Template Copier

Monday, October 13th, 2014

The idea for this mortiser add-on has been running through my head for a few weeks now. I wasn’t sure how well it would work and I couldn’t resist trying out the idea any longer.




The templates are secured by the two bolts pictured above.  An aluminum stylus rides against the template as the mortiser is moved forward and back.  So far I am pleased with the results and I can see several practical uses for this add-on.  The add-on will not get in the way when I need to use it for a standard mortiser.  Yippeee!

H-Mortiser ‘Godzilla’ Modification

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

I can already tell that this is going to be one of those jigs that I continue to upgrade. I borrowed another design element from Woodgears and used his one-handed lever mechanism. What a huge improvement!

I still need to come up with a solution to keep sawdust from getting on the shafts in the X,Y tables. This needs more thought. If you have an idea please let me know. Thanks!
