1985 MAKA SM7 Mortising machine
After 30 years of making mortisers Maka totally re-designed the small shop SM series mortising machine. They pulled out all the stops on this model and built what I believe is the finest mortising machine ever made! This machine is a beautiful piece of engineering from the German company that set the standard for mortisers. This machine is so well designed and built that there is simply nothing that comes close. These machines replaced the SM6 models that were the mainstay for 20 years. The new SM7 series were so expensive to manufacture that they were only made for a few years then replaced with the cheaper SM8 model. These machines are very hard to come by, the only ones that I have seen are the few machines that I have bought in from Germany myself.
