Topic tags/keywords: joinery tenons angle tenons dovetail jig duplicator high speed cutter 3d 3-axis

Decided to sell this joinery machine I picked up on an auction.
It seems to work great and I didn’t have to clean it up much short of brushing off some sawdust.

I have it on ebay for $600 plus $225 shipping bc I was estimating worse case to package as oversized.
I always under estimate the shipping so I went way over on the farthest zone.
To LJs I would sell it for $500 plus whatever the shipping cost would be depending on how far out you live from California in Orange County. You can pick it up and try it out here first if you are local.
OR wouldn’t mind a comparable trade. I have a grip of sanders but would love an awesome sander. Need a variable speed polisher for metal. Sharpening stones, machines. Love adhesives, resins, scrapers, powercarving…
I’m open to a lot of trades.
My number is 760-412-2337 text or call. EMaIl works also tHrough LJ

Heres some info from who seems to be the company who made it and sells it.

With complete, three dimensional flexibility, the Wirth Machine can cut precise tenons, angle tenons, dovetails or even duplicate carved shapes the same as or better than machines costing thousands of dollars more. The basic concept is amazing simple – a spindle that duplicates the movement of a stylus against a template plus a sliding table:

Precision metal table moves back-and-forth and left-and-right along special V-shaped steel tracks.
High speed cutter can be fixed in one position, for boring, or moved up and down, freehand or guided by a template.

To make a tenon fix the tenon template to the aluminum plate on top, use the fast-action clamp to hold the wood onto the table, then guide the stylus along the template while the cutter duplicates the tenon in the wood, in seconds!
To cut the matching mortise lock the power unit into position, set the table’s adjustable side and back stops and using the handle on the table guide the wood against the spinning spindle.
For dovetails two templates are used – one for cutting one side of the joint and the second for the other half.
The Wirth Machine Package includes the basic machine, motor, switch, 1/2” collet, hold down clamp, 3/8” HSS spiral bit (95-861), 3/4” HSS spiral tenon cutter (95-864), 3/8” x 2” tenon template (95-806), 3/4” roller bearing stylus follower, 1/4” stylus and 1/2” stylus rod.

Motor – 1-1/2HP, 3,450RPM, TEFC, 115/230V, 1PH.
On/Off Switch – Heavy duty toggle with manual overload.
Spindle Speed – 20,000 RPM. Ball bearings and special high speed flat drive belt for smoother performance. 6” vertical travel.
Table – 17-1/2” x 12”. 6” in/out travel; 12” left/right travel.
Maximum Cut Depth – Limited by bit extension beyond collet or 6”, whichever is less.
Maximum Tenon Size – 5”H x 10”W.
Accuracy – Less than 0.003” stylus-to-spindle movement. Less than 0.005” table motion deviation from straight line over full travel. Less than 0.010” typical overall duplication deviation.
Net Weight – 140 lbs.
Shipping Weight – 180 lbs.

Thanks in advance, Kati

I was having a serious moment (this is rare and usually doesnt happen) when I checked my email and read Mark’s post notifier message. Thanks for taking the time to reply, changed my mood and that’s so appreciated.
I always regret selling anything having to do with cutting through wood at high speeds efficiently…
On the upside of it, the guy who bought it from me told me a lot of great info on the mirka ceros which I am looking forward to buying shortly and he has a use for the Wirth so I’m glad to always read good reviews on it

Glad it helped perk you up. It would be great if you could post pictures of the Mirka Ceros when you get it.
