M45 – Miter Machine

The M45 is our entry level miter, mortise, and tenon machine. One of our most popular wood cnc machines that features side pressure clamps to ensure the part is firmly against the side fence prior to clamping. This guarantees a perfect 45˚ miter every time. The M45 will produce 150-175 doors per shift.
