Hoffman MU2-P Dovetail Routing Machine
The MU2-P pneumatically controlled dovetail routing machine to rout a single dovetail keyway with each machining cycle. Heavy cast-aluminum construction with large table surface, precision linear bearings and steel motor carriage. For Dovetail Key sizes W-1, W-2, W-3 and W-4 (with optional larger motor).
This pneumatically controlled dovetail routing machine is the more automated version of the MU2. Aside from the same attributes in terms of design and built quality, the machine features two pneumactic cylinders and a pneumatic foot pedal. One short stroke cylinder is used to clamp the material the instant the foot pedal is pressed, whil a second, larger cylinder is used to move the router carriage up and down. The main benefits compared to a manual machine are faster and more comfortable operation, more consistent results due to set routing ffed rates and the fact that both hand can remain on the material during the routing sequence.
