Hollow Chisel Mortising machine


Hey there,
I recently traded laying my sister's floor in her home, and reluctant to accept cash, she offered to buy me a machine of my choice.
The choice is, Which dedicated (table modle) would you recommend. Post here, thanks.

I have the General with the tilt head, but have only played with it with a few scraps of wood so far. It is solid and operates smoothly. It is a definite step up from the lower priced Delta I have used before, but more pricey. I will know more about it this fall when I tackle an entertainment center out of antique yellow pine and a new dinning room trestle table out of two inch mahogany.

I like my tilt-head General a lot. It's getting quite a workout on my latest project (frame and panel cherry buffet/hutch for SWMBO).

Which one do you have, the 050T or the 075?
