I just finished building this Horizontal Mortise Machine using Matthias Wandel’s plan on woodgears.ca
It took me a couple of weeks to build and I’m happy with the outcome. I made a few test cuts (mortise and tendon’s) and the machine was very accurate. The screw has 16 threads per inch and the counter had 32 notches so each turn is 1/16” so once around the counter = 2”. 4 turns = 1/4” and so on. It’s a nice little system!
I found a brand new never opened 2 1/4 HP Porter Cable Router on Craigslist for $100 bucks and used it to power the machine.
Thanks for looking!
