    Unless I have a lot of mortices to do, say more than eight, I really prefer to cut them by hand. I no longer have access to a dedicated morticer. While I have a morticer for my drill press, I do not consider it worth the original expense. I do NOT like using a router, although it is sometimes expedient, noise and mess being main reservations, plus the possibility of slips and the bother of setting up. What do I have all my mortice chisels for, except to use them?

    At the top, is a tool properly called a bruzze, which is a wagon-makerís tool. Or you might call it a veiner, which to my mind is for carving or was made by Sorby. I made a nice handle to fit. The incannel angle is 50 degrees.
