I looked at the Jet and the Powermatic. I pulled the trigger and bought the powermatic. It was only 300 dollars more.
It’s here next week. Also got the Powermatic floormounted hollow chisel morticer with tilting bet. I got this so I can do repetitive cuts foe Chinese joinery.
Anyone else have this morticer?

Congratulations on the new tools. I have the Jet floor mortiser, which is the same as the PM except no tilting table. It is a robust tool with some great features. You’ll love it.

Plunging mortises seems effortless compared to my bench top mortiser.

Thanks I see you are really into the arts and crafts style. Beautiful stuff! Really need a mortiser for that type of work.
