biscuit joiner? - 21 replies
ok there are 4 reviews of biscuit joiners in the review section but I know there are probably more out there. I think I might really use one for miters and tabletop making, do you guys use yours a lot? I’m also pretty tight with my money but I might be willing to shell out $200 or so for one if I will use it a lot. Is the porter-cab...

Ok, I have a Jet 10” benchtop table saw w/ stand. I want to change to a 1998 Delta Contractor’s saw. I’m pretty sure I’m going to do it but thought I’d check to see what ya’ll thought. I want to swap because I don’t like the non-standard miter slots, fence, and weird blade insert. I have made a zer...
