PM 719T Mortiser Question


Recommended Posts

Hey all I am finally getting around to setting up my mortiser and have a question regarding the side to side and up/ down movements. So I have it pretty much dialed in and I have sharpened the chisels and bits but the up/down and side to side motions are really really stiff, front to back is great.


Any thoughts on how to loosen it up a bit?

Here are some pics of the DT keyways and the gears

Is there a set screw that is used to tighten the pressure? If I’m not mistaken without looking I believe the rikon has a set screw that rubs on the dovetail. Just a thought 

Agreed. I know they can be adjusted just need to determine how ?
