Howdy Folks,

I’m considering a bench top mortising machine. Can any of you recommend some good brands?

Thanks folks.
Brandon W: the thread did help put things in perspective.
Wood magazine will be doing a tool test of bench top mortisers in there next issue.
I will probably wait but already I’m leaning toward the Powermatic.

Thanks again for the replies…

Check out General’s, I think it is the best if you are willing to pay the price.
