A few tips for lifting heavy stuff and finding where nuts and bolts go in the setting up of my mortice machine.
Feel free to ask any questions and If I can answer them I will add the answers to the blog.

Nice Mortising machine mate!
I have a drill press Mortising attachment. My instructions say the slot where the chips are relieved on the chisel should be facing right or left not front to back. I gave it some thought but still don’t know why that matters much.

Checked out the company in NZ. Couldn’t find any here in MN. LOL Looks like you are setting up for production? Won’t have to go to the school. Did you have a lower grade model? Not sure if I had observed one in the home work shop? About 3 times a delta morticer sold by amazon? So it should make the task more efficient?

Gonna be hard to copy your projects in my shop when you get really high tech. :)

Nice piece of equipment. And real men don’t need no damn directions! Until they screw it up. LOL

I have the same thing Woodshaver does, but still brand new in box. Gotta set up my floor drill press first, which is also still in the box!

Going back to insurance billing! #%^&!

Wow!! Nice Mortise Machine, the features heavy duty.

Use some Teflon Non-Stick Dry-Film Lubricant spray on the bits before use.

Hey Andy
