Woodstock International's Shop Fox benchtop mortiser features a heavy-duty fence and hold down that eliminates unwanted wood movement and sticking chisels to ensure accurate and fast operation. It features a swiveling base that allows for off-the-bench operations, and a precision 1/2 inch chuck that eliminates the need to modify chisels and bits. The extra height capacity of the machine allows for the use of stock up to 7-3/8 inches thick. The all-steel quick-adjust depth stop provides a positive stop for repeatable operations. It also features an adjustable length, solid-steel quick-positioning handle; an eight-piece tool holder; two-door chuck access; a large base; and twin hardened-and-ground columns.
