Shop Fox W1671 Mortising Machine
3/4 HP Motor
We designed this Mortising Machine to address all the frustrations we found in other models on the market. We’ve added features like a 1/2 inch drill chuck, a quick-setting handle, an adjustable depth stop and a reliable rack and pinion elevation system. Combined with a 3/4 H.P. motor, a safety switch with removable key and a cord set, the Shop Fox Mortising Machine will give years of satisfying use.

Dual Access Doors
With doors on both sides of the headstock, the 1/2 inch JT #2 chuck is easily accessed for quick chisel changes. This mortising machine accepts chisels with shank sizes of 5/8 or 3/4 inch shanks.
The 3/4 HP totally enclosed fan-cooled motor features an aluminum-finned housing for long cool-running operation. The spindle turns at 3450 RPM, allowing you to power through a range of both hard & soft woods with ease. This high-speed direct drive operation allows for faster mortises so the cutter is in contact with the wood for shorter periods of time with less heat build-up. This prevents wood burning and keeps your bits and cutters sharper, longer.
Extra Long Handle
The extra-long steel handle easily adjusts to six different indexed positions to provide leverage throughout the full 9 inches of head travel. It is offset to put your wrist in a comfortable position for maximum power and control.

For off the bench operations
If you need to mortise larger stock and require extra height and depth capacity, it’s no problem with this mortiser’s unique swiveling base feature. This set-up is done in a few easy steps and allows easy off the bench operations and opens new possibilities for custom mortises.
Heavy Duty Fence, Table and Hold Down
The heavy cast iron base features a 6 x 16 inch table for solid work support and stability. The heavy-duty fence and cast iron hold-down eliminate unwanted wood movement and the potential for ‘stuck-chisels’, a common issue when trying to mortise on non-dedicated machines, like drill presses.
The W1671 includes a 1/2 inch chisel. Model D2845 4 pc. 1/4″ – 1/2″ Mortising Chisel Set is available as an optional accessory.
