Kenny,

  • Hand saw (quick - eventually. With practice.) and shoulder plane (ooo, look, an excuse to take a trip on The Slope. Obviously a Good Thing...)
    Router plane (slow, slow, quick, qui-, well just slow really)
    Router table (like this)
    Bandsaw (ah, gotta love the Neanderbuddy)
    Cheat and use a biccy jointer or Beadlock
    Woodrat (oh look mother, quick and accurate)
    Spindle moulder (how quick that is might depend on how long you take to save for one of course...)
    Leigh <choke> or Trend M&T jig (lest said soonest argument avoided :wink: )
Ah, there's probably plenty more, but to be going on with. :D

Cheers, Alf

scouting about
Is this a private argument or can anybody join in :wink:

I would go for :
Handsaw or Router(with a home made jig) and then a Bandsaw(I dont own one hence last choice) simple, economic and quicker with each one cut.

To try to get past the arguing. lol. I use a router jig to make the mortices and jigs on the table saw for both shoulder and cheek cuts.
A few pieces of plywood, mdf, hard and softwood and an hour to make the jigs.
Just a few minutes to make each M&T

Hello Dowels,
Over the last three years I haven't found a better way (or quicker) than using the table saw (Triton workcentre).

Of course you could always ask Ian again he might do half of them for you. :roll:
