Does anyone currently make the Detail plate joiners anymore? I think these took the R1 thru R3 biscuits which are a little smaller thanthe current FF size ones. I would like to use these on 1/2 inch material miter joints.

I haven’t seen one around in a long time, but I bet you could find one on craigslist. A quick search in my area located one:

The FF biscuits might be a decent option for your as well depending on how wide your joint is.

Thanks Paul , I have a jointer that will do #0 , 10 and 20 but not the FF size . I was just thinking I might be able to find the smaller unit and have to buy a whole new full size unit just to get the FF feature.

I am going tobe doing 45 degree miters on the side of the 1/2 inch for small jewelry boxes and such so the pieces will be 1/2 ” thick and about 2 to 3 ” high and however long the box sides will be.
Maybe I can find some one to borrow an FF size tool from and see if it will work for what I need. No luck yet on Craigslist in the San Jose area but I will keep looking.

The PC handles the FF size. They give you two blades. I almost always have the FF in there, for rebuilding headstocks on guitar necks.
