Editor's Review: Benchtop Mortisers

by Roland Johnson

review date: August 1, 2005

Properly set up and operated, a mortising machine cuts straight, square-sided mortises in relatively short order. The author had eight benchtop models shipped to his shop for a close examination. The Bridgewood has the lowest price of the machines tested, but no chisels and bits are included. Turning the top of the machine allows it to cut long or wide workpieces. It had the second-lowest runout in our test of the category.
