I'm assuming, but only assuming it should be capable of cutting mortises with several passes.
I'm pretty good chopping them out with a chisel, but when I have 20 or 30 to do it gets kind of tiresome and I start making too many mistakes not to mention missing with the mallet and hammering my thumbs and fingers every now and then..plus stopping to sharpen the chisel umteen times ..
Umteen is an official term for to damned many times..lol
I figured it's time to change my signature so hold your breath. This is it.
