5/8" Hollow Chisel Mortiser Steel City 40-510S1

Steel City

In cabinetmaking, there are several types of assembly and the mortise-tenon type is probably the best known and the most used. Among this type of assembly, the traditional square mortise-tenon is certainly the most popular because it has been proven and does not require any fancy equipment: a rule, a chisel, a mallet and time.

Of course, if you have no time left, a faster solution could be a tenoning jig on your table saw and a small benchtop mortiser. Steel City is offering its 5/8" hollow chisel mortiser for benchtop which will meet your needs and your budget.
