9 reviews for DEWALT Biscuit Joiner Kit, 6.5-Amp (DW682K)

  1. Eric Uptagrafft

    This biscuit jointer was key in getting some of my large glue-up panels all together before the glue dried. I bought some cheepo biscuits and many of them didn’t fit the slots securely. Need tight fitting biscuits to make the seams really line up.

  2. Marc SantaCruz

    I had the Ryobi for a few days, then returned it due to an out-of-alignment screw that was causing all the joints to be off. Got this DW instead and glad I did. It’s much nicer than the Ryobi. Here’s why: the ryobi chip exhaust clogged a lot and the vertical scale is hard to read. The DW is much better.I’ve also tried the beadlock system (where you drill a 3-4 hole dowel in). It makes a super strong joint, but I find the plate joiner is easier to get a flush joint.

  3. Stephen Balloch

    I’ve seen a lot of people stating that it does not cut a parallel or even slot. With every tool you purchase there is always going to be setup and tuning. Invest in a mini machine square and a small combo square. All of the perameters are adjustable, cut depth, cut height, parallel to base plate. If you are new to useing the tool do your research. Remember to check it periodically that it has stayed in tune.Honestly this is a great tool. DeWalt has always built quality.

    This little device is a fantastic help when building furniture when you don’t want the hassle of making tongue and groove joints. It is quick and easy. Just be sure to check the stops first for accuracy.

    I love this tool it is so much better and faster and more precise than using wooden dowels……..I like the Dewalt brand much better than the Porter Cable brand as these tools have gone down hill in he last few years so much so that I wont buy them anymore

    So I’m just getting in to making items with wood that are actually nice to look at. I grew up watching Norm and always admired his skill and his TOOL collection!On to my review – my first project with this was a deck box to store outdoor cushions and I used an assortment of 1×6, 1×4, 1×3 to make the sides, bottom and trim, plans were developed in the head, on the fly.Initial impression was good – the device appears to be well constructed, is pretty well balanced and the adjustments appear pretty easy.First use – On some scrap wood I put a few slots in it and it took a bit to figure out how the biscuit depth/size (0,10,20) was registered on rotating adjustment, once I figured this out, it was off to start joining boards, once the locations for the joint are identified, lineing up and maintaining the joiner on the spot on the wood was very easy. There is a springloaded abrasive (I don’t know the technical term for it) on the face of the tool where the blade retracts that once the device is held tightly against the work surface, it holds the joiner in place for the duration of the plunge and cut. It does generate a good bit of dust and depending on your position it can end up towards your face. Eye protection is a great idea (as well as ears) when using this or any power tool. The cuts that it made (I’ve used it to make about 100 slots now) have all been very clean and accurate.For someone that it just getting in to woodworking, this is great tool, and I doubt that for my use (limited weekend/evening use) I’ll ever exceed it’s capabilities/useful life. I’ve got several Dewalt power tools that are 17 years old now and still function like new and I have had good experience with with their products. I am not a “DeWalt” only tool person though, I have Red, Blue, Orange, Yellow and Grey tools in my garage.Update 4/14/2015 – I’ve had the biscuit joiner for about a year now, and it’s still operating as as new. I’m very happy with the purchase. I’ve since made drawers, cabinet doors and large surfaces with several boards running lengthwise. It’s functioned with ease and I’m still on the first cutter blade with no discernible degradation in cutting performance (blade or motor).

    No change in motor rpm when using on both oak and maple. Quickly and easily adjusts between #20 biscuits and #10 biscuits.Some people have complained about it not cleaning all of the shavings out of the groove, but I have found that if you just plunge twice, when you have the joiner in place, the groove will be dust free.As to the dust bag, the sawdust does tend to plug the chute between the blade and the dust bag. It takes a lot of cuts for it to clog, but if you take the dust bag off and clean the chute, the first time you see shavings coming out the front of the joiner, it is very easy to clean out. If you take the dust bag off and attach a shop vac to the joiner, there is no problems with the chute clogging.The design of the joiner is very ergonomic, the front handle works very well for holding the joiner both flush and square.Once you become familiar with the adjustments, it is pretty easy to make miter joints and frame joints..I am very happy with this Joiner!

    Works like a champ. Used it to make about 50 biscuit joints already, and no problems. Watch videos on youtube if you want to see the many different techniques you can use to use this tool.My only complaint is that the little port which blows dust into the dust bag occasionally clogs up. I figured out that on woods like oak, if I just cut a little slower by pushing in the cutter a little slower, the little port never gets clogged up. It only gets clogged up if I jam it in really fast, making huge curly cue shavings of wood. The motor has no problem cutting the slot quickly, but just go a little slower, and the dust is finer and it never gets clogged. And then when you go slower, the cut comes out looking cleaner and nicer anyway.I’m a real fan of DeWalt tools, and this one didn’t let me down. I have a whole bunch of DeWalt tools, some of them are like 20 years old with tons of use, and they all work great. The only thing I’ve ever had to replace was a battery back for my 18 volt drill after getting tons of use out of it.

    I have never used a plate or biscuit joiner before, but I am glad I started with this DeWalt Plate Joiner as it was simple to align and use right out of the box. I could easily cut and set biscuits to join boards for my project. The only problem I had was with the discharge shoot and clearing wood shreds and sawdust. I do not have a vacuum or dust collection system to hook up to the joiner which would certainly help “pull” this out as you go, but I found that the discharge shoot would clog up regularly and never really get wood shreds into the bag. That said, I still love this DeWalt Plate Joiner and it’s a welcome addition to my family of DeWalt tools.
