It looks like I'm probably going to be getting into doing quite a bit of arts & crafts/mission style building soon. That being the case, a mortiser is going to be a must! Harbor Freight sells one for $200 but it's on sale for $180. I just checked CL and there's one not too far from me that looks to be in excellent condition and the guy only wants $80 for it. I sent him an email saying the if it's still available, I'll take it.
Anyone here ever used one? If so, how did you like it? I know it's not going to be as good as a Delta or a Jet, but it should be fine for me to get started with. Any input is appreciated.
