Hi. I am looking to get a Wadkin LM borer and was wondering if a mortice chisel could be used as well as a chuck? Any info on this machine would be really helpful.

Kind regards
Dan

Hi,

what are you using it for? I ask because we have just aquired a Wadkin LQ as part of a package and are wondering what to do with it.

regards,

Colin

Hi Collin. I plan on using it like a pillar drill, but for forming mortices etc as well as boring, possibly sanding material to thickness with a drum sander. Thinking of wiring up an inverter with it to vary the speed if possible? Thanks for the links Mark - really helpful, great restoration project there!

Dan.
