    Mortise Pal Going Out of Business

    Received an email from Mortise Pal today announcing they are going out of business. They are having a 50% off sale on all remaining stock.

    Thought I would give a heads up to the community.

    I checked their website....no mention of a sale, but did notice they are out of stock on the $214 jig.

    I started with absolutely nothing. Now, thanks to years of hard work, careful planning, and perseverance, I find I still have most of it left.

    I imagine the Festool Domino really cut into their business. They were a lot less expensive than a Domino but the Domino was faster.

    This is a shame. An American small business with a great product. Glad I have one and I use it frequently.
    Take me to the hotel - Baggage gone, oh well . . .

    Dowelmax( Canadian company ) would have gone out of business as well had they not moved their production to China.Jessem is still around though.

    My thoughts as well. It's a product that I don't happen to have a use for, but well made and well thought out. I hope they've simply moved onto other things that are doing better for them.

    Now their web site seems dead.

    Really sad. I have one and love it. the best way to mortise for the price.

    My only complaint is that they upgraded three times over the years and the templates were not always compatible between versions.

    Website is fine but when you click the "buy" tab you get a message that the store is closed. I've wanted one of these for some time but the price was a bit out of my range. If anyone knows more about the 50% reduction offer, please post or send me a PM.
    Thanks!

    I just got this email, really sad.

    Thank you for your support over the last 7 years. But with great regret and sadness I must announce that Mortise Pal is going out of business. I've experienced an increase in the cost of manufacturing lately that makes continued production of the product untenable.

    I have stock remaining on several accessory items and spare parts and are offering them at a 50% savings. Stock is limited to the quantity on hand. Please pay attention to which jig you have when ordering accessory items. V3 jigs use an 11/16" OD guide bushing and the V1/V2 jig uses a 5/8" OD bushing. Please take a look at the template section of the store. I have many "in-between" sized templates that may or may not have been available when you ordered. I've also got some regular Whiteside router bits that were surplus stock from the early days as well as the custom "Long-Reach" bits that Whiteside made for me.

    The on line store will be live for a week or so and then closed for good.

    Please use coupon code MP2014

    Sincerely,

    Robert Gill

    Sad,
    I got the email earlier this week and ordered some loose tenons and got another email today. This year I made 6 walnut dining chairs using their jig and tenons, worked great on compound angles.
