Anchor to Specifications and Description


Being able to get square cuts into wood is essential for all kinds of joint making. Make holes with ease with the Jet 1/2-Inch Benchtop Mortising Drill. This woodworking drill can be used either by itself on a table or on a dedicated mortising stand. When you're ready to start drilling, just use the handle on the side to pull the drill down. This handle can be adjusted to different positions, allowing you to set it in the way that's most comfortable for you. Some projects will call for you to drill all the way through the material, and some will only need you to drill partway. Because of this, the mortiser has a depth stop. With it, you can set it so that it'll only drill down to a certain length. That can be especially useful if you want to make a long, rectangular cut into a piece of wood, since you can just make repeated cuts side by side to one another. Just as different projects call for different depths, some will call for different drill bits. This benchtop mortising drill can hold bits up to 3/8 inches in size. On the side of the mortiser are 2 hinged doors that make it simple to reach the drill chuck when you want to switch things up. Powered by a 0.5 horsepower motor, the Jet 1/2-Inch Benchtop Mortising Drill offers a balance between power and convenience for the professional and hobbyist woodworker.
