Bomber, welcome to LJ’s as the others have said, don’t waste your time with the mortising attachment. It’s a royal PITA to set up and it does not work so great. I found a set for almost nothing at a garage sale and never used more than twice. You’ve got the DP, get good forstner bits and 2 or 3 nice chisels. With practice you’ll find it’s faster and very satisfying to knock them out yourself. Go to the router as another option, if I ever run across a mortising machine on Cl for around $100 (Not a HF one) I might be tempted but from one hobbyist to another a dedicated machine only really does one task, a fairly good set of Narex chisels will be money much better spent for your future projects..

-- I've decided 1 mistake is really 2 opportunities to learn.. learn how to fix it... and learn how to not repeat it
