Accuracy is critical when creating joints and The DEWALT Plate Joiner Kit delivers. Its dual rack-and-pinion fence is designed to ensure the blade and fence are always parallel--the toughest part of creating a perfect joint. This one-piece fence is integrated into the joiner's overall design for convenience, plus it's adjustable, and can be tilted at angles ranging from 0 to 90 degrees.
The plate joiner's configuration allows you to make flush cuts without removing the fence. A 45-degree locating notch in the fence allows for easy indexing of an outside registration.
Dependable Motor for Quick, Precise Cuts
The DW682K's 6-1/2 amp, 10,000 rpm motor provides plenty of power for making cuts at depth of up to 20 millimeters--even in the hardest woods. The power behind the cut is an integral part of what makes this tool safer, as it prevents unexpected movements with your workpiece.
Convenient Design Details Including Preset Stops
Equipped with a non-marring, heavy-duty aluminum shoe, the DW682K can be clamped down for stable, stationary work. And whether you're using the joiner clamped down or as a free-moving unit, the retractable, antislip pins help hold your workpiece in place for the perfect cut. And it weighs just 6.6 pounds for easy handling.
For easy setup, the DW682K features preset depth stops for all common biscuit sizes of 0, 10, and 20.
The DW682K Plate Joiner Kit comes with a DEWALT warranty package that includes a three-year limited warranty, a one-year free service contract, and a 90-day money-back guarantee.
What's in the Box
DW682K Plate Joiner, carbide blade, dust bag, vacuum adapter, Torx key, wrench, and kit box.
The Plate Joiner has three preset stops for common biscuit sizes.

Since I wear hearing protection with ALL power tools I cannot comment on how loud it is. (My ears don't ring all the time, either.) The dust bag, as is usual with all dust bags, doesn't work and I haven't used it since the first try. The shop vac does the trick.
It has worked flawlessly on everything from positioning slats in a headboard (OK, I could have used mortise-and-tenon joints, but there were a LOT of slats) to attaching edging to plywood, to table-top glue-ups. The only biscuit failure I've had was when I tried to use it to attach the aprons to the legs on a children's play table. Some places NEED better joinery!
I am a little confused about the other reviews talking about the machine dumping dust on your feet. Mine has a swiveling plastic nozzle that I direct to the side when I cut without the vac. It seems to work fine. Have they changed this design lately?
... it, it seems like a bargain. The Lamello is unbelievably expensive (at least for a hobbyist), the Porter-Cable seems like a nice tool (that I have not tried yet), but the DeWalt seems like the value champ.
One, it clogs after about 5 cuts, sometimes after 3, for #20 biscuits in ash. The shaving port has a metal projection in the middle of it (too keep fingers out?). I'm contemplating removing it.
The fence angle indicator is not even close. Not a big deal, it is too crude to use reliably anyway.
Third, when edge joining, the cut is not parallel to the surface of the board. If I make two cuts side by side, the right-hand cut will be a bit higher on it's left side, than the left-hand cut is on it's right side. If that makes any sense to you, it indicates that the machine is not trued to the fence as is should be. If this is fixable, I have yet to figure out how. The discrepancy is fairly minor, but I'd sure like it to be better than this.
It seems to be a good product, but not as good as a DeWalt should be.
Where your money is better spent if you do a lot of this work is with a high end tool. The Lamello is a silkier setup at a much bigger price: but you make up the cost on time and hassle savings.
For my purpose, I'd buy the DeWalt again.
Update: Fine Woodworking magazine did a review in their September/October 2001 issue and out of 12 jointers, DeWalt had the worst score for biscuits out of parallel. Exact quote was, "although I can live with 0.017 in. out of parallel, biscuit joints assemble with less fuss when the number is 0.007 in. or lower." Lamello Top 20 came in at 0.000 and Makita came in at 0.001. The Porter came in at 0.005. They liked Lamello, Porter, Makita, and the DeWalt even after what they found. Being a casual user, I think I will consider the Makita because of the cost savings.
