Best biscuit machine,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Lamello 101252 Classic C3 5 Amp Plate Joiner (Tools & Home Improvement)I have used thousands of biscuits; I have owned a Virutex plate joiner and after I wore it out I bought a Dewalt which i just gave a way. I decided to splurge (I am a professional woodworker) and i wish i had bought the Lamello years ago, they used to be over $600 I think. With discounts and the simplified design (no biscuit height adjustment in relation to the base) this one was "affordable", Thanks Amazon! It does everything precisely with a smooth slide action, fairly quiet motor and gears, and the blade change is price less. You do not have to dis-assemble half the fence and lose the little screws and springs as was the case with the other ones. It doesn't quite align in biscuit height with the others so you will want to start on a new project, not in the middle of one. It also is probably metric machined so it is a bit off center in a piece of 3/4 ply, referenced from the base. But I can live with this. Life's too short don't deny yourself.
