Overview

Editor's Review: Biscuit Joiners: From Simple to Super

review date: September 1, 2005

This biscuit joiner is heavy and poorly balanced, but the D-handle is comfortable to grip. The fence adjusts to angles from 0 to 135 degrees, with detents at 45 and 90 degrees. The height adjustment reaches a full 2 in. Although there was some play in the base of this joiner, it otherwise seemed well-made. It has a very effective dust bag. It cuts slots only for #0, #10, and #20 biscuits, but these are all that are needed for most joinery. The slot-size setting can be calibrated by adjusting a locking nut. The blade was difficult to change, but for $100, this is a fine tool for occasional trim carpentry and basic woodworking projects. The Ryobi JM82 is the same tool with only insignificant differences.
