You have purchased a precision woodworking tool. The function of the plate joiner is to enable you to make extremely strong and accurate joints in wood and wood by products. The tool works by a plunging action to precisely cut crescent shaped slots for the placement of flat wooden dowels or "biscuits" like those shown in Figure 2. The tool may be further enhanced by some simple jigs and fixtures that can be easily made.

Class II Construction The following sections will discuss the various controls and you will need to know where they are. Overview You have purchased a precision woodworking tool. The function of the plate joiner is to enable you to make extremely strong and accurate joints in wood and wood by products.
The tool may be further enhanced by some simple jigs and fixtures that can be easily made. Some of the more common biscuit joinery applications are shown in Figure 3 and are discussed in detail in the applications section of this manual. Switch Your plate joiner has a trigger switch located on the underside, as shown in Figure 1.
To turn the tool on, depress the trigger. To turn the tool off, release the trigger. To lock the tool on for continuous operation, there is a lock on button located at the rear of the tool just above the cord.
When cutting always hold the tool with one hand on the switch handle and one hand on the auxiliary handle. To lock the tool on, depress and hold the trigger as you depress the lock button. Hold the lock button in as you gently release the trigger. The tool will continue to run. To turn the tool off from a locked on condition, depress and release the trigger once.
Blade Replacement In time your saw blade will wear out and need replacement. To remove the blade, follow the steps below. Turn off and unplug the plate joiner. Remove the 4 torx head screws from the bottom of the shoe, using the T20 torx screwdriver provided. Rotate the shoe out of the way.
Use the spanner wrench provided to loosen counterclockwise the blade nut. Depress the spindle lock pin on the top of the gear case to hold the spindle while you unscrew the nut. Remove the blade and have it sharpened or replace it with a new one.
Reinstall the blade by reversing the steps above. Be sure blade teeth point counterclockwise as shown in Figure 4. Adjust if necessary. See "Controls" section. All of the controls that let you make a variety of precision cuts are located on this assembly.
Take a few minutes to become familiar with the various controls. See Applications section under Miter Joints, Figure The height adjustment is accomplished by first loosening the lock knob on the right side of the fence and then rotating the knurled adjustment knob until the desired height is reached see Figure 5.
Tightening the lock knob will then automatically align the fence parallel to the blade and lock it in position. The vertical scale and pointer located directly under the lock knob can be used to assist in setting this height.
The fence angle can be set simply by loosening the lock knob on the left side of the tool, aligning the protractor scale with the pointer and tightening the lock knob. The numbers on the depth adjustment knob 0,10,20,M coincide with the three sizes of biscuits shown in Figure 2.
This depth is obtainable only with a new blade and by backing out the fine adjustment screw see next section. NOTE: The M setting has been provided for future use and will not be necessary for most biscuiting operations.
For these instances a fine depth adjustment has been provided. To adjust, you must first raise the adjustable fence to its uppermost position. Then insert the T20 torx wrench provided into the opening as shown in Figure 8. Turn the depth adjustment screw clockwise for less depth and counterclockwise for increased depth. Each full turn causes a change in depth of 1mm 0. Always check the depth adjustment by first making test cuts in scrap wood.
This tendency is increased with a dull blade or when plunging very rapidly. Anti-slippage pins have been provided to reduce this tendency and are located on the front registration surface on either side of the blade opening slot. When making some joints, you may wish to retract the anti-slippage pins so as not to scratch your workpiece in a visible area. A flat blade screwdriver can be used to rotate the pins as shown in Figure 9. To avoid breaking through the workpiece, align the shoe so that neither outside mark extends beyond the end of the workpiece.
If either side does, there is a good chance that the blade will break through the surface and ruin your work. Adjustable Direction Elbow See Figure 10 This attachment inserts into the dust exhaust port on the right side at the rear of the base assembly and clicks into place.
To remove, pull out firmly. The directional elbow rotates easily to aim the dust in the most convenient direction suitable for the particular application. The definitions below describe the level of severity for each signal word. Please read the manual and pay attention to these symbols. NOTICE: indicates a practice not related to personal injury which, if not avoided, may result in property damage.
Read and understand all instructions. Cluttered benches and dark areas invite accidents. Power tools create sparks which may ignite the dust or fumes. Distractions can cause you to lose control. Never remove the grounding prong or modify the plug in any way. Do not use any adaptor plugs. Check with a qualified electrician if you are in doubt as to whether the outlet is properly grounded. If the tools should electrically malfunction or break down, grounding provides a low resistance path to carry electricity away from the user.
Applicable only to Class I grounded tools. This plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug does not fit fully in the outlet, reverse the plug.
If it still does not fit, contact a qualified electrician to install a polarized outlet. Do not change the plug in any way. Double insulation eliminates the need for the three wire grounded power cord and grounded power supply system.
Applicable only to Class II double insulated tools. There is an increased risk of electric shock if your body is grounded. Water entering a power tool will increase the risk of electric shock. Never use the cord to carry the tools or pull the plug from an outlet.
Keep cord away from heat, oil, sharp edges or moving parts. Replace damaged cords immediately. Damaged cords increase the risk of electric shock. When using an extension cord, be sure to use one heavy enough to carry the current your product will draw.
An undersized cord will cause a drop in line voltage resulting in loss of power and overheating. The following table shows the correct size to use depending on cord length and nameplate ampere rating. If in doubt, use the next heavier gage. The smaller the gage number, the heavier the cord.
