  • Wadkin MF chain length

    Hi all,

    I have recently purchased a wadkin MF and I'm having trouble figuring out the exact size or number of links I need. Also, can someone reccomend a company that is worth buying.

    Thanks!

    Lino, I only had one bar and chain come with my mortiser and it is an English brand-Monk Worsley & Monk. It has 69 links and is roughly 15 1/2" long when fitted to the bar. You could be a few links longer or shorter as the slot in the bar has adjustability. The bar is 9 1/2" long. Woodworkers Toolworks in Wisconsin sells new ones as does Advanced Machinery in the UK. Chain mortising tooling is PRICEY.

        I forgot to post a link to a thread on OWWM.

        There is some good advice on chain mortising in this thread, especially in the last few posts. Sax13 in that thread is actually one of the owners of Woodworkers Toolworks, I put a link in my previous post. I am still on the look out to buy used but there isn't a lot of complete sprocket, bar and chain sets that come up used in good condition. I think some of the new sets are now made in India. If you buy used, get all three items(chain, bar and sprocket). Getting a good deal on one item and searching elsewhere for the other two is a waste of time in my opinion.
