I have a mortising machine and I have been disappointed with it. I just don’t get the clean cuts I want very conveniently.

When it comes to joinery we have lots of options these days. After much research, I opted for the Mortise Pal and that has become my preferred method of joinery. I also use pocket holes in some situations and dowels in other situations. The only time I use conventional mortise and tenon is when I want to do a through mortise.

If I had it to do over again, I would not bother with a mortising machine.
