Mortisers make square or rectangular holes for your mortise and tenon joints or other special projects. They do this by a two-part action where a drill bit hollows out most of the joint hole, and then a square chisel bit follows it to scrape out a square hole.
A hollow chisel mortiser is the most common kind. These bench and stationary machines allow you to create mortises in seconds. These come in tilting variants to make angled mortises. Strong, cast-iron bodies protect these tools from impacts and keep them where you want them for optimum workflow. Be sure to purchase several sizes of bits to correspond with any project that arises. Useful extra features include reversible levers for right- or left-handed operation and the ability to drill down to specific depths for repeatable work.
A lock mortiser creates a mortise that lets you install door locks. This takes minutes or even hours off your total work time. It also ensures that your mortise perfectly fits the lock for a safe and secure entry door. Hole saws and guide boxes are the only bench and stationary accessories you need to install a door knob in a blank door.
Benchtop mortisers are more portable than their larger counterparts. You can easily transport them to where you need to work and set them up on a sturdy workbench. Benchtop mortisers deliver similar performance in a smaller body, but they do require that you secure them properly.
Drill presses, mortisers and accessories ensure that you have a perfect fit for your mortise and tenon joints or door locks. They do precision work in seconds to save you time and labor. Add mortisers to your workshop's collection and finish your jobs with speed and accuracy.
