So, I’m planning on building a new project that is going to involve more than a few mortises. It got me to thinking about the sheer number of ways you can cut a mortise.

Over at my blog, this week’s poll is all about how you cut mortises. Sure, I might be fishing for a new tool. So, by your vote, I’ll be able to influence my wife that considering a new tool purchase is a good idea!

Thanks for voting!

I voted but I really like the plasma rifle option.

Do you prefer the red or blue plasma beam?

Do you need the laser cannon before you get the plasma rifle? I’d like to know cause I’m on a budget.

You guys have it all backwards.. the laser cannon is the industrial sized version of the phased plasma rifle. Shesh! ;-)

You could just dump them both and go for a phaser. Those particle beams make a much better and
cleaner cut!

I didn’t know we could include our phasers here. But I generally leave mine on stun.

(You will have to excuse me I have been posting too long today).

Live long and prosper.

I have found that for pure “cutting” I prefer to use my homemade Lightsaber. I find that it does not burn or chipout.

And the only color I use is Blue.

Its actually green, but he’s color blind.

I’m old school… I like Flash Gordon Laser Gun….it makes a cool sound when it goes off and it sends sparks flying all over…ok maybe thats not such a good idea in a woodshop. I have had a hard time finding batteries for it lately.
