Overview

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

review date: September 1, 2005

This is the only biscuit joiner we tested with a safety mechanism on the top-mounted switch that prevents it from being turned on accidentally. Although this joiner is lightweight, it was difficult to grip the square body. The fence was simple to use, but the angle adjustment, limited to 90 degrees, was difficult to read. The height adjustment, on the other hand, reaches almost 2 in., allowing biscuits to be centered in 3-1/2-in. stock. This joiner cuts slots for #0, #10, and #20 biscuits.
