TReisch I am working on a job with a bunch of mortise and tenons. How are you hanging the parts off the front and running them? I am cutting one side then flipping the part and cutting the other side. If I could stand the 4x4 on end it would be much faster.

Ted built a jig to give him a vertical axis, see this post :lol: :lol:

That is a cool setup. Unfortunately it won't work with our machine.

Thanks DM. I could do it that way because I could move the machine rails forward and be able to cut outside of the bed.

I have seen machines where they have a hole (slot) in the bed to accomplish the same thing. Maybe you can take a look at that. Of course, if your parts are too long, well, they are just too long! My machine bed sits about 36 inches from the floor so I can put tenons on some pretty long parts.
