So I apparently bid on and won a Woodtek 900881 chisel mortiser. It’s a 1HP model. I can’t find any documentation on it though it seems. Anyone have any insight on it or know where I can find some info on it?

Thanks, Rich

That’s only a 1/2 power one… Not sure what the differences will be. I also know nothing about the bits to get. Are all bits universal like on a drill press?

The square chisels have a shank size and you can
only use ones you have the bushings for.

The drill inside chucks into a drill chuck. My hollow
mortiser was like that anyway.

The link above says it takes 5/8” shank chisels. That’s a common size, my Delta mortiser takes 5/8” shanks.
My Jet floor mortiser accepts either 5/8” or 3/4” shanks. If you buy a set with 5/8” shank you should be fine.

You can confirm this by measuring the bushing that accepts the bits.

Have fun.

I have used Delta, Jet, Grizzly and Woodstock brand chisels. They all cut about the same. Never as shiny as the marketing pictures would have you believe, and all seem to need honing and sharpening. Oddly, the only one that ever failed was the most expensive Jet brand. Well, I’ve had several 1/4” drill bits break over time but the square chisels are pretty sturdy. This one Jet chisel curled under like a bobby pin. Then again I have other Jet chisels that have really lasted, so maybe it was a fluke.

I get the Woodstock ones, but the low cost models look very similar from one brand to the next. A lot of the sets I see advertised on Amazon have 3/4” shanks though.
