Hey Jonah
My experience with a drill press attachment was any thing but good . The mortising attachment would keep coming loose. it takes a fair amount of pressure to mortise and I think it’s difficult for a bolt on attachment to hold up to that. I think I’ve seen Mortisers for around $ 175 at ether or both Harbor Freight or Grizzly . I don’t have experience with either one of those brands but maybe others hear have. Even though there more expensive they work better in my experience.
