Interesting woodworking machines

On my last trip to Germany, I visited Kurt, who some years ago took over a defunct cabinetmaker shop. Some of his equipment is quite novel so I thought I'd share some photos of it with you.

Dovetailing machine

A very old-style, cast iron dovetail cutting machine. A refreshing change from the typical flimsy aluminum jig.

Slot mortising machine

A professional slot mortising machine with some interesting features

Chain mortiser

A heavy duty mortiser that works like a chainsaw!

Hoffman dovetailing system

A neat way to solve the miter alignment and clamping problem

Pull-push saw

A very innovative jobsite table saw.

Mafell cross cutting system

A very innovative variation on the typical "rail saw"

Interesting miter clamps
