Mareko Deep Platen

The Mareko Deep Platen is a combination of a flat platen, 4” contact wheel, and slack belt attachment. It was designed by knifemaker Mareko Maumasi to provide maximum value and efficiency as it minimizes tool changes. The extra depth allows the user to work both sides of the platen without the tool arm interfering with the work. This is particularly important when removing stock and when contouring handles. This platen is a great alternative and cost reduction to having a dedicated flat platen and a contact wheel.

Adjustable Tool Rest

The adjustable tool rest has been designed for maximum tilting in both directions as well as height adjustment. It is great for cutting false edges, bevels, clip points, octagonal handles, and fullers with our fullering tool. The tool rest is constructed of 5/16 and 3/8 thick plate steel to ensure durability and stability. The three-handle design was chosen to eliminate accidental rotation typically observed with other adjustable tool rest designs that use a round bar and set screws for adjustment. The adjustment handles also allow full adjustment without the need of tools for ease of use and maximum efficiency.

Beveling Table

The Beveling table is designed to aid the grinding of flat and hollow bevels. It tilts from 2 to 45 degrees. It is 14” W x 10” D x ¼” thick with cutouts, allowing the user to hold thinner work with more control safely. It can be used on all Brodbeck Ironworks machines with the Flat Platen, Mareko Platen, and Large Contact wheels.

This attachment utilizes a sanding belt to drive a threaded arbor. This arbor is a 5/8-11 thread that is used for items such as wire wheels and buffing wheels. it comes with the wheel, arbor, mounting bracket, and hardware. It can be purchased as an attachment only to be used with the platen D plate or can be purchased with a Quick Change Accessory Arm. A variable-speed drive system is required for this attachment. All wheels used on the arbor are to be operated at their rated rpm.

Integral Bolster and Fullering Attachment:

The Brodbeck Integral Bolster and Fullering Attachment features 3 different roller sizes 5/8", 7/8", 1-1/8". They are easily swapped out without tools, and there are no adjustments needed. The platen is fixed in place and made of thick steel that will not warp with heat.

This attachment also doubles as a fullering tool. The rollers stick out past the holder so there is no interference with anything. It can be purchased as an attachment only to be used with the platen D plate or can be purchased with a Quick Change Accessory Arm. A variable speed drive system is required for this attachment. The 5/8 & 7/8 rollers are only rated to 20000 rpm.

Quick-Change Accessory Arm
