Shop Fox W1671 Mortising Machine

3/4 HP Motor

We designed this Mortising Machine to address all the frustrations we found in other models on the market. We've added features like a 1/2 inch drill chuck, a quick-setting handle, an adjustable depth stop and a reliable rack and pinion elevation system. Combined with a 3/4 H.P. motor, a safety switch with removable key and a cord set, the Shop Fox Mortising Machine will give years of satisfying use.

  • Top Value Award Winner by Wood Magazine

Dual Access Doors

With doors on both sides of the headstock, the 1/2 inch JT #2 chuck is easily accessed for quick chisel changes. This mortising machine accepts chisels with shank sizes of 5/8 or 3/4 inche shanks.

Powerful Motor

The 3/4 HP totally enclosed fan-cooled motor features an aluminum-finned housing for long cool-running operation. The spindle turns at 3450 RPM, allowing you to power through a range of both hard & soft woods with ease. This high-speed direct drive operation allows for faster mortises so the cutter is in contact with the wood for shorter periods of time with less heat build-up. This prevents wood burning and keeps your bits and cutters sharper, longer.

Extra Long Handle

The extra-long steel handle easily adjusts to six different indexed positions to provide leverage throughout the full 9 inches of head travel. It is offset to put your wrist in a comfortable position for maximum power and control.

Specifications

  • Motor: 3/4 HP, single-phase, 3450 RPM, 8A, aluminum finned
  • Jacobs taper #2 spindle
  • Maximum stock width: 8"
  • Maximum stock thickness: 7-3/8"
  • Maximum mortising depth: 4-1/2"
  • Maximum chisel travel: 4-3/4"
  • Column to chisel distance: 6-1/4"
  • Footprint: 14" x 11"
  • Handle length: 22"
  • Weight: 90 lbs.

Swivel Base

For off the bench operations

If you need to mortise larger stock and require extra height and depth capacity, it’s no problem with this mortiser’s unique swiveling base feature. This set-up is done in a few easy steps and allows easy off the bench operations and opens new possibilities for custom mortises.

Heavy Duty Fence, Table and Hold Down

The heavy cast iron base features a 6 x 16 inch table for solid work support and stability. The heavy-duty fence and cast iron hold-down eliminate unwanted wood movement and the potential for 'stuck-chisels', a common issue when trying to mortise on non-dedicated machines, like drill presses.

Accessories

The W1671 includes a 1/2 inch chisel and six individual chisels from 1/4 to 3/4 inches (D2839 - D2844) to fit this machine are available. A 4 Pc. SHOP FOX Chisel Set (D2845) covering the most popular sizes is also available.

Features

  • Adjustable depth stop rod
  • Unique swiveling base
  • Gas spring return
  • Double support columns
  • Heavy cast iron construction

I bought this machine at my local woodworker store. They were having a sale and the lower price included two extra drill/chisel sets. Plus the machine was already assembled and ready to go. Sorry Amazon.
First of all, make sure to read the manual completely before assembly or attempting your first mortise. This includes the little sidebars and warning captions. Especially the one about cutting sequence.
I found the manual to be pretty complete and informative, apperantly they have upgraded it since the last reviewer got his machine. I also found the fit and finish to be very good, without the burrs and misshaped screw heads previously reported.
After reading the manual, I set the machine up with the 1/2 chisel set and did some practice mortising in a couple of 2x4's.The large door opening makes bit/chisel changes easy, even if you have large hands. There is a learning curve involved in getting the drill bit set correctly in relationship to the chisel head. You need the drill to lead the chisel by a 1/32 of an inch...thickness of a dime. Once I got the proper clearance figured out, I was cutting mortises with ease. This is a pretty strong machine, and I found that by letting the machine do all the work, I achieved very nice results. Being able to adjust the handle, for deeper cuts, with one hand is a very nice feature. I have used the Delta and Jet Mortiser's and find that I do prefer the Shop Fox. That extra 1/4 hp does make a differance. It cut easily thru the fir 2x4's and made very square holes. Once I had the fence square to the chisel, it stayed in place. The hold down functions well and has a nice big foot. I leave it a little loose and use a wedge between it and the material, something I saw on New Yankee, so I can slide the material along with minimal hassel.

I bought this machine to replace my JBM-5 Jet Mortiser. The promise of a beefier machine with a 1/2" chuck (vs. 3/8" for the Jet) was what attracted me to the Shop Fox. I received it yesterday, and spent a couple of hours assembling it and making some test mortises. Below follows my list of pros and cons.

Pros:

1) First and foremost, this machine offers great value in a mortiser. This made-in-China mortiser is a lower cost option than its Taiwan-made competitors such as Jet and Delta. $247 including shipping is hard to beat.
2) Beefier than either of the above mentioned machines. More iron in the casting. Dual columns. Weighs 87 lbs assembled. The fence and base are much more substantial than the Jet. The substantial, adjustable handle offers more mechanical force advantage over my Jet.
3) 3/4 HP motor running at 3450rpm, vs 1/2 HP 1725rpm on the above-mentioned competitors.
4) 6 1/2"+ capacity from bit to column (fence removed) 4" with fence in place. The latter can also be increased by re-bolting the fence support block into different predrilled holes.
5) 8 1/2" Height capacity--unlimited if the head is swiveled to the edge of the bench. Hold-down comes with 3 rods of multiple lengths to suit the capacity you need.
6) Fence has a micro adjustment.

Cons:

Most of the cons can be attributed to poor quality control.

1) Casting are fairly rough, although the machined portions of them are fine.
2) The spray painting job leaves something to be desired. Mediocre quality. Motor housing badly sprayed.
3) Depth Stop rod arrived bent out of the box. It won't affect its function, but a half inch bow isn't pretty.
4) Plastic electrical switch and capacitor housing was loose.

I upgraded from a drill press attachment to this machine a few years back. Happened to get it on sale locally pretty cheap and have absolutely no regrets whatsoever. It'll cut mortices easily without fuss provided it has a sharp chisel and bit. The machine is solid, heavy, and adequately powered. In fact, it's first task was to cut many 1/2" mortices in 10/4 White Oak to build my workbench base and it went very well. My only complaint (reason for 4 stars) is I absolutely didn't like the cheapo particle board table and immediately replaced it with a table and hold downs sold by Rockler (another $40 and highly recommended, BTW) I chose this machine above the others mostly because of it's feel. It felt more substantial, the longer handle felt right, the quill was fairly easily accesible for bigger fingers and the action traveled smoothly on the gas strut. I like the on-board bit/tool storage, but I've accumulated enough accesories now that I have a drawer dedicated to storage for the stuff that goes with this machine. Overall, it's been a great time saver and great tool for joinery in furniture building.

Haven't actually put it to use but am happy with the overall set-up and quality. Unfortunately they need to fire their packaging engineer 'cuz my dog could have designed a better and properly reinforced package. Mine arrived (nobody home) with the carton busted open at the seam and PS foam everywhere. The motor fan and guard were mashed and, while easily replaced. Amazon only does replacements, not replacement parts. So now that I have the thing all set up, I need to tear it down and re-box it if I want it replaced. Oh - and they're on back-order to boot! So you may consider an alternative supplier (one who can provide repair parts) if you need to use the machine any time soon or repair it in the future. Good luck.

UPDATE...

Called Shop Fox customer service and they had replacement parts to me about two days later with no questions asked. Really helpful and cooperative - beyond my expectations! And it works well too!
