"Mortise machine drill/cutters. I want one. Chopping mortises by hand is fun for the first dozen..."

Correct. A way to drill square holes. Brilliant. A friend worked at a local council rubbish tip and one guy came in dumping a whole bunch of tools...
You need a specific drill press for those to work though.
Quick & clean with the whole rig running!

Absolutely, they have to be pretty tough to repeatedly bear down & then withdraw the hollow chisel, especially in hardwood. My little bench top mortiser:

An attempt to make light-duty bar clamps. (good intentions but not recommended in practice :(. FAIL)
