Well, I made up my mind on how to cut my mortises and decided to get a dedicated benchtop mortising machine. After looking at all of the options, I went with the general for a few reasons.
1) Tilting head
3) Clamping mechanism
4) Slow Speed
I probably could have gotten a very fine machine for about 1/2 the price, but I figured why not get the general? I actually got it from a local tool store. Price was the same as online and tax was cheaper than having it shipped!
