Top customer reviews
It easily and smoothly plunges a first mortise (about 11/16" x 2-1/16" with the 18mm chain) all the way through a 6x6. It has a depth setting which brings up the only negative... in a blind mortise the bottom will be rounded - you have to cut down about 1.25" deeper than your tenon. Then you rotate the chain to position 1 and cut again, then position 2 and cut a third time. You now have a mortise about 5" wide all the way through. Pull a lever and the chain moves forward about a half inch and the process repeats. If necessary, adjust the unit for the next cut and repeat. In my case, I'm cutting 2" x 5.5" all the way through... takes about 10 minutes per mortise and the result is a perfectly sized rectangular hole. It also will cut lap joints (for the tenon), but this is more difficult to set up.
Can't recommend this tool enough. I planned to sell this machine when I'm done with the barn, but I might have to keep it just because it is so well engineered. Anyone want to buy some chisels?
The wing nut for the depth stop is crap and if the machine digs it can knock it loose so careful what you are mortising over. Also the little handle for dialing the head in and out couldn't be any smaller. my advice is leave yourself a little room and go back and clean up with a chisel. the teeth don't give a precise cut at least in oak.
Other than that it is great
