Northwest Tenon Cutters
Tenon Cutters the tool that cuts tenons on the ends of your rails and
spindles. For stair rails, use the 3" length. Requires use of ½" or ¾" drill,
depending on size of cutter. Two high carbon steel blades flare
the material end about 60°. The two smallest sizes come
with ½" shafts; the other sizes come with ¾" shafts. The
recommendation is to use a ¾" electric drill to power the
1½", 2", and 2½" tenon cutters because the drill should have
a maximum RPM of 500 for both safety and limiting tool
overload. Made of cast aluminum.

Operating Instructions
Tenon Cutter System
The combination of
the Drill Carriage and
Manual Clamp(s)
makes for hassle
free alignment and
cutting of tenons,
especially if you are
cutting numerous
spindles for railings
or for multipiece furniture production. You can add as many
clamps as you would like to your setup, but for most applications one clamp is all that is really necessary. The Drill Carriage
holds the drill in place on a slide-rail frame. The drill is manually pushed or slid onto the end of the clamped stock, cutting
the tenon. The self-centering Manual Clamp locks into the Drill
Carriage for maximum support. Note: The Drill Carriage is
custom designed to work with the Milwaukee ¾" Drill and is
NOT guaranteed to work with other drills.

Never hold the material with hands and push into tenon cutter.
The Tenon Cutter is designed to be used with a drill motor or drill
press with the appropriate size chuck for the tool. It is not recommended to be connected to any other type motor or driving
device. The maximum operating RPM is 500.
The material being cut should be clamped in a vise or other
appropriate clamping device and the cutter pushed onto the wood.
Never hold the material in hands and push into tenon cutter.
Always keep the cutter blades sharp for the tool to work properly. If
sharpening is necessary, use a fine stone as you would on a knife or
wood chisel. Never use a grinder or the blades will be damaged.
When reinstalling the blades, do not over tighten the retaining screws or you may strip the threads in the housing. Check
the screws from time to time to see that they do not loosen. It is
advisable to put a piece of wood dowel (the proper size) into the
tenon pocket for the blade tips to seat against so when the dowel
is turned or pulled out the blade tips scratch it to assure a proper
diameter tenon finish. The better you set up the blades, the better
the tool will perform.
The drive shaft is adjustable to get a short or long tenon. Using
a metal ruler; measure from the blade tip to the end of the driveshaft to get the desired length. Wood material should be clean and
the ends cut off squarely.
If operating with a drill motor, hold onto it firmly to counter
act the torque effect of the tenon cutter. You must aim the tool
straight onto the material to get a straight tenon. A little practice
will make a perfect tenon nearly every time. Do not use excessive pressure to force tool onto material. It should almost self
feed onto material. Excessive pressure or chattering can damage
the tool and usually means the blades need to be sharpened. The
sharper the blades, the better.
Always wear safety glasses. Never allow clothing or other objects
to touch the tool while in operation. Always keep hands clear.
Never touch the tool while in operation.
When using very dry material, it may be necessary to apply a
little water to the work place by dipping it in a bucket or spraying
with a squirt bottle to avoid a dry screech or chatter.
