Lamello Fixo No-Clamp Joints

Review Summary

In a move that may challenge our love of pocket-screw joinery, Lamello introduces a new method of clamp-free joinery with Fixo biscuits. To use them, you simply hold the joint together face-down, and cut a biscuit slot or two across the joint. Apply glue to the workpieces—not the biscuit slot—and then drive the ribbed half-biscuits into the slots. The curved ribs actually draw the joint together, while small barbs keeps Fixo from falling out.
