The JessEm Zip Slot Mortise Mill looks pretty slick from the video. As an aside ... have I mentioned how much I love the fact that my CT22 is quiet ... using the vac in the video would certainly result in hearing loss.

That little guy looks like a minature lock mortiser. I have always wanted to try using a lock mortiser to make extra large mortises for doors and such. I never seem to have an extra 1,000.00 lying around though. I keep buying up festools. I think I may have to start a virutex lock mortiser fund. I mean I build enough doors, I should have one already.

I've been eyeing this Trend mortise and tenon jig: Trend Mortise & Tenon Jig - Rockler Woodworking Tools

Not cheap (!), but looks like it might work. The Trend company seems to have some good products, but I've never tried any. Any thoughts?

This looks like a hokey piece of crap to me. I just can't imaging standing there with a drill in one hand and working the lever back and forth with the other. Seems like you're in for an awful lot of bit wear with all the lateral force you're putting on it and using it in an unintended fashion. I'd think if you need these types of joints stick with using a router, not a hand drill.

Not to mention wear on the drill's bearings, which weren't chosen for heavy side loads.

There must be a reason that routers run at speeds ten times faster than drills. Hmm...cut quality?

Jessem is well known for producing hokey pieces of crap.

I was curious about this, too, Ned. I once tried chucking a straight cutter bit in my drill press to do some light shaping on a small piece. It didn't work at all. So the rotation speed is clearly important...
