Classic C2 Biscuit Joiner Review
Although it lacks a comfortable grip, this biscuit joiner from Lamello is packed with features
This biscuit joiner is packed with features. But surprisingly, its well-thought-out design doesn’t include a comfortable grip like those found on the DeWalt and Porter-Cable tools. It has a versatile fence with detents at 22.5, 45, and 67.5 degrees. Unfortunately, the angles are not marked. The height stop reaches 2-3/8 in. to center biscuits in 4-3/4-in. boards and also can be attached to the base to stabilize the tool for vertical use. An accessory thickness plate can be attached to the fence to center biscuit slots in 1/2-in. stock. This joiner cuts slots for #0, #10, #20, S, D, and M biscuits. The dust port worked well, though it doesn’t come with a dust bag. An aftermarket accessory vacuum hose ($49) is available, as well as a smaller blade that can be used to cut mini-biscuits ($99). The Classic C2 comes with a toolbox-style case with a tray for its accessories. The manual is too brief to be useful.
