Vertical Biscuited Joints
The commonly accepted method of slotting the ends of boards and panels for biscuits is to use the fence in combination with a holding and setup jig. This leads to problems in both accuracy and stability of cut. Note the unsteady way in which the tool must be positioned to attempt the cut, and note the cumbersome and restrictive jig that must be used to help prevent tilting.
A more efficient method is to store the fence and simply register the cuts from the bottom of the tool using the Benchtop Reference Method <1>. This eliminates the problems associated with the previous effort.
