I have their older models (large and small) – I think it’s a good setup IF you only have a handheld drill, and no other tools in your disposal. however, a drill is not really meant to be used as a mortiser (where force is applied sideways and not vertical) as do drill bits. a better solution is to setup a mortising jig with a router for speed, or use chisels. if you don’t have a router or chisels, but do have a drill and have a project or 2 that require mortising – this would be a good option.
