Does anyone know where I can find a used Mortise Pal ? I was building a Farm house table and I was upgrading my jointery with a Mortise Pal. Unfortunately I borrowed a Mortise Pal from a good friend of mine and had a slight issue with the router coming in contact with the Mortise Pal

Not familiar with this tool .But maybe I can help with a sujestion . These things happen ,they just do . I have repaired my templates both aluminum and wood with some sort of epoxy .General keep on of those epoxy tubes that you cut the amount i want off and then blend together .as far as i can tell patch is for ever . it dries fast .plane ,sand or file to make a perfect template again . Will give the template a touch of class ,shows the owner used it and can fix his mistakes . Sorry it happened ,and hope you can fix it and move on .

Welcome to Ljs
Seems like Art’s offer is a good way to go since they don’t make that brand anymore and the closest thing to it is $200+

Aaron…
I understand that you bought a Mortisepal from Art. He indicated that you may be willing to part with a set or two of the aluminum templates.
I’m new to the site so I can’t PM you. Maybe you could PM back to me if interested.
Thanks !

Want to save some money? Spend the $10 on Philip Morley’s plans for his Morley Mortiser. That, and another $70 in materials (the MicroJig clamps are the big cost at $40) will give you everything you need to cut mortises as well, or better, than that $200 jig. Plus, the MicroJig dovetail clamps are multi-taskers. You can build many other jigs and fixtures that use them.

The Woodsmith Shop TV show had a router mortise jig featured in episode 1207 a few months back. It looks similar in concept to the Morley design. You can see a Youtube video excerpt from the episode here. I was able to download the plans for free but I am not sure if that is because I subscribe to the magazine of if it is because I subscribe to Woodsmith’s weekly email newsletter. They also sell the plans on their woodsmith plans website.
