My Delta Mortising Machine, the 14-651, arrived a couple of days ago. I got it into the house by myself using a furniture dolly. Waiting for my oldest son to come visit so I can get it into the basement shop. Plan on making a dedicated table similar to my Table Saw Table and Router Table.
I like to make all of my tables so that the work surface is at the same height. That way the material handling equipment (read, rollers) doesn’t need to be adjusted between machines. The rollers I have are Harbor Freight and they are really hard to adjust since they need to be locked down tight in order to not slip. Has anyone figured out what needs to be done to a Harbor Freight roller?
Read through the manual and I can’t find much about table mounting. The manual does show that there are two mounting holes, one on each side of the base. There is no recommended footprint for mounting so I guess I will need to measure what is needed. My other tables have the same sized top and can be interchanged.
There is also nothing about how high up the work surface is from the bottom of the unit. Again, I will need to measure.
Here is what is inside the box:
