Questions & Answers

IS THERE A VICE THAT CAN GO ON IT

Asked by: BIG DOG
You could, but it would take some adapting to do it. To put a vise on it, and we are talking about a drill press vise, you would have to take the fence off of the machine, and there is no way you could use a mechanics' vise, as they are way too tall. So, you could use a drill press vise, or maybe a cross-feed vise made for a good sized floor model drill press, but again, you'd have to take the fence off of the machine, as well as the hold down fork and post which holds it. Now you could also put the extension in place (making the rack & pinion which moves the fence useless), and use your drill press vise for the fence and hold down.

max height of adjustment

i am looking to make a table with beard board ends, will this machine fit a 5 inch tall piece?
Asked by: prc61
With the 1/2" chisel & drill, the height above the table is 4.5" above the table. The smaller size drill/chisels increase that clearance as they get shorter as they get smaller. The 1/4" has about 6" clearance from the table. If you install the 2" riser add 2" to the clearance.

can you mortise in the end of boards? I need to mortise in the end of 7' long 2x6.

Asked by: knucklehead
I would not recommend it! You will need a Horizontal boring machine! A short cut to this is to mark the area, drill out majority of material and then use a wood chisel to square it up. This is of course the mortise you’re attempting is not very deep!

Customer Reviews

1/2 HP Bench Top Mortising Machine is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 33.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from I purchased this Mortising Machine over 3 months ago. I have a small custom funiture business. W... I purchased this Mortising Machine over 3 months ago. I have a small custom funiture business. While in the middle of a project with a tight schedule, the mortiser ( same model ) that I had owned for a long time, failed. So - ordered this one. When I began to work with the new one, I discovered that the fence was not square to the base. Since I was on a tight schedule with my project, I did not have the the time to go throught all the return procedures for a new machine. I removed the fence from the new machine and yes - it was not close to square. I took the fence off my old model, which was spot on square and put it on my new machine so I could complete the project on time. When I contacted Delta to see what we could do about some kind of compensation for the faulty machine - no help. I was refer to a "manager" of customer service who put me off for over two months with the sorriest of excuses I have ever heard. So - what I recieved from Delta was a usless machine that I had to fix to meet a deadline, and Delta, the company that makes tools for working people, could not understand and accomodate my problem. I sent pictures, made calls, wrote emails - nothin'. Delta, once a go to company for folks who wanted good tools - what a joke. I will not buy another Delta tool. I have never been treated so shabbily.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from not impressed Machine sets up fairly easily, but mine needed some extra attention with the mating surfaces that the head slides up and down on. They still don't line up exactly but it will suffice, almost no play now anyway. The post that the work piece holddown slides on is very rough and has to be pulled up on evenly to get it to move. In spite of what the instructions say, you will need an additional hex wrench for assembly. The lever that moves the head assembly only goes into position 2 ways. One position is too far back and the other is too far forward, making it awkward to operate. This is my first mortising machine but I certainly would have to think that other cheaper brands would be better than this one. Rather disappointed, Delta used to be an excellent brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great investment for someone wanting to perform repeated quality mortising This unit is solid, and extremely heavy. However, interestingly, it requires being secured to a work surface to perform safely on larger pieces of wood; the weight of the wood and tension from the machine can lead to awkward tilting during operation. The "shelf" on the rear of the machine seems misplaced, but it does not hinder operation. A better holder for the chuck key would have been a minor, yet very helpful improvement in overall engineering. The only complaint I have about the machine is the depth stopping mechanism; it tends to slip and does not connect squarely with the main column, which can lead to varying depth over time. Like me, you may need to really, really secure the depth stopper to have it work flawlessly. Also, the stopper itself needs to be secured in alignment with the holding screw properly; the flat face of the stopper should be aligned with the holding screw, else it may rotate and shift. I do not understand the way the stopper was designed for this device; the bent part of the non-square stopper contacts the top of the column, instead of the base of the device as one would expect. Overall, this machine is an incredible workhorse, and a great value for the price. I wonder about availability of chisel and bit replacement, but the included tools are very well performing. The motor has a tendency to buckle when being fed to quickly into a workpiece; stopping the unit and turning the chuck by hand seems to clear it up easily, but I am curious about why this is so often necessary for such a powerful motor. I would recommend this machine to anyone serious enough about quality mortises to consider purchase. A drill press bit cannot compare to the overall operation and performance of this superior piece of equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heads above other cheaper machines of the same type. Mortise and tenion work requires accuracy and this machine deliveres. I admit that I have done M&T work by hand before and it is really a choir to make it come out in an acceptable manner. I reviewed other machines and and this machine was the recommended model. Have never regretted its purchase and it is certainly accurate and easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is so efficient. I was apprehensive purchasing this machine because of lack of experience on my part. But this mortising tool is so good I will probably make so many more mortise and tenon joints. I am anxious to see how long this mortising tool will last.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great mortiser for the home workshop Very useful tool for the home woodworker to make mortise and tenon furniture. Fence takes a bit of time to adjust accurately, but improves as the user gets more used to using it. Great mortiser for the beginner-intermediate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely disappointed, housing was broken I selected the Delta over the Jet based on reviews and maybe a little on the cost. The package came and the box looked as though it had been properly handled. when I opened the box, everything seemed to be in one plastic bag. The box was so heavy I decided to unload the box piecemeal and carry to the basement for assembly. I picked up the housing and noticed the back was broken off. The package was shipped directly from Delta, and it looked to me as though the sent me an item that had been returned and not checked. I bought the Jet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great value Overall, a good product. I replaced my old one with a new one but found the new depth stop rod would not fit into the badly machined hole. I ground the rod down to fit nicely now. The work piece hold down seems to be of less material than the old one so I just swapped them and use the more substantial one. The 1/2 inch hollow chisel seemed to be not quite as sharp as my old one. Requires more pressure and has a little more tear out (even with a scrap piece under the work piece) than my old chisels. I find the 3/8 chisel works fine. This is the one I use most for mortise and tenons. Works great. Overall, this is still a great machine and I'd buy another if I needed. Has nice, large work base area.
