A simple drill can be used to make uneven, rounded holes in a piece of wood or similar material. But what can you do if you need to create a straight-edged square or rectangular hole? These holes are often necessary if you need to fit two pieces of material together very precisely. Luckily, you can easily create them using a Bench Morticer. These devices use a hollow chisel with a drill bit at the centre to create neat holes quickly and cleanly.
The drill bit removes most of the material from the spot where the hole needs to be. The chisel simultaneously removes material from the edges of the hole and ensures that its edges are perfectly neat. Bench morticers are large, sturdy machines that can be mounted on the floor or other stable surfaces. You don’t have to wield it like a handheld either, which means it’s easy to line up the material that needs to be cut with the chisel and drill bit. Browse our range of bench morticers today.
