This is my version of a slot mortise that I spent a lot of time designing with quick setup time in mind. no measuring required can be used completely with reference marks. I got inspiration for this mortise from the festool domino, and also matthias wandel’s slot mortise. the left and right stops also have reference marks for different width tenon stock.
i talk more as bout this and a demo on youtube here:

Very nice … I like the sliding wedges to adjust table height.

That’s very creative. Love the height adjustment and you’re right; it’s quick.
The reference pins are also very useful.

Watched the video. This thing is awesome. Great job. I think on the same lines as you do as far as ease of setup. Well designed tools that cooperate with you make working in the shop so much better. Sure, technically it may only save you 30 seconds each time, but that adds up, as do the mistakes if you do a complicated setup wrong.

I love the fact that it is small and portable. Easy to keep hidden out of the way until needed. Very nice.

Any problems with saw dust in the drawer slides? I worry about those small bearing getting gummed up.
