Setting up the 14-651 is a breeze thanks to features such as the easy-access 3/8-inch-capacity drill chuck and adjustable rack-and-pinion fence. A height attachment increases the mortiser's capacity by 1-3/4 inch, and if you still need more height, you can simply turn the 14-651's head 180 degrees to mortise off-table.
Engaging and releasing via an efficient rack-and-pinion system, the 14-651's head features an adjustable dovetail option for intricate jobs. The lever locks down and is long enough to provide that extra torque you need to mortise especially hard woods.
Robust Motor Guarantees Professional Results
Powered by a 1/2-horsepower, 120-volt, 60-hertz, single-phase induction motor, the 14-651 produces smooth-sided, burn-feed results. The mortiser features a feed speed of 1,725 RPM and a multi-position feed lever for matching the correct position to the job.
Additionally, the adjustable depth stop locks down, so you don't have to worry about cutting too deep, and a chuck key/hex wrench simplifies bit and chisel changing.
Stable and Sturdy for Tough Jobs
Stable and sturdy, this machine measures 22.4 x 18.6 x 16.4 inches (WxHxD), weighs 77 pounds, and includes a heavy-duty 16-3/4-inch by 13-1/2-inch cast-iron base with center through hole, as well as a two-piece safety fence.
The 14-651 arrives with a tool-and-chisel tray, a multi-position feed level, and a gas-filled head stabilizer for smooth, steady operation. Also, four mortise chisels and bits in 1/4, 5/16, 3/8, and 1/2-inch increments are included, so you have everything you need to get started.
