Mortise Chisel Bit 1/2"
Mortise Chisel Bit 1/2"

The bit removes most of the material, and the chisel squares up the sides, allowing you to cut precise 1/2” mortises for mortise-and-tenon joints. Fits the Jet Benchtop Mortising Machine (#81421, sold separately). Recommended for use with mortise machines, however, does not work with Delta 14-651.

(1) 1/2" (12.7mm) Mortise Chisel Bit

Works Great
Use it on a 1948 delta drill press with a 1940s mortise adapter at the museum I volunteer . We're restoring a 1913 caboose and use it help speed the progress.

Didn't use it I didn't know it needs an adapter on my drill press probably would have worked great! !!

Worked great
Never used before, always hired it out. Hickory was used on the railings and foot board, glad I ordered two as I felt they dulled pretty quick. Probably wouldn't have with a softer wood.

needed bits for my old oliver mortiser, the foot pedal one. A piece of equipment my father used at the same high school I went to and used then we had an opportunity to purchase it. Bits fit and work fine.

After waiting patiently for 3 months for the back-ordered Mortise Chisel to ship, another online woodworking store cancelled my order without notifying me.
Daniel D on Apr 22, 2016
I cut a lot of mortise and tensions in my projects, to me its the best way to go. I finally bought a Jet mortising machine, what a great way to replace using a drill press or router with mallet and chsiel. Needed an extra chsiel as another one would dull. Keeps me on cutting then will resharpen both. Seems a good quality, time will tell.

Decent bits just wish the state sharper longer. But that's just like anything else got to keep sharp tools

How does the chisel bit work and will it work in a drill press?
Keith L on Apr 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The bit works great but will not work in a drill press unless you have a special mortise attachment installed. For example, I have a Delta bench top drill press where I bought the attachment from Amazon for 75.00. I can now use any size mortise bit. It is much cheaper than buying an actual mortising machine which can cost as much as 350.00 on up. Hope this answers your question.
I have an old craftsman mortise machine. I need a 5/8 inch shank (or is it called a collar ) for it to work. Will this work in my craftsman?
Scott P on Dec 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The collar is the dimension that fits in your machine.
What is the chisel cut length? I need to cut 3" mortise depth
Eric A on Aug 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The cutting length is about 2-7/8" long
will this chisel fit a delta 14-651 machine does it have a 3/4" collar?
paul o on Apr 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: NO it does not have a 3/4" collar. It is 5/8" my husband is a machinest and will be making a 3/4" bushing. He also said that you should be able to buy stock bushing at any berring supply house. Hope this helps.
Is it Compatible with the Shopsmith?
Steve E on Jun 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Steve, the mortise bit “sorta” is compatible with the Shopsmith. My Shopsmith is an ER 10, the earliest model. I was able to get it to work and cut some mortises but would have problems with the drill bit starting to slip in the mortise housing. There is very little room to both the mortise housing to fit above the collar and then get the drill bit far enough into the chuck to hold securely. It gets a little frustrating to have to keep going back to realign everything. If you have one of the later model Shopsmiths it might work better but I wouldn’t know. Happy to answer any other questions if I can be of help.
