I need to put slots (through mortises) in basswood rails which are anywhere from 18” to 108” long, 3/4 thick, and 1 1/2 to 5 1/2 wide. Slots are 1/4”x 3”. 2 to 4 per rail. The slots are located by the ends and occasionally in the center if the rail is long. They need to be repeatable and done 20+ an hour. This is in a production environment. I was hoping a woodrat might work, but doesn’t seem like it will.
In essence, I need to cut a bunch of through mortises quickly and somewhat precisely in a way that is repeatable and straightforward.
