Trend 342X1/2TC 1/2in Pro. Biscuit Jointer Set
This Trend 342 router cutter set (full code: 342X1/2TC) is a 1/2 inch cutter set for the biscuit jointing of timber, man-made fibre and particle board using a router. The set includes three sizes of bearing which set the correct depth of cut for the three sizes available.
- Shank diameter: 1/2 inch
- Cutter Diameter: 40 mm
- Cutting depth: 4 mm
- Bearing 1 diameter: 15 mm
- Bearing 2 diameter: 19 mm
- Bearing 3 diameter: 23 mm
A slightly longer cut than the length of the biscuit is required to allow some lateral play for easy alignment during assembly. A water based glue (PVA) is used with the biscuits which will expand as the moisture is absorbed, and boards should simply be clamped together until glue is cured. For larger boards, biscuits can be doubled up by making two passes.
