and one for the transverse movement; the movement being smooth and precise with dovetail slides fitted with jib strips for fine adjustment. The table has a wooden facing for through morticing as well as a length stop for repetition work. Also fitted with a very convenient quick acting vice and two cam-operated work clamps. There is a very clear and well positioned scale at the rear of the table which, combined with the two travel stops, makes for accurate and convenient cutting of long mortices. The down feed handle can be easily re-positioned on its shaft to give the most convenient working position. The weight of the headstock is counter balanced by a gas strut and the vertical movement is controlled by a pair of stops and an easy-to-read scale. The morticing chisel is located in a mounting bush, of 3/4" or 13/16" diameter depending on the size of the chisel, and the auger is driven by a 16mm capacity drill chuck. The morticer is mounted on a cabinet base which includes a cupboard with shelf space for storage.

Not as good as it should be from Axminster

Had this only a few months and already a couple of broken handles. Adjustments won't stay adjusted. Even with a brand new Axminster Japanese chisel the rate of cut is slow.
Despite three workholders the workpiece still tends to lift even if you cut mortices in gentle stages. The cam action on the main work holder seems to be loosening already after 6 or 7 uses of the machine. I have used other "hobby" rated machines, but this one is by far the worst. I wish I had bought a better machine, even at twice the cost because this one is a right pain to use. How I wish Axminster had a trial period like Festool's - I would return it like a shot.

Had this machine for 5 years, was so glad when i upgraded, near every handle has broken and had to be fixed up, not accurate, never again.

Great product, Great service.

Overall this is a fantastic little machine, Everything you could want from a morticer at the price, spent a whole day morticing for some gates, went through it like butter. There were a few bits missing on delivery but one e-mail to axminster and they resolved it straight away. Great product, great service, great company, thankyou.

This is one hell of a tool for the price. A real serious workhorse that absolutely eats anything thrown at it. I had used cheaper models before and this not only has the grunt to get through hardwoods with ease but also the precision with the sliding rails to get the chisel dead into the corner of the mortise. Really superb. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.
