Ryobi - JM 82 Biscuit Joiner
Hard to use in the vertical orientation
Hard to Use in Vertical Orientation
The Ryobi is well balanced and features a comfortable pistol grip; however, the pistol grip makes the tool harder to use in the vertical orientation. The fence is large and easy to grasp. Its height adjusts on tongue-and-groove ways and is guided by a double rack-and-pinion, but the fence tended to shift up or down when it was locked. The plunge mechanism has too much play, which resulted in sloppy slots and loose biscuits.
