the price sears charges now is $285.00. It works fine. The only draw back is putting it away. It weighs a ton and putting it on a shelf is a job.

I built one of these tools http://woodgears.ca/slot_mortiser/index.html although I completely changed so much of it for dust collection etc... so making mortises is fun for me and I look forward to them.

At least you admit this lol I dont know if I can!

Aw thanks, if you're interested I'd try to post some pics of the one I made so you could see the dust collection mods I made.

American Woodworker No 37 (April '94) has a cover story and plans for a (large) jig that uses your table saw's miter slots. The thing is billed as a combination horizontal router table and "slot mortiser/tenoning machine"

Looks neat. Haven't tried it. As of today, the article is available free at google books here:

I use my plundge router to make mortise, then make loose tenon stalk on the router table. It works out pretty well and is fun to do.
