Rig-A-Mortis (mortis and tenon jig)
Back in 1992 I attended a wood show at Anaheim Stadium where I saw this Rid-A-mortis jig being demoed. I remember my Father-in-law and me watching this guy cut tendons like they were nothing. We were so impressed we split the cost and bought it. 17 years later I opened the box to check it out and set it up.
Well wouldn’t you know…I can’t remember how it works? I can cut the mortis but the tendon I can only cut square when it should be rounded off like the mortis. That was the beauty of the jig, not having to chisel the mortis to match the tendon. Did any one else buy this jig and can offer me some help?
The company I believe is no longer in business.
