TSM-12 | Castle | Pocket Hole Machines

  • Power:
    110V 1PH 2HP 15AMPS
  • Description

    The TSM-12 benchtop pocket cutter machine is designed very similarly to Castle’s original pocket cutter. These machines have an amazingly long service life, and on the rare occasion when one becomes available in the used tool market, it tends to sell quickly and at a price that’s close to the current MSRP. The TSM-12 routs the 6 degree, low-angle Castle Pocket with no tear out in less than 2 seconds. The superior low screw angle minimizes joint shift while providing strong, stable joints. The TSM-12 uses standard 110V electric, and does not require any shop air, so it’s ideal for jobsites, small shops, or the weekend woodworker.  Each TSM-12 is equipped with a Bosch 1617 Router with a 3/8” three-flute solid carbide router bit for cutting the pocket and a Bosch Colt Router with a 9/64” premium drill bit for drilling the pilot hole. The TSM-12 requires minimal set-up, so you’ll quickly be creating Castle quality with every pocket you cut.
