Part of my reason for looking at a new tool is that I just wrapped up a six leg sideboard project that entailed 25 mortise and tenon joints. I tested several different methods for cutting the joinery, and finally settled on the tenoning jig for the table saw, and drill press/mortising chisel for the mortises. I did hand cut a few tenons, but this proved to be about half the speed of machine cutting them. But the idea of the FMT doing both operations at the same time, and making the process completely repeatable is very appealing to me. My guess is I probably could have shaved a good day or two of work off this last project.
