Overview

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

review date: September 1, 2005

The fences and backward on/off switch (the machine turns on when the switch is pulled back) on this biscuit joiner take 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 JS100 has a three-position fence for 0, 45, and 90 degree angles, which probably isn't versatile enough for most professionals.
