Work is positioned on the rolling table against an end stop and a fence, and is secured by a cam action lever.
Its end is then passed between 2 vertically mounted cutter heads which machine the top and bottom cheeks of the tenon.
The tenon width is set by raising or lowering the top motor,and its position on the timber by raising or lowering the two motors in tandem.
Variations in shoulder length are set using the rule on the end stop and staggered tenons are achieved by simple handwheel adjustment of the top motor, with digital counters to help the measurements.
Each cutting head has provision for profile knives to enable the cross section of the components being jointed to be matched.
The standard scribing head allows many different configurations of tenons to be achieved.
