Overview

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

review date: September 1, 2005

The fence and backward on/off switch (the machine turns on when the switch is pulled back) on this biscuit joiners takes some getting used to. But it made accurate joints, and the dust collection worked well. Changing the blade involves unscrewing the fence and removing the springs with a special hook; be careful not to stretch them in the process. The JS100 and JS102 were the only tools we tested with A and B slot depths. A cuts an 11-mm-deep slot; B cuts 13 mm deep. The fence on the JS102 can be set to any angle from 0 to 90 degrees, with a detent at 45 degrees.
