Product Description

Amazon.com

The Lamello Top 20S is a fantastic grooving machine with a height-adjustable cutting tool. It features a 6-tooth carbide-tipped cutter with scoring teeth, integrated suction (vacuum connection 23mm) stub, and extractor stub (36mm); and it offers simple preparation of joints, even with projecting or rejecting areas. There's a soft start function for smooth acceleration, an overload protection system, and a dove-tail guidance system with grids of 1mm -- for absolutely parallel attachment and a large, safe working surface when you use the machine in a vertical position. This model includes a dust bag, square stop, slip-on plate (4mm), tool set, instructions, and a wood carrying case.

From the Manufacturer

From the company that invented the plate joining technique comes the highest quality plate joiner in the world. The Lamello joiners consistently live up to their reputation. The Lamello’s slide shoe, fence and multi-function stop square are all made from one piece of machine milled metal. Lamello is the only plate joiner in the world constructed like this. This quality of construction ensures perfect accuracy, literally for decades. Joints will always line up perfectly flush, saving you time, money and aggravation for years. Lamello’s plate joiner can cut grooves for 9 different biscuits without changing the cutting tool. The swiveling fence has positive stops at the most common cutting angles (0, 22.5, 45, 67.5 and 90 degrees). The multi-function stop square slides and locks on to the bottom of the slide shoe to make vertical use of the tool very quick and safe. The Top20S3 plate joiner also has Lamello’s patented step memory system. This allows the user to micro-adjust the cutter up or down in increments of 1/10th of an mm (4mm total distance from top position to bottom position). This makes joining offset pieces quick and accurate. The Top20S3 also features an electronic, soft start motor. If you’re looking for quality, durability, accuracy and versatility, the Lamello plate joiner can’t be beat. This unit comes in a wooden case and includes plate joiner with 6 tooth scoring cutter, dust bag, 36mm suction stub, 23mm suction stub, chip ejector stub, stop square, 4mm slip on plate, set of tools and owner’s manual. 6 tooth carbide tipped cutter with scoring teeth. Suction (vacuum connection 23mm) stub, extractor stub 36mm, dust bag, square stop, slip on plate 4mm, tool set, instructions, wood carrying case. Simple preparation of joints even with projecting or rejecting areas. Soft start for smooth acceleration. Overload protection system prevents motor damage due to overheating.

I had an old SKIL biscuit joiner for years and it did an OK job, but it was tired and a new one was in my immediate future. I researched and asked friends and of course they all loved the one they had. Most satisfied were the Porter Cable folks. So I borrowed a friends PC and used it on my last project. Decent machine, but not a life long product for a busy woodworker and the adjustments didn't seem as easy as the Lamello. I decided to get the Lamello and waited for 3 or 4 months checking the price on Amazon daily and when it dipped to $649.00 I jumped on it. WOW! What a machine. I hated that it took me so long to pull the trigger, but it beats everything I have seen or used hands down. The adjustments are SIMPLE and ACCURATE!! This is clearly a case of you get what you pay for. Wait for the price drop and do it!! Worth the higher price, but if you don't need it right away...save some bucks. You will NOT be unhappy! This is the first time I have ever taken the time to review any of my purchases, but this one warranted it and you people deserve to know. Good Luck!

Consumer report said "machine is the best, the wood case it comes with is destined to break in the back of a pickup" Well I like to buy the best of everything when I can so I bought the "Lamello Top 20" Sure enough the machine is top end, everything is crisp, clear easy to read and supper tight,no slop. I have never used a better plate jointer. The bad? Well my case was broke when I took it out of the delivery box. The wood case is so cheap it belongs with a kids Christmas toy. Kinda ruins the whole package. Plan on an alternate means of transporting this tool.

The only thing I can really say is...buy the best & forget the rest...you won't regret it.

Or you can do like I did. First buy a cheaper biscuit joiner, find out you get what you pay for, then spend even more money to buy what you should've bought in the first place.

Just a superb biscuit joiner. Very nice soft start. Zero slop & I do mean zero. Pinpoint setting adjustments. Dust bag is OK, but it's a dust bag. Hook it up to a shop vac for complete dust control.

If you want to use the Lamello Top 20 to join face frames or use it for other small applications, get the H-9 cutter head & applicably sized biscuits.

My old tool was aging so I replaced it with the Lamello. The Lamello fully mature product after many decades of perfecting the design. This tool is so well built that you have to use it and see it to believe it. The build quality is just off the scale. My wooden case arrives in perfect shape and well built. I gather that can vary from previous customer reviews. Other places are charging 150-250 more than Amazon. It is expensive but Amazon eases the pain of the price. Every cut perfect - the first and repeated. Superb accuracy. As expensive as this tool is presently - the the EURO vs the US dollar will drive the price even higher in the near future. Lamello reminds me of Starrett quality of many many decades ago! This tool is not over priced - the only question whether one can afford or needs the quality.

I have one other tools(the one replaced)around 200.00(there are several in that price range) not to mention any names - it has always been inconsistent on repeat cuts - there is some play somewhere. It been disappointing. Others have commented with similar issues on precision. The Lamello everything works perfect from the first to the last! WOW! what a difference!
