Powermatic benchtop mortisers have quick-adjusting, in-line depth stops that ensure precise repeat cuts. Their cam lock secures the position of the table fence with one, 90-degree motion. These benchtop mortisers also have a double-lock mechanism for securing workpieces in place. They feature a dual-spacer system that can adjust the room required between the bit and chisel for particular workpieces. Powermatic mortises with stands have a tiltable table to accommodate angled mortises up to 35 degrees, with a swiveling, adjustable clamp to hold workpieces securely in place when angled. The tilt-table mortisers also have quick-adjusting linear and flip-down stops for repeat production mortising, plus oversized handwheels to ensure that linear and cross-table movements are controllable with little exertion.
Both mortises with stands and benchtop models have a rack-and-pinion system for lowering the head onto the workpiece. They also come with a large, hinged door that provides direct access to the drill chuck. When combined with the cabinet profiling capabilities of Powermatic shapers, mortisers provide the intricate joinery work that typifies high-quality decorative furniture. Choose mortisers from Powermatic for the accuracy of their joinery cuts and the crispness of their edges to ensure joints that last a lifetime.
