Topic tags/keywords: question mortiser 14-650 bushing

I’m hoping somebody can help me find an adapter for my Delta 14-650 T2 mortiser. This model uses 5/8” chisels, and I would like to locate a 3/4” bushing or adapter that would allow me to use 3/4” chisels. Hopefully somebody has an idea. I called Delta Parts and they have nothing available. They referred me to Mike’s Tools and I will call them as soon as it is late enough in the day in California, lol. The other idea I have seen posted is locating a shop to have the part machined locally? Not sure how to go about that, would I just look for “machine shop” in the yellow pages? Any advice would be useful. Thanks in advance.

Hmmm. Easier to bush down that to bush up. Interesting dilemma, if I read your post correctly.

If you were looking for to do some machining, it would be to take the 3/4” shank and reduce it to 5/8”

I don’t want to modify an existing part. I want a new part with different dimensions. Anyway, I think this site may have the answer.

Or, just buy chisels with 5/8” shanks.

The only reason to use 3/4 shank chisels is to cut bigger mortises. The machine may not like doing that unless its soft wood. Also, how will a bushing help? Your machine has a 5/8” hole. A bushing will make the hole even smaller. If you found an adapter that would cause the 3/4” chisel to be too long and the drill bit too short. Unless I’m not understanding what you’re doing.

Agreed. Like I said above, bushing down is easier than bushing up.

This is the best idea. I found some at Lee Valley that go up to 5/8” chisels with a 5/8” shank, which is the size mortise I am after ultimately. It would be nice to be able to use 3/4” chisels though if needed.

Rikon makes a clone of the Delta mortiser. The Rikon has a 3/4” bushing you can order.
I finally have a machine that will accept any size chisels, and it is really nice.

Do you happen to know the model number of the Rikon? Got a site to order the part? My google-fu is weak this morning. I turned up nothing on a search.
