If you need dedicated workhorse mortiser to produce mortises day in and day out, one of the best units I’ll recommend is this Powermatic 719T.

With that said, the following are some of the best mortisers we’ve reviewed and recommend for carpentry and furniture purposes. 1. JET JBM-5 1HP Benchtop Mortiser The razor sharp chains it comes with, capable of cutting at speeds of 1000 ft/min means you can make clean and accurate cuts with it all day without any trouble. For cutting small mortises, a normal drill bit can be used. However, for larger mortises, a common type of bit in modern mortisers is a Harry Watt square drill bit, in which a bit with a Reuleaux triangle cross section is allowed to "wobble" while it rotates within a square with rounded corners [ citation needed]. This type of bit removes all but the corners of the material to be removed, leaving very little to be cut by the chisel. the tool is not an Air Compressor/ Air Tool, a Battery/ Charger, an Accessory, or a Petrol or Production ToolThe chain is chrome-hardened and does not require lubrication before use. It has a max mortising depth of 5-7/8 inches which is quite large. What makes this tool so efficient is the chain that features sharp teeth to create clean, precise cuts at speeds up to 1000 feet per minute. Not only does Timberwolf Tools have the market cornered with the best price on the Makita 7104L Chain Mortiser (and no sales tax except for Illinois and Maine customers) but we are the only dealer able to customize the chain size for you, and the only ones with the special Hardwood Chain available. A mortiser or morticer is a specialized woodworking machine used to cut square or rectangular holes in a piece of lumber ( timber), such as a mortise in a mortise and tenon joint.

It comes in 120V and 240V depending on what you want. The chain bar is also available in 1.5 inches and 2.0 inches as per your specs. The Powermatic 719T is a stationary cabinet style workhorse designed to help any professional woodworker cut mortises efficiently in the workshop. I have never used a Mafell, and could have gone with one but I had read that the SP had a couple of small advantages over the Mafell. Chip clearing ability being one. Plus the distributer isn’t far from me.


If you want to cut mortises in large dense timber, such as when making timber frame construction or log home buildings, a chain mortiser is the best option to go for. Keep running the mortiser in-between plunges and let the machine run for a few seconds after mortising to bring cool air into the motor. The bit of the router is aligned with the work piece where the cut is needed, and using a system of levers, the router is moved to and fro through the cut, until the whole slot is complete. Health & Safety should be assessed on an individual basis. The advice given here should only be used as a guideline. It is the responsibility of the Employer and the Operators to ensure that they are competent and qualified to use the equipment and that they have taken the necessary safety precautions The square chisel mortiser (also called hollow chisel mortiser), similar to a drill press in many respects, combines the cutting of a four-sided chisel with the action of a drill bit in the center. The bit clears out most of the material to be removed, and the chisel ensures the edges are straight and clean. This device was invented in 1874 by Robert and Ralph Greenlee (founders of the Greenlee Company).

And please note: there is no such thing as a 12 or 12.7 Amp version of this tool! Makita dealers listing this are working with out-of-date information because Japan divides the wattage by 100V and North America uses 120V. The only thing that has changed on this tool in the last 30 years is the new silver color! It’s capable of using up to a ½ inch chisel bit, powered by a ½ HP induction motor, which makes it ideal to cut through both hard and softwood with ease. Add to this the cutter chain, a wrench for set up, a sharpener holder, and oil to keep it running smoothly, and you have one high-quality chain mortiser. The Greenlee Company still manufactures mortisers, as do a large number of other power tool manufacturers. It is a common tool in the woodshop of professional woodworkers, but because of its specialized nature, many amateur woodworkers would not make enough use of it to justify the moderately high cost and space this tool takes up in the woodshop. Some smaller and less expensive models, suitable for cutting only narrow mortises are available. What makes this device so handy is the long handle and smooth gear transmission that creates greater efficiency and speed when setting up and making the cuts you want.If you have a lot of mortises to cut for a wood workshop, getting a chain mortiser is the way to go. These machines are perfect for use in all types of conditions. The JET JBM-5 stands is one of the best benchtop square-chisel mortiser that will make your job easier as a carpenter or furniture maker. Square chisel mortising bits can also be fitted to normal drill presses using a mortising attachment.

The benchtop or square chisel mortiser is one of the most common power tool for cutting accurate mortises today.

Included in the kit is a cutter chain, a sharpening holder, a wrench to set it up and oil to get it running as smooth as possible. 5. Mafell LS 103Ec Chain Mortiser As with most JET products, the build quality of the JET JBM-5 is top-notch. It’s made with heavy duty cast iron and steel components, which makes it very stable when making cuts. 2. RIKON Power Tools Benchtop X/Y Mortiser Here’s a rule of tumb when cutting mortise and tenons. Always cut the mortise first and cut the tenon second.
