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.

Slack attachment 

The Slack Grinding Attachment is highly versatile in shaping many different contours. This can be compared to a rotary platen in functionality.

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. 

Dual Axis Tracking System 

The Dual Axis tracking system introducing toe tracking to our already existing chamber tracking to create an easy to track and easy to fine tune to get the belt exactly where you want it. This tracking system also works great with the belt in reverse.
