Milbury’s are ok, the small powermatic is better. A little heavier built from what I have seen. You are right about the larger tenon. The tooling can be had from Woodworker’s Tool works. They can grind the knives in the heads to fit the machine and save a lot of setup time. They are space eaters. Lots of bearings to deal with. I ran an old Houston single end machine for a while. It was sweet. No osha covers over any of the belts. Lots of slapping noises from the lacing on those belts. It was way over 100 years old and still cut like butter. Good luck on your machine. bob
