The ideal bench morticer for the workshop or site use, with a 13mm(1/2") capacity and 370W Input motor. The cast iron fence moves backwards and forth with a parallel motion easing the job of cutting wide mortices. Both the fence and the hold-down are locked in position with ratchet action handles. Access to the chuck is made easy with an extra long chuck key and spring loaded doors. The handle has a spring-loaded splined mounting for quick re-setting to the most convenient operating position. The slideways are all fully adjustable so that any wear or slack may be taken up. The complete head and pillar assembly can be rotated through 180° for large capacity work over the edge of the bench. Optional accessories include, a drill chuck and adaptor which enables the machine to be used as a small pillar drill with a maximum drill shank capacity of 10mm. The machine is supplied without chisels, but is supplied with a precision ground bushing to accept 3/4" shanked chisels.

Excellent productI've owned this item for a number of years now, and I was lucky enough to purchase the item when it came complete with an additional riser to allow deeper items to be morticed and an extra chuck. Providing you are not too enthusiastic and mortice the timber a little at a time and are not too greedy, the machine cuts a decent straight and square mortice. Although this is not one of my machines I use frequently, when I nave used it I have always been satisfied with the end result.
