I recently purchased a Powermatic PM701 Benchtop Deluxe Mortiser. It’s a sweet machine that sure beats making mortises by hand…but, the metal table is short for furniture/cabinet pieces. I saw an idea in the May 2012 Wood Magazine that I thought was the answer. It’s basically two elevated wings that keep the pieces level while cutting. There are two flip stops that glide over a T-track. The setup makes repeatability a no brainer. I’ve used it already on two pair of cabinet doors and like it a lot. It’s inexpensive and easy to construct and can either be installed permanently or as a temporary jig. -
