Smile Woodgears vertical mortiser

I saw a beautifully designed vertical mortiser jig by woodgears with a handle control. I would really like to build that jig. Has anyone seen the jig i am referring to?

Regards
the new guy

just finished mathias's screw advanced box joint jig last night. idunno if that is the one you are referring to. starting on his bandsaw today. have the plans for the pantorouter too for when i am done the bandsaw.

i know he has a horizontal slot mortiser. maybe this is your reference??

the man has done some slick stuff with wood that's for sure.

Have you checked the woodgears web site under Woodworking Equipment? There are a few choices there.

I saw the video of the pantorouter and it looks amazing with the copying of the patterns. I saw the video of the mortiser as well and it looks extremely technical. I would love to have that plan so that i can build it. By the look of it one will have to be very,very careful making the components for that jig. If you come across any of his plans could you please let me know. Regards and many thanks guys.

I use Mozilla Firefox and have no problems. You could try downloading it. Its free and you can have more than one browser on your computer.

I built two machines, the first one with a wooden holder for the router as he showed.
Took that to a show but the humidity bound it up tighter than a drum, because the guide screw also went thru it. Second one I attached the router to a router plate I had and that to a rod and nuts epoxied to it. Also made several other improvements
I just used his tutorial to build it, it was fairly easy to figure out.

Hi brian
thank you so much for your reply. I am new at woodworking only about two years. I am making plenty of mistakes but learning all the time. I decided that if i am going to get better at this amazing craft i need some good jigs to assist me at getting very accurate at doing it. I want to set up my little workshop with jigs that are effective. When i make mistakes like i do , i get very disheartened. I put down what i am working on and take a break. This slows me down immensley.
I need to get plans to build certain jigs but they are rather expensive. If anyone has any plans for the " godzilla " mortiser or the other one on woodgears i would be eternally greatful.
Many thanks and regards guys.

sorry but i gotta say if his plans are too expensive, how can you buy the materials and tools to build one?

a guy puts the effort into his designs, regardless of who, he deserves to get paid for them.

so, otherwise, hobble something together to the best of your abilities.
