    Re: My Tenons need Mortises

    I use a Delta hollow chisel mortising attachment on a 17" floor model drill press. Seems to work well. Actually, I've found that cutting the tenons takes longer than the mortises - all your fences, jigs and whatnot need to be absolutely perfectly square to make a decent tenon, but you can make a very simple setup on the drill pres table and just bang out the mortises. When I need to finish fast, I cut two mortises and use a floating tenon. Just as strong, and there are no cheek and shoulder cuts to line up perfectly!
