THE J.A. FAY & EGAN COMPANY MORTICEING MACHINE
The following extras apply both to our large and small Foot Machines:
The Double Chisel for Sash Work.—It has two edges, with a V shape between. It is pressed into
the sash-bar a little more than half-way through, when the bar is turned, and. by an impression
on the opposite side, the mortise is made.
The Blind-slat Chisel is used for making the groove for the blind-slat in the stile, the length of
which being less than the width of the stile, and corresponding with the width of the slat. The
slat enters this groove, and is by it confined in its place without mouldings or brads. These
chisels we make with one, two, or three pair of cutters, of such length and thickness as may be
wanted.
The Pin-tool and Pointer makes both hard and soft wood pins for sash, blinds, doors, &c.,
varying in size from a quarter to three-eighths of an inch. Pine pins are pointed in the pointer by
one blow from a hammer.
Standard Rolls, for door-stiles and larger work, are made of play into a small iron frame, from
which extends a bolt which is passed through a slot in an upright joist, about three and a half
inches square, and by a thumb-nut on the end of the bolt the iron frame is confined to the
upright, at an elevation corresponding with the level of the rest of the machine on which the
piece to be mortised is placed, and by these rolls is easily moved as the chisel cuts away.
The Extra Rest, to mortise through from one side is confined to the main rest by a single bolt,
and has a piece of very hard wood, standing endwise, which receives the edge of the chisel after
it has passed through the blind-stile. This rest is made to move endwise on the main rest, so that
when one place becomes worn by the long-continued action of the edge of the chisel, it is
changed to the extent of the width of the endwise piece. The mortising of blind-stiles is the most
suitable work to be done in this way.
Staple-punch for Blind-rods and Slats.—This tool is inserted in the machine in place of the
chisel, and by the pressure of the foot two holes are made for the small staple.

COMPANY
MORTICEING
MACHINE from
the Stagecoach
stop second
auction that was  
hidden away and
almost passed
over, then
everyone wanted
it. It figures i notice
some  junk and
suddenly it has
value and every  
antique dealer
wants it. it is
missing some
wood  base pieces
and badly rusted
but very early as it
has all hand forged
bolts and forged
and machined
wrought iron  
pieces.
