From FWW #178 (July/August 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 Shop Fox has an outstanding lever arm: Its length makes it possible to cut with less effort, and the arm is especially easy to adjust. This model has a microadjustable fence and the greatest plunge depth of those tested. It's also capable of cutting long or wide workpieces.
