Optional Mareko Deep Platen Upgrade
The Mareko Deep Platen is a combination of a flat platen, 4” contact wheel, and slack belt attachment. It was designed by knifemaker Mareko Maumasi to provide maximum value and efficiency as it minimizes tool changes. The extra depth allows the user to work both sides of the platen without the tool arm interfering with the work. This is particularly important when removing stock and when contouring handles. This platen is a great alternative and cost reduction to having a dedicated flat platen and a contact wheel.
Optional Adjustable Tool Rest Upgrade
The adjustable tool rest has been designed for maximum tilting in both directions as well as height adjustment. It is great for cutting false edges, bevels, clip points, octagonal handles, and fullers with our fullering tool. The tool rest is constructed of 5/16 and 3/8 thick plate steel to ensure durability and stability. The three handle design was chosen to eliminate accidental rotation typically observed with other adjustable tool rest designs that use a round bars and set screws for adjustment. The adjustment handles also allow full adjustment without the need of tools for ease of use and maximum efficiency.
NO welding is required for assembly. Chassis arrives unpainted.
