Features

The Benchtop Mortise Machine, 1/2-Inch Capacity, 1/2HP, 1725 RPM, from JETĀ® helps you create cut joints that fit tenons for your various woodworking tasks. This Jet mortise machine's 1/2 hp motor is strong enough to power through tough material quickly. It's made from heavy-duty steel and cast iron and is durable enough to stand up to all sorts of regular use. Two hinged side doors provide you with easy access to the Jet benchtop mortise machine's chuck for quick changes. Rack-and-pinion actuation gives you accurate control for more precise results. A depth stop allows you to set the machine to a fixed measurement for easily repeatable work for when you need multiple pieces with the same mortise depth. The on/off switch is removable to prevent unauthorized activation. You can reverse the column when you need to work on larger pieces.

Customer Reviews
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice mortiser for the price I purchased the Jet mortiser after extensive research on those available. My deciding factors were price and weight as I have a small shop and needed to be able to store it while not in use. My first choice eas the Powermatic model but at close to 100 pounds and more expensive opted for the Jet. Glad I did as it gets the job done well. The only issue I had was it was shipped in the original packaging and the top metal housing covering a plastic fan to cool the motor was bent in and was hitting the plastic fan. Rather than send it back I was able to remove the cover and bend it back in to shape. The mortiser came with three chisels, 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch. Before arrempting to use the chisels I suggest sharpening them and cleaning up the square sides of the chisels, will make it much easier to drill the mortise. Will get some better quality chisels in the future. If you plan on doing a lot of mortises in a production shop this might not be the best choice, but for a small shop with the occasional mortise it works great.
