This bench morticer is powered by a 500W, high torque induction motor that is extremely quiet in operation and will mortice up to 16mm in softwood and 13mm in hardwood with ease. The CNC machined cast table has 100mm lateral (side to side) and 40mm longitudinal (front to back) movement operated by two independent handles. This dual action movement allows you to smoothly and accurately align the wood under the chisel and bit for pin point morticing. This method means that you do not need to manually move the wood and hold it in place every cut.

Made from grey iron castings the headstock and table run on dovetail slides. The dovetail slides are fully adjustable to allow for the elimination of any play that may occur from heavy or prolonged use, resulting in a machine that will maintain its accuracy over a lifetime. A gas strut counterbalances the weight of the headstock ensuring a controlled and smooth movement of the chisel into the workpiece. The jaws of the clamp are fractionally inward-tapered to powerfully hold the wood in position, which prevents the wood from rising off the table when removing the chisel. For repetitive depth and length morticing, reliable horizontal and vertical depth stops are provided.

The maximum workpiece size is 110mm high by 120mm deep, with a distance from the centre of chisel to the back fence of 75mm. The optional height extension bracket increases the workpiece height capacity from 110mm to 160mm when working on oversized stock. This power house of a morticer, weighs 46kg and is built and designed for professional use. It accepts industry standard 19mm diameter shank mortice chisels and is supplied in two boxes for ease of transportation. Highly recommended this robust and precise morticer is consistently rated as 5 star in customer reviews. ©
