I have used a plunge router with a home jig to center the bit in the past. But recently I bought a General bench top mortiser. I am now working on a large picture frame with mitered corners. The General can cut the slot up to 30 degrees from normal, but cannot do an angled cut that will give me a slot and a tenon that is 90 degrees to the face of the miter. So the question is, do the mortises need to be at 90 degrees to the face of the frame miter?
