This is my first mortising machine...

Daniel C from Newton, NH Posted April 10, 2013
This is my first mortising machine and I have to say I am very pleased with its ability. I am currently building the not so big workbench from fine woodworking and this mortising machine did the job and well and the fact it came with three bits was only a plus good price and quality.

I have been using my JBM-5...

Jensen G from Onalaska, WI Posted October 14, 2006
I have been using my JBM-5 for about a year now, and consider it a good investment for my home workshop.It compares favorably with machines from Delta, ShopFox, etc. with one notable exception: the fence can be a pain to set. The fence is attached to a steel hex rod that is held in place by a thumb screw. There is no rack & pinion fence adjustment (like the one on Delta's latest mortiser), so getting the workpiece centered on the table is more trial & error than I am comfortable with.The table is also pretty small (again, Delta's machine has a much larger table), so I am considering retrofitting it with the mortise table from Rockler.
