Benchtop Mortiser 1/2″ Chuck Capacity 1/2Hp 34-255 Rikon, Manufactured in China.


How do you drill square holes? With a mortiser! These specially designed, drill press-type machines use a drill bit housed inside of a square chisel to perform this feat. The drill bit starts boring a hole in your wood, then immediately the square chisel follows – forming the square shape, while its interior bevel forces the excess wood that is remaining in the corner sections into the spinning drill bit. The drill’s flutes then carry away the cut chips up and out of the mortise. All this is done in seconds, permitting you to cut accurate mortises for furniture, cabinetry, doors, shutters and more.


Benchtop Mortising Machine #34-255 provides a wide, machined cast iron base with pull-out side extensions for extra work piece support. Innovative roller clamps keep your stock against the back fence, but allow the work to move left or right without having to unclamp the rollers. Fence is easily positioned with its geared lever. Operating handle is spring loaded, so that it can be quickly adjusted to different
