If you were to put together a list of production power tools, a biscuit jointer would most probably feature somewhere at the top. Such is their versatility and ease of use that rapid carcass construction, amongst other things, is in everybody's reach with a few hundred quid to spend. For a minute, forget Dominoes, dowels and pocket hole systems, for these lend themselves to some specific tasks, the biscuit jointer is for many makers the default method for construction. For a machine to be worthy of a place under the bench it doesn't have to have all the whistles and bells, and believe it or not, it doesn't have to operate to within tolerances of less than 0.5mm. All these joints should be regarded as 'first-fix' compared to those produced on a spindle moulder, tenoner or router table where fine adjustments can be set and the operator's physical input is minimal. What hand held machines should be capable of is reliable, repetitive settings over and over again and that's what we found with the GF 22A. These are tools of convenience.
