I have the Rikon with the X-Y table, and it’s not bad after dialing it in, with sharp/honed chisels. It’s nice to be able to lock the piece down and then start cutting the mortise with just a handwheel.

The X-Y table isn’t the most user friendly, as you have to readjust various settings based on the width and height of the piece using hex keys. But once you understand how it works it’s fairly quick to set up, and you can bash out mortises very fast.
