I never use biscuits in a close fitting flat glued joint either.

If your biscuits are tight, that means they’ve gathered up moisture, & causing them to swell.

I store my biscuits in a tightly sealed jar.

Biscuits aren’t supposed to be tight. The glue is supposed to make them swell.

Another thing that I’ve heard, the swelling of the biscuits

have caused raised humps along the surface, on certain wood types.
