3 Half Lap Joint Machine Models From Ideal Machine
In January of 2023, Ideal Machine purchased the inventory and the manufacturing rights of the Newport Machine lineup from Crestfield Machine, formerly Hermance Machine Company.
There are only a few differences among the 3 different MH Half Lap Joint Machine models from Ideal. All 3 of the MH series machines are perfect for cutting Half Lap joints in wood, vinyl, and aluminum. These joints are most commonly used in SDL and TDL bars, window grills, and decorative cabinetry. Their general machinery specifications are all the same, the difference is that each unit offers one or two features that the unit before it in the lineup does not. These added features are all listed below.
MH-4 Half Lap Joint Machine
Manual Half Lap Model:
The operator must manually feed your raw materials.
MH-4E Half Lap Joint Machine
Automatic Half Lap Model:
The automatic material pusher is a standard feature.
MH-4ES Half Lap Joint Machine
Deluxe Half Lap Model:
Full servo operation is standard.
The angle saw for end cuts is an available option.
