Safety Speed Mfg. recently introduced the model SPM301 screw pocket machine with a cam-driven action for smooth cutting performance under complete mechanical control throughout the machine cycle, according to the company.
“The product is designed for any application where pocket-hole joinery can increase productivity or efficiency in joining operations in furniture or cabinetmaking,” product manager Shawn Larkin says.
The machine features a 2-1/4-hp router motor and mechanical linkage, allowing the pilot drill and router bit to cut at the same time, reducing cycle time without sacrificing quality of cut, the company explains.
The machine plugs into a standard 110-volt outlet and requires only 1 to 2 cfm of compressed air at 80 psi.
It also features an adjustable back fence and stop rail, an analog depth gauge and top-down access for quick bit changes and adjustments.
The compact machine measures 44” high, 22” wide and 26” deep. It ships at 350 lbs.
Model SPM301 is manufactured in the U.S. and sells for $5,299, according to Safety Speed .
