Tool review: Biscuit Joiners

This lightweight, nimble tool works great for cutting slots when referencing from its base, and it has a smooth plunge action. But the fence's cam-action locking lever moves the fence out of parallel with the blade when you lock it down. As a result, we had a tough time making accurate cuts when referencing from the fence, regardless of the angle. The turret depth stop spins so loosely we accidentally bumped it to the "max" setting when making a vertical cut, and cut slots through our test board and into the benchtop. You'll get better dust collection using a shop vacuum than the bag. Finally, the slide-style power switch proves less comfortable than triggers on the other barrel-grip machines.
