Dedicated Mortiser.

I cut tenons several ways, depending on the size, speed needed, and degree of accuracy.

If I need pure speed and the size is small…i use the band saw. Works great, but not very accurate.

If I have medium size and need for speed, but I also need some level of accuracy, I used the miter gauge and dado head with a sacrifice fence on the table saw.

If I have a lot of tenons to do and they are the same size, and accuracy is critical, I break out the tenoning jig and set it up!

All three serve their purpose.
