A lot of unnecessary work. Why didn't he just clamp his cross slide vice to the Mark V table?

He said the table was too big for what he was doing, Didn't understand his reasoning myself. :)

If the table was too big (which is like being too rich or too good looking), he could have unbolted it and mounted his new table (board) on the trunnions.

I do like the idea of mortising this way but it's going to be limited to small stock. Usually a tenon goes on the end of long narrow boards like that unless you're joining them end to end.

Seems like a waste of a perfectly good Shopsmith to make it a dedicated slot mortiser only when it can do a lot more. Surprised no one commented on the guy in the video who said "can use as a tablesaw which is terrifying and I refuse to do it". A bit harsh, no???
