Felder USA - Felder- FD 250 Slot Mortiser
On industrial slot mortisers, the head moves, not the table, and the action is smoother. Also, there are better clamping options and stops. The Felder has a clever fence that locks onto the table at 45º and 90º.
If you enjoy working with top-end machinery, European manufacturers offer heavy-duty slot mortisers for $3,000 and up. With a larger machine like the Felder FD 250, you encounter a new world of fit, finish, smooth operation, and well-engineered stops and clamps that make the most complex mortises simple, accurate, and repeatable. The Felder’s table is larger and heavier than that of the Rojek, and a model is available that tilts on cast-iron trunnions for regular and compound angles. This mortiser is available for about $3,600. www.felderusa.com.
