CASTLE USA | TSM-12 Benchtop Pocket Cutter

Routs the 6 degree, low-angle Castle Pocket with no tear out in less than 2 seconds.

The Castle USA TSM-12 Benchtop Pocket Cutter routs the 6 degree, low-angle Castle Pocket with no tear out in less than 2 seconds. The superior low screw angle minimizes joint shift while providing strong, stable joints. Because the TSM-12 uses standard 110V electric, and does not require any shop air, it’s ideal for jobsites, small shops, or the weekend woodworker.  Each TSM-12 is equipped with a Bosch 1617 Router with a 3/8” three-flute solid carbide router bit for cutting the pocket and a Bosch Colt Router with a 9/64” premium drill bit for drilling the pilot hole. The TSM-12 comes ready-to-go and delivers Castle quality with every pocket it cuts.
