Chain Mortiser

Quick Overview

chain mortiser is one of those cast iron woodworking machines from the days before globalisation.

A chain mortiser is another approach for making a "square hole", mortise. A chain mortiser works a lot like a chain saw in that it is plunged into the wood. But unlike a chain saw, the blade is straight, and the chain is designed to make a wider cut with a very square profile.

The advantage of a chain mortiser over other types of mortisers is that it can remove material quite fast, and it can plunge very deep. For this reason, portable chain mortisers are often used for post and beam building construction. This chain mortiser is a stationary tool designed to be used in a woodworking shop.
