Hoffmann X-18 Machine Overview:

Entry-level, manually operated dovetail routing machine to rout a single dovetail keyway with each machining cycle.

For Dovetail Key sizes W-0, W-1, W-2 and W-3


The X18 manual dovetail routing machine is a lightweight, more portable model with an open base design. This machine does not require a compressed air supply.

Due to its limited routing height of 2 1/4” this machine is not suitable for joining most floater frames and shadow box moulding.


The keyway location is adjusted by positioning the guided center fence plate on the machine table; the keyway length (routing height) is adjusted by setting a height-stop rod to the desired setting.

Standard Features:

Hoffmann Dovetail Routing Machine, model X18, ready for operation, W-2 solid carbide router bit installed, standard 45 degree center fence plate and square stop, toolkit and manual.
