For Sale: Multico Morticer

3 phase Multico Morticer, all as it should be. Comes with the one 3/8 chisel. Just rewired it before I decided I don't have room for it :|. Ex educational before my limited use. Probably one of the best little morticers ever made. http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp94/jhwbigley/2014-07-31190900_zp...

A bearing is quicker to set up than a ring fence.

A ring fence is more versatile due to its adjustable nature and most already incorporate some sort of guarding.
