Take a look at this sleek mortising machine! It is light enough to be easily moved around the shop, yet still maintain rigidity for repeatable precision mortises. The double steel support columns are well suited for day to day operations, and they save on the encumbering weight of solid cast-iron construction. The multi-positional handle maximizes leverage and the 1/2 HP motor, easily adjustable depth stop, and smooth rack-and-pinion head travel will make easy work of mortises in even the hardest of wood types. This machine can also double as a drill press by quickly replacing the mortising chisel with the provided chuck and arbor.

I have used this mortising machine for two projects so far and it has done the job very nicely both times. So far Ive only used the 3/8 bit and chisel. I see no reason why the other two wont perform just as well. Great tool for the money.

good product 10/16/2018

I bought this mortis machine about a month ago to make some kitchen chairs. When I took it out of the box it would not work at all, I found the top cover for the fan on top of the motor was damaged and keeping the motor from turning, I removed the cover straightened it out and then it worked. The box it came in was not damaged so it was damaged before it was boxed up. I made one chair so far and the machine works great. I have not used it as a drill press yet so maybe later for that.

Great product 9/28/2018

Almost all my tools are grizzly and this is the same quality I would expect

Perfect Size 9/26/2018

I purchased this unit to be able to use it once and awhile. It's a perfect size for what I need an does not take up a large space when not in use.

Husband loves it!!! 8/15/2018

Purchased the Benchtop Hollow-Chisel Mortiser for my Husbands birthday and he is extremely happy! he has used it a few times already and is very pleased with the quality and workmanship of this machine.

I love it and think it is awesome 1/15/2018

I love working with wood and love this product, it goes along with my wonderful 35th anniversary bandsaw. Love them both


Easy to assemble, great size to easily move around the shop. Works like a charm. Made some 1/2" mortises thru Douglas fir with ease.


Bought this neat little machine recently and have only used it on one project so far. Although it was a large project being a sewing center for my wife, all mortise and tenon joints, so hundreds of individual cuts with Great results! I think this one is worth the money for sure.

So far, so good... 12/8/2017

Just slightly more complicated to assemble... The hold down leaves a little to be desired... The pull needs some serious lubrication - or something... Just a lot of friction... Otherwise, is a very heavy and solid piece of equipment... With some DIY modifications, I think it will be awesome... The bits that come with it are nice and sharp and seem to do a great job right out of the box... That said, this is my first mortiser, so I don't have anything else to compare... Overall a nice piece of machinery...

Good product for the price! 12/8/2017

I purchased this item about a month ago and have not had much time to use it. So far it has performed as advertised.

Great purpose built machine 10/7/2017

As a hand and chisel mortiser, this machine is a godsend. I can now make my projects stronger with multiple mortise and tenon joints..


well built and works great for what I need it for and for the money it was a great buy.


This is an excellent machine. Very easy to put together. Looking forward to many projects already underway

Nice unit, worked well for the job I bought it for. Looking forward to the next time I need some square holes. Grizzly is a great company to deal with, thanks guy So!

Bench top 6/1/2017

Bench top Mortiser is great but the chisels aren't worth what I paid the 2 smallest ones broke the first time I used them

Adrien L
As good as it looks 6/1/2017

Easy setup, normally informative instructions, good

Dyshron L

I love it, i just wish i didnt need an additional tool to flush the square drill bits

Larry P

This moderately priced mortising machine performed perfectly for the purpose I purchased it for. I needed square holes in the side bar of beehive frames to hang center bars in.
