The idea for this mortiser add-on has been running through my head for a few weeks now. I wasn’t sure how well it would work and I couldn’t resist trying out the idea any longer.
The templates are secured by the two bolts pictured above. An aluminum stylus rides against the template as the mortiser is moved forward and back. So far I am pleased with the results and I can see several practical uses for this add-on. The add-on will not get in the way when I need to use it for a standard mortiser. Yippeee!
