I have a Wirth Machine which is essentially the same design but it has its own motor for the spindle whereas with the Matchmaker you supply a plunge router. It's kind of time consuming to change setups but other than that it's a great unit and well built. Be prepared to make special jigs to do anything other than making tenons or dovetails. I've never made a mortising hold down board for mine because I also have a slot mortiser. You could remove the hold-ins used for tenoning and end mortising if you want to do side mortising but I've never tried it.
