You do not need a hollow-chisel mortising machine to make quick, accurate mortise-and-tenon joinery. Perfect mortises are a snap with this jig. You can have it built and ready to use in an afternoon. When you are done making this jig, you will be able to cut mortises in a set of table legs in about 15 minutes.
