A New Toy for the Woodshop... :D

(Jonty Bottomley) #1

The space now has a biscuit jointer, an extremely useful and versitile tool for joining boards, cutting grooves in vertical panels for draw runners, internal splines in mitred corners and a multitude of other tasks.

Talk to @woodtechs for a run-through of how to use the machine safely.

It lives on the shelf with the other hand power tools, biscuits live in one of the draws of the glue cabinet.

And a couple of photographic examples;

N.b. long grooves should be made in multiple passes, this is not a router to be dragged along a piece of timber. We have biscuit bits for a router for these sorts of uses which is a much more stable and therefore safe means of doing this task.
