MCT6 3/4" Professional Quality Chisel & Bit
Extensive use of cast iron gives the entire machine strength and solidity allowing larger sizes of chisels to be used without flexing. The down feed handle can be adjusted so that a comfortable starting position can always be found. When cutting mortices in smaller timber the head can be lowered, so that the starting point of the chisel is just above the timber, which speeds up cutting.
When working with this machine the timber is held in place by a front clamp with a quick action lock and two further cam lock clamps which hold the timber firmly down against the table, to prevent lifting when raising the chisel.
There are then two separate controls for moving the table. Firstly the operator winds the table forwards or back until the chisel is aligned with the back edge of the mortice. The second hand wheel is turned to move the table left or right until the chisel is positioned at one end of the mortice. The motor has been specially produced to run at a lower rpm than standard motors, which gives a better cut, with less chance of burning.
The cabinet style base, included as standard, has a lockable hinged door on the front with a large storage area inside, perfect for keeping your chisels and service tools safe. 4 adjustable rubber feet ensure that levelling on an uneven floor is simple.
For anyone involved in component production, and wanting to make a series of identical cuts there are stops fitted to the table travel to set the width of the mortice.
Supplied with, chuck key, mortice depth stop, handle return stop, Left and Right table stops, Length stop, 3/4" chisel bush, adjustable rubber feet, cable and plug.
