Drill press mortising is a PAINFUL process. Even my cheapo HF mortiser is light years better than using a drill press for that task… Never done mortises with a router though. You’d either have to square up the mortises by hand, or round off the ends of all your tenons. Either process is time consuming compared to just cutting your mortises square with a dedicated mortiser. I guess if you don’t mind the set up time, and space is that much of an issue for you, just go with a drill press mortising attachment…

General Tool I believe has a new M&T router jig that is rumored to be a real winner. Might be worth checking out…
