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: 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.
Excerpt: I'm amazed to see Axminster selling this tool. I got rid of my Elu version on eBay because I was tired of its foibles. Mine had a manufacturing defect which meant that the biscuit slot wasn't cut parallel to the base. (This wasn't a one off, other people had the same problem). And the design isn't that good for jointing mitres (it can't do acute angles).
Excerpt: Having used a biscuit jointer for about 10 years, I knew the features I wanted. The write up on this machine ticked all the boxes. In reality it far outreaches my expectations, a really well thought out and practical machine.
