Bought the Steel City Mortiser today on the way home from work. link to tool store Mueller
Assembly, no problems … intuitive design
Came with 4 bits and chisels. Black and white, printed boxes exactlly the same as came with my old Delta.
Fence looks real good. Nice design. Fine adjustment knob is a plus. Worked good.
Big table base , easy to fasten to work bench. Very stable.
Pull out, cast iron table extensions go to about 36 inches. Solid fit.
I thought the $289 price was a good deal.
Rubber rollers hold the stock next to the fence very well.
Tool tray only 4 places
Will need to buy the Height Attachment. It Raises the height of the mortising head 2 3/8” to accommodate larger work pieces.
Heavy for a 54 year old man, good thing I have a back support belt
Recommend this one.
