This bench morticer is powered by a 550W, high torque induction motor that is extremely quiet in operation and will mortice up to 16mm in softwood and hardwood. The CNC machined cast table has 160mm 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 120mm high by 100mm deep, with a distance from the centre of chisel to the back fence of 55mm. This power house of a morticer, weighs 42kg and is built and designed for professional use. It is supplied is a 10mm mortice chisel and accepts industry standard 19mm diameter shank mortice chisels. Highly recommended this robust and precise morticer is consistently rated as 5 star in customer reviews. ©

Great piece of kit for the price...

Great piece of kit for the price. The clamp actually works and keeps the workpiece firmly held when the chisel is withdrawn. You will need to buy the extension piece too if you want to construct doors.

The assembly instructions are not that good howeve...

The assembly instructions are not that good however set up is very simple and took me less than 20 minutes. The only tweak I had to make was to adjust the screws on the gib strip because the lateral movement was quite stiff when first out of the box. Really impressed with how quiet the motor runs.

Morticer arrived safely here in Ireland, very easy...

Morticer arrived safely here in Ireland, very easy to assemble and the motor runs extremely quietly. Installed the morticer on a unit I built with two bolts either side of the base. The only thing I would change the handle for a wheel that moves the base side to side. For the money it's an excellent buy and fully recommended.
