As I have wandered into woodworking I have found that one of the most time-consuming but beneficial techniques is mortise-and-tenon joinery. The drill press and hand chisel combination is okay but slow. I would like to have a more efficient way to produce decent quality joints. I have seen jigs for routing mortises with a router, but have yet to try to make one (and the setup for these seems cumbersome). I have priced some hollow-chisel mortisers, but $300 is a lot to spend for one task. I have also seen mortising attachments for the drill press, but do not know how well they work. I also do not know if such an attachment is available for my drill press (recent model 10" Craftsman benchtop). Does anyone have any suggestions? I appreciate any thoughts on this, even if it is the "shut up and use your chisel" advice.
