Kelvin Power Tools stock a range of biscuit jointers from Bosch, Festool and DeWalt. These are woodworking tools that are used to join two pieces of wood together. A small TCT circular saw blade cuts a crescent shaped hole (the "mouth") in the opposite edges of two pieces of wood or wood composite panels. An oval-shaped, highly-dried and compressed wooden biscuit (usually beech) is covered with glue, or glue is applied in the slot, and the biscuit is immediately placed in the slot. The two boards are clamped together and the wet glue expands the biscuit, further improving the bond.
Festool manufactures their own, slightly different biscuit jointer called the Domino, which uses a rotary blade. The blade cuts a domino shaped mortise which provides a surface area larger than typical biscuit slots for greater bond strength. The cutter is capable of accommodating a variety of domino sizes.
