Our quality dowel and tenon cutters come from FAMAG, Germany and FISCH, Austria. The VERITAS tenon cutters are a great choise when working with green wood.
For anyone building rustic furniture, the Veritas aluminum-body tenon cutters will cut smooth, perfect tenons with radiused shoulders. Cutters are designed to run vibration-free while being driven by an electric drill, yet still yield the same accuracy when used with a hand brace. The smaller tenon cutters (5/8 to 1 in.) can be used in a hand brace with our Tenon cutter Brace Adaptor. The anodized body has been balanced to eliminate vibration and an integral level vial makes in-line cutting more accurate. Enlargement
To increase safety, the back end of the blade is contoured to avoid anything extending beyond the revolving aluminum body. The body has a built-in honing guide for easy sharpening of blades on a drill-press mounted drum sander (see right). The blade is adjustable to cut the exact size of tenon required in both dry and green wood.
To make simple, fast work of mortise-and-tenon joinery, this system uses power tenon cutters and matching countersinks to produce strong flush-fitting joints in round or dimensioned stock. The cutters produce a symmetrical tenon with a 60В° tapered shoulder that fits neatly in a countersunk socket. The main blade shapes the tenon and shoulder, while a finishing blade smoothes the tenon to a consistent diameter and cuts a slight relief at the base of the shoulder to ensure it seats flush. The finishing blade’s cutting depth is adjustable, so you can fine-tune the tenon diameter for close fit.
Cutting capacity for all sizes is 1-1/2″ greater than the tenon diameter. Sizes 5/8″ to 1″ cut 2″ long tenons (not including the tapered shoulder) and are for use in drills with a 3/8″ or larger chuck. Sizes 1-1/4″ to 2″ cut 3″ tenons and are for use in drills with a 1/2″ or larger chuck.
