I'm partial to the horizontal mortiser that I designed - It was featured in FWW a half dozen years ago or so, and let me tell you, it works fast!
I know there are at least a few members here that have either used my slot mortiser, or have seen it in use. Everyone who sees it wants one, so I've actually recruited an expert draftsman to work on the plans for it, with cut lists, sources, etc... - We should have them wrapped up in the next couple of weeks...

@ Gregory- The thing I like about the slot mortiser from the site I posted is that the power head moves. When I'm working on a large piece of wood I don't have to worry about a large moving table. This allows the repeatable accuracy of this guy's design to be a couple of thousandths of an inch which makes multiple tenons on one joint feasible. It also means that you can set the work piece on any simple support since it doesn't have to move.
I've wanted a Multi-Router for years. I used to drool every time David Marks used his on his TV show, but the $3500 price tag made me choke. After using Greg Paolini's while building a Bow Arm Morris Chair, I am sold. I emailed Greg earlier this week and told him I wanted to schedule a time to build one with him in the fall. For my use his is wonderful and doesn't need dedicated floor space in the shop the way others I've seen do.(one this month in FWW digital edition)
