Get lightning fast dovetail joints—at scale.

Are you mass producing dovetail joints on workpieces up to 16-1/2 by 59 inches?

Once setup, this machine can create a dovetail joined box in under 40 seconds!

The motor is inverted so vertical workpieces are inserted/removed from above rather than below, which makes it easier, more efficient, and more ergonomic to operate.

Instead of cam-lock clamps, this machine features dual pneumatic clamps that are faster and easier to use. The air supply unit features a regulator, a filter, and a lubricator to maintain constant pressure.

Also, the cutter controls are micro-adjustable to give you complete control of dovetail fit.

This machine includes a 4-sided template for cutting 1", 1-1/2", 2", and 2-1/2" dovetails.

The W1805 manual was written by our U.S.-based Technical Documentation Department and is packed with useful information.

The H9388 replacement dovetail bits are available when your stock bits get dull.
