Expert tips: What should you pay attention to when working with a biscuit jointer?
Since the Einhell cordless biscuit jointer already comes with a milling cutter blade, you can start working immediately. Nevertheless, you should always make sure that you are using the right suitable milling cutter blade. This differs depending on the material or type of wood. When purchasing additional milling cutters, make sure that they are recommended for the material for which they are used and that they are compatible with the milling cutter blade holder on the cordless biscuit jointer (diameter 22 mm).
Since you can use the six-stage milling depth setting to determine the milling depth depending on the dowel size, you should also know how to select the right type of flat dowel. For example, a Type 0 flat dowel is recommended for very thin boards with a thickness of at least 10 mm. Type 10 is suitable for wood pieces up to 15 mm thick and Type 20 is generally used for thicker workpieces from 15 mm thick. With the other three possible milling depths of the cordless biscuit jointer, you can determine the depth of a groove to be milled. A maximum milling depth of 20 mm is possible.
During milling, wood dust and chips are swirled up. Therefore, when working with a biscuit jointer, you should always work with safety goggles, a dust mask and, ideally, ear protection, because when milling in wood things can get noisy.
If you do a lot of work with wood and build your own furniture, you won't want to be without the cordless biscuit jointer.
