Hello to all
My Name is Mike and I have been doing woodwork for quite a while but
I hardly know all there is to be learned about woodworking.

I would like comments about the best type of bit to cut a mortise.

Thanks Mike

Welcome, neighbor!!
As for the bit, I would recommend an up-cut, plunge bit.
