One of Trend’s newest tools is their T20 Biscuit Jointer. (Their first ever one) I have been testing this for a month now – and its performance? Surely if it’s made by Trend, it must be good? Well it is, it’s great.
It comes in a plastic case with a bundle of No. 0,10 & 20 biscuits, three spanners and a hook spring which aid you to change and setup the blade, a hex key to change the angle of the handle, a lubricant bottle and a dust bag.
It also comes with safety instructions and notes on maintaining the tool. I recommend that you read these before turning on the power tool.
The fence can be tilted from 0° to 90°, it has three preset stops at 0°, 45° and 90°. and is easily adjusted.
It’s supplied with a dust bag (which works.) Although – like all the biscuit jointers I’ve used – it doesn’t collect all the dust and tends to block easily. I always connect it up to my shop hoover which does a much better job.
I’ve had this tool for over a month now and every time I used it I was left with a perfect joint. It only takes a few seconds to setup (adust) and you’re away.
I can’t find any major faults with it & at £139 its a great buy. As biscuit jointers go, you can’t go wrong with the T20.
