Summary: I've only recently acquired this, but have used it extensively in the last month. I've used a few biscuit jointers in the last year, borrowed from friends and colleagues and this one is in a different league. It's so easy to adjust, set up and accurately cut the slots where you need them it's an absolute breeze to use and unlike a lot of powertools which are effectively circular saws it's not in the least intimidating to use.
Excerpt: The slide mechanism is poorly manufactured, this allows the blade to move with respect to the work piece. I have since checked another joiner of the same model and the same problem exists. This is a small tolerance issue with manufacturing but makes accurate work impossible.
Excerpt: Very nice machine. I had a Freud but the design of this is way better, the rack and pinion vertical adjustment is nice and so is the fact that you can simply flip the fence and get a "clean" face. The Freud had a design more similar to the Lamello with the fence dovetailed, so you had to remove it to use it on "T" shaped joints. It is actually good for acute angles, there is a little recess at the base of the fence that helps you in that.
