Maka fine German made mortising machines. These machine are made for cutting mortises in solidwood. They are primarily for smaller mortises in pieces like furniture, windows cabinet door etc.

They cut very clean precise mortises in a whole range of shapes and sizes. They will cut in all woods and even in end grain.

This model of machine was manufactured during the 70's and 80's and can have many worn-out broken or missing parts so I generally strip them and rebuild them.

This 1980 machine was completely stripped and rebuilt with new bearings in the motor and oscillating unit, the feed unit was stripped cleaned and all of the O-rings, Oil Seals and Rod Wipers have been replaced.

 

.*Issues with these machines;

 Most all of the machines will have some galling on the shafts of the feed system. Generally I would polish the shafts and hone the casting, flush and re-grease them. Which has been done with this machine. Some minor galling is visible on the shafts does it not affect the operation,

 

The machine is in Excellent working condition, and cuts clean and precise.
