Birdsmouth Notcher

Introducing the Riehl Steel Birdsmouth Notcher – the ultimate solution for shed builders, both large and small, seeking an efficient and safe way to put a birdsmouth notch in their truss. Our machine is designed to make your truss construction process easier and faster while ensuring the highest degree of accuracy and precision.

At Riehl Steel, we understand that every shed builder has unique needs and requirements, and that’s why we designed our Birdsmouth Notcher to be highly adjustable and customizable. It can easily accommodate angles from 15 to 45 degrees, and can cut up to 1-5/8″ deep, making it perfect for a wide range of truss configurations.

Our Birdsmouth Notcher is powered by a 7.5 HP electric motor, which provides a smooth and reliable cutting experience every time. It can handle 2 boards at one time, and the boards are securely held in place by an air clamp, ensuring that your truss components stay in place while they are being notched. The cutting head features indexable knives, which means you can easily rotate the knives when they become dull, saving you both time and money in the long run.

Safety is our top priority, which is why our Birdsmouth Notcher is equipped with a built-in dust hood that has a 4″ port to collect sawdust, keeping your workspace clean and safe. Additionally, the angles are set by a hand crank and we’ve included 2 battery-powered digital readouts that allow you to precisely measure the angle and depth of cut, so you can achieve the exact notch you need with ease.
