I'm not a furniture builder, but a weekend hobbyist that does mostly
"rough" woodworking. I have a tendency though when I buy tools to buy
the best. I just bought a $225 PC biscuit joiner. I've been thinking
that maybe the Ryobi $100 biscuit joiner would suit my infrequent
needs. I do build some cabinets and in the future I'm thinking about
building my kitchen cabinents, but then I'm still not sure I should
have gotten the high-end tool. Or maybe I just feel bad for spending
that much money? Sigh.
When I saw my first aticle about biscuit joining I decided to try the
Freud as a kind of Proof Of Concept.
It worked well enough that I bought a Lamello.
That was almost two decades ago and I still have the Lamello.
They've changed the name to a Top 10, or some such, but that original
Lamello still works like it did on the day I got it.
There used to be a guy who posted here and his sig was, "buy the best
and only cry once" - he had the right idea.
