Often the question is, which mortising machine? and that refers to the vertical ones which are common, have no footprint (usually), and do a passable job. However, they have limitations which can usually be covered by a horizontal machine.
Horizontal (or “slot”) mortisers can have a pretty big footprint and an intimidating, gangly presence in a small shop.
Have you faced the possibility of owning one or the other, and what is the result?
