I started with a Delta benchtop, and it made a lot of mortises for me, but in the end didn’t hold up well.

I switched to a Jet floor model and have been very pleased. Even the same hollow chisels worked better in the floor model and cut cleaner holes.

If I were to limit myself to a benchtop unit, I’d be looking at the Powermatic and not much else.

Good luck in your search!
