Trying to get some information regarding these two jigs. Need to set
up for small production of mortise & tenons for furniture, including
chairs so angled m&t are important.
I have a lot of experience with the multi router and know it will do
the job, but for the price I'm wondering how close the FMT may come.
Disadvantage is no air clamp option for the FMT so loading would take
just a bit longer but my concerns are these:

expensive hobbyist jig then I know the JDS will do the job in a
