Swiss KSL 161 Chain Mortiser from

By: Timbertools  09-12-2011

Choice of 110V or 220V.

This mortiser is meant for in-the-field repairs, or for private builders.

Cross-grain mortising is rapid, saving time, leaving a cleaner mortise and perfect, perpendicular mortise ends, needing much less chiseling. 

The machine glides easily without clogging shafts or bushings.

With the new, more powerful Swiss-made "Suhner" motor, the machine is now available for 110V operation, with option for 220V. 

This new smaller version of the professional KSP 16 mortiser shares many of its popular successful features:

  • Ergonomic safety switch and handle
  • 1400 W motor
  • Hard-chromed and polished shafts on space-age Ertalite bushings
  • Side fence
  • Scribe plate for easy viewing and setting of position
  • Good chip ejection with safety guard on.




Machine includes a mortise chain-set of 2" size; 1-1/2" is optionally available on special order. Please call us at 1-800-350-8176.

LignaTool Dovetail Mortise and Tenon Template System

When you are milling into any wood, especially knotty material, it is possible for kick-back to knock an unsecured router off its path. The guide plate easily leads the router in any direction around the template until the tenon or mortise is completed. LIGNATOOL has an important safety feature that we have not seen in any competitive product. Router locks onto the guide plate, preventing kick-back if you hit a knot.
