Here’s another mortising jig I saw versions of in various places on the web and decided to make. 75% of the design is from a magazine article I have somewhere in my shop. When I find the clipping I’ll post the credits below since that seems to be the mode of operation around these parts.
The plate with the hold down on it can be reversed to mortise a mitre cut. It can also be placed vertically.
The plate behind it is loaded with t nuts so I can mount and mortise any shaped object I want.
I jokingly call it the Lee Mortising Jig because my name is Lee, but there is also a very expensive product (as many of you know) called the Leigh Mortise and Tenon Jig, which I’d never buy. Why? Because for the price of the FMT model I’m half way to a Domino Joiner and can get just as strong a joint in less time.
Blah, blah, blah. Thanks for looking at my project. 007lab is very tired from working outside all day on a lift 80’ in the air. Zzzzzzzzzz
