Editor's Review: Biscuit Joiners: From Simple to Super
review date: September 1, 2005
This biscuit joiner is small and lightweight, with a comfortable handle and trigger. The trigger can be locked in the on position for multiple cuts. The fence is easy to calibrate. However, both the angle adjustment (0 to 90 degrees) and height adjustments (1-3/8 in. maximum) are limited compared to many other biscuit joiners. The blade was easy to access and remove with the included wrench, but when cutting solid wood, the dust port clogged after every few cuts with the dust-bag assembly attached. This joiner cuts slots for #0, #10, #20, and M biscuits. It comes in a sturdy, compact case.
This joiner is only available now in a kit (model no. DW682K), which includes a carbide blade, dust bag, vacuum adapter, Torx key, wrench, and heavy-duty box.
