Definition of biscuit jointer in English:
A tool used to cut slots into pieces of wood so that they can be joined using a biscuit (see biscuit (sense 4)).
- The biscuit jointer uses a small, carbide-tipped circular saw blade to cut matching half-circle slots in the edges of two boards that are being joined.
- We recommend using a top gauge on your biscuit jointer to set your slot instead of using the base plate.
- The biscuit jointer is guided between two columns and moved towards the workpiece on an angle width stop.
