Re: mortise machine capacity
I was in the market for a mortising machine not that long ago and decided to pass on buying one, for the time being at least. For the projects that I had intended to use it for, I decided that I could get away with using a doweled joint instead of a M&T one. I ended up getting this one from Woodcraft. I don't know if this will work out for your application but at less than 1/3 the cost of the mortisepal it's an alternative to consider.
