I want to start doing different joinery. Right now I just use the router table and nails with glue, not the best for structure needed items or hiding nails holes.

I came across the Jessem Doweling Jig and cant decide on the 8350 or 8300 Paralign OR the Dowelmax. All are around the same $$ if include all the drill guides.

I then discovered MLCS’s Horizontal router table to make mortises and tenons.

Lastly, I came across a used Jet Mortiser Machine for $100. Only thing that worries me is mortising the sides of say a 6” board, how to position the mortiser machine.

Out of those, which would be best? If that’s an easy question to answer. The MLSC Horizontal table also has a XY sliding piece, I’d just have to buy another Bosch router fixed base.
