Overview
DUST EXHAUST PORT
You have purchased a precision woodworking tool. The function
of the plate joiner is to enable you to make extremely strong and
accurate joints in wood and wood byproducts.
The tool works by a plunging action to precisely cut crescent
shaped slots for the placement of flat wooden dowels or “biscuits”
like those shown in Figure 2.
The various adjustments on the patented base/fence assembly will
enable you to make virtually any biscuit joint imaginable. The tool
may be further enhanced by some simple jigs and fixtures that can
be easily made. Some of the more common biscuit joinery
applications are shown in Figure 3 and are discussed in detail in
the applications section of this manual.

The Controls
The heart of your plate joiner is the base/fence assembly. All of
the controls that let you make a variety of precision cuts are located
on this assembly. Take a few minutes to become familiar with the
various controls.
ALWAYS TURN OFF AND UNPLUG PLATE JOINER
BEFORE MAKING ANY ADJUSTMENTS.
R
1. ADJUSTABLE FENCE
The adjustable fence provides a sturdy, precise reference surface
to determine the point at which the slots for the biscuits will be cut.
Its adjustable height feature allows you to position biscuit slots as
close as 3/16" (4.76mm) and as distant as 1-3/8" (35mm)
FIG 4
3
measured from the workpiece surface to the centerline of the blade
(see Figure 6). The adjustable angle feature allows a full range of
settings from 0° to 90 as well as a reverse 45° bevel which allows
outside registration on miter joints. (See Applications section under
Miter Joints, Figure 27.)
The height adjustment is accomplished by first loosening the lock
knob on the right side of the fence and then rotating the knurled
adjustment knob until the desired height is reached (see Figure 5).
Tightening the lock knob will then automatically align the fence
parallel to the blade and lock it in position. The vertical scale and
pointer located directly under the lock knob can be used to assist in
setting this height. The scale readings indicate distance from the
blade centerline to the fence surface when the fence is set at 90°
(see Figure 6). If the depth scale ever needs to be adjusted, loosen
the two screws that secure the scale and move the scale until the
pointer is indicating the proper reading (see Figure 6).

FIG 6
2. PLUNGE DEPTH ADJUSTMENT
The depth of cut can be set to match the dimensions of the
particular size biscuit you will be using. The numbers on the depth
adjustment knob (0,10,20,M) coincide with the three sizes of
biscuits shown in Figure 2. The letter M stands for the maximum
depth capacity of the tool which is 20mm (25/32"). This depth is
obtainable only with a new blade and by backing out the fine
adjustment screw (see next section).
NOTE: The M setting has been provided for future use and will not
be necessary for most biscuiting operations. To select a depth,
align the appropriate number with the red mark scribed in the
tool’s housing, as shown in Figure 7. Rotate the depth adjustment
knob to the desired position and it will “click” into place.

3. FINE DEPTH ADJUSTMENT
You may encounter situations where you want to leave a little
looseness in your joint so that you can move it slightly before the
glue sets up. For these instances a fine depth adjustment has been
provided. To adjust, you must first raise the adjustable fence to its
uppermost position. Then insert the T20 torx screwdriver provided
into the opening as shown in Figure 8. Turn the depth adjustment
screw clockwise for less depth and counterclockwise for increased
depth. Each full turn causes a change in depth of 1mm (0.04").
Always check the depth adjustment by first making test cuts in
scrap wood.

4. ALIGNMENT
If the adjustment fence becomes misaligned to the blade, use the
following procedure to realign: With the two support attachment
screws (located just above the anti-slippage pins) loosened,
adjust the support position to be flush to the bottom of the base.
Then carefully retighten the attachment screws (see Figure 9).
R
5. ANTI-SLIPPAGE PINS
Plate Joiners tend to slide to the right with respect to the workpiece
when making a cut. This tendency is increased with a dull blade
or when plunging very rapidly. Anti-slippage pins have been
provided to reduce this tendency and are located on the front
registration surface on either side of the blade opening slot. When
making some joints, you may wish to retract the anti-slippage pins
so as not to scratch your workpiece in a visible area. For this
purpose, simply rotate the anti-slippage pins approximately 1/6 of
a turn and they will retract back behind the front registration
surface. A flat blade screwdriver can be used to rotate the pins as
shown in Figure 9.

6. ADJUSTABLE FENCE SQUARENESS
To adjust the squareness of the adjustable fence to the front of the
unit, loosen the angle indicating pointer screw, and while holding a
square in contact between the adjustable fence and the front of
the unit, tighten the lock knob. Carefully place the indicator against
the stop on the 90 degree end of the angle scale and retighten the
screw. When the angle indicator is against the stop, the pointer
will indicate 90 degrees (see Figure 10).
FIG 11
7. BOTTOM REGISTRATION SURFACE
For certain applications, you will want to use the bottom surface of
the plate joiner for alignment. When using the bottom registration
surface, the adjustable fence should be set to 0° and the height
setting is unimportant. This surface is used primarily when making
‘T’ joints (see applications section). The distance between the
centerline of the blade and the bottom registration surface is fixed
at 3/8" (9.5mm) which allows centering on 3/4" (19mm) thick
stock. The 3 red marks on the bottom registration surface indicate
the centerline (or the deepest point) of the biscuit cut and the
approximate width of a #20 biscuit so that you’ll know where the
edge of the blade is and can prevent breakthrough. To avoid
breaking through the workpiece, align the shoe so that neither
outside mark extends beyond the end of the workpiece. If either
side does, there is a good chance that the blade will break through
the surface and ruin your work.

B. Dust Adaptor (See Figure 12)
This attachment, when inserted as described above, allows the
use of several common sizes of vacuum hose to be attached for
direct vacuum pick-up of the dust.
C. Dust Bag (See Figure 13)
The dust bag provided fits snugly over the dust adaptor
described above. To empty the bag, open the zipper underneath
and dump dust out.
NOTE: When the bag becomes full, the dust will back-up into the
adaptor and the exhaust port on the right rear of the tool. To
clean out, turn off and unplug the tool and remove packed dust.
The bag will hold the dust generated from approximately 70 to
100 #20 biscuit cuts before filling up.

FIG 14
General Operation
Plate joiners are primarily used for making cabinetry and furniture,
joining millwork or other similar applications where a strong,
accurate joint is required in wood or wood by-products. There are
literally hundreds of variations of joints that can be made with
your Plate Joiner. We will limit our discussion to six basic joints that
can be used to build on and adapt to your own applications.
The following are some basic set-up steps that will apply to all
biscuit joints.
PROTRUDING
BISCUIT END
(Trim off with saw
and sand smooth)
1. BISCUIT SIZE SELECTION
As mentioned earlier, the three biscuit sizes are #0, #10 and #20.
It is a good rule of thumb to use the largest biscuit size that will
physically fit in the application. Unless you are joining narrow face
or picture frames or using 1/2" or thinner stock, you will find the #20
7
biscuit size to suit most applications. After selecting the biscuit size,
set the depth adjustment knob to the corresponding size (see
Controls section). Also, be sure the fine depth adjustment is
correctly set by first testing in a scrap piece. This is extremely
important as you do not want to discover during glue-up that your
biscuit slots are not quite deep enough.
FIG 15
2. BISCUIT LOCATION AND LAYOUT
Generally, biscuits may be spaced and located at your discretion.
For edge joints, a good rule of thumb is to space biscuits every
6-10 inches on center. It is further recommended that biscuits be
placed so that the centerline of the end biscuits is 2-3 inches from
the end of the workpiece. When joining face frames or picture
frames where the workpiece is narrow, you may have to choose the
smaller biscuit sizes to keep from “breaking out” on the end of the
joint. Breaking out should be avoided if possible, but if not you can
assemble the joint and trim off the exposed biscuit tip after the glue
sets (see Figure 14). When working with material up to 1" thick, we
advise to use a single biscuit located in the approximate center of
the material thickness. If thicker stock is to be joined, you may
choose to use 2 biscuits across the thickness for greater strength
(see Figure 15). Biscuit locations should be marked by first
positioning the mating pieces exactly as they are to be assembled.
Next, make a mark at 90° to the joint interface across both pieces at
the desired biscuit locations (see Figure 16). See Application
section for more specific information on joint layout. The marks you
make will then be aligned with one of the center registration marks
on the tool, again, depending upon your specific application.
1" OR GREATER STOCK THICKNESS
FIG 16
3. MAKING THE CUT
Prior to making any cut, be sure that all fence adjustments are set
and lock knobs are tight. Also, be sure you have selected the proper
depth setting. Clamp your workpiece firmly and align the plate
8
FIG 17
2"-3"
joiner’s center registration mark with your layout mark. Turn on the
tool and let the blade come up to full speed (approximately
1 second). Grasping the switch handle and auxiliary handle and
positioning the fence firmly and squarely against the workpiece,
plunge the blade until it bottoms against the stop. Continuing to hold
the tool squarely and firmly, allow the return spring to retract the
blade from the work and then release the switch to shut the tool off.
It will take some practice to obtain a “feel” for the tool to produce
accurate joints, so practicing in scrap wood first is advisable.
6"-10"
4. JOINT ASSEMBLY
After your joints are cut, you may wish to trial fit everything together
before gluing. When you are satisfied with your joints, evenly
spread any good quality woodworking glue in each slot as well as
on the mating flat surfaces of your joint. Place biscuits in the slots,
assemble the joint and clamp until dry. For a biscuit joint to be most
effective, it is important that the biscuits themselves be in contact
with the glue. This is because the biscuits absorb the moisture in the
glue and expand to form a tight joint.
FIG 18
R
Applications
1. EDGE TO EDGE JOINTS (See Figure 17)
This is the simplest to make and most common joint for the plate
joiner. Follow the steps below to produce this joint.
A. Prepare the workpieces and lay them on a work surface exactly
as they are to be assembled.
B. Spacing biscuits 2-3" in from the ends and 6-10" apart, layout
the biscuit centers.
C. Set up the plate joiner by first selecting the proper depth setting.
Set the fence to 90°. Set the height adjustment to position the
biscuit in the approximate center of the stock thickness.
FIG 19
3/16" MINIMUM
3/16" MINIMUM
3/16" MINIMUM

D. Clamp the workpiece and position the tool so that the center
indicator mark lines up with the first layout mark (see Figure 18).
Turn on the tool and make the plunge cut. Retract the tool and
release the trigger to turn the tool off. Repeat for each layout mark.
E. Glue, assemble and clamp the joint.
F. For stock thicker than 1", you may wish to use double biscuits
at each location. Set the height adjustment to allow at least
3/16" of stock between the biscuit and the edge of the work
surface. Make all cuts at this fence setting before readjusting
the fence for the lower cuts. Again, there should be at least
3/16" of stock between the biscuit and the outside wall and
between the biscuits themselves (see Figure 19).
FIG 20
FIG 21
2. FRAME JOINTS (See Figure 20)
Frame joints are an ideal application for biscuit joinery. With the
plate joiner you can create a very strong, precise joint that is much
faster to make than a dowel or mortise and tenon joint. Figure 20
shows two types of frame joints. Follow the steps outlined below.
A. Arrange the workpieces on a flat work surface exactly as they
are to be assembled.
B. Select the proper biscuit size based on the length of the joint.
(If the frame pieces are too narrow for a #0 biscuit, you will have
to allow the biscuit tip to protrude slightly and then trim it off after
the joint is dry (see Figure 14).
C. Lay out the biscuit locations.
D. Set up the tool by selecting the depth that corresponds to the
chosen biscuit size. Lock the fence at 90° and adjust the fence
height to center the biscuit on the stock thickness.
E. Clamp the workpiece and position the Plate Joiner to make the
first cut (see Figure 21).
R
FIG 22
10
FIG 23
F. Turn on the tool and make the plunge cut.
G. Repeat for each layout mark.
H. Glue, assemble and clamp the frame.
3. CORNER JOINTS (See Figure 22)
Corner joints are another common and excellent application for
biscuit joinery. Follow the procedure below.
A. Arrange the workpieces exactly as they are to be joined.
B. Select the biscuit size and layout the biscuit locations.
C. Set up the tool by selecting the proper depth setting, adjusting the
fence to center on the stock thickness and setting the angle to 90°.
D. For this joint, you will make cuts into the edge of one workpiece
and the face of another. The edge cut is performed the same
as for edge to edge joints. The face cut is made by clamping the
workpiece and aligning the tool as shown in Figure 23. Turn the
tool on, make the plunge cut and repeat for each layout mark.
E. Glue, assemble and clamp the joint.
R
FIG 24
4. OFFSET JOINTS (See Figure 24)
You may wish to have a deliberate offset between two workpieces.
This is easily accomplished with your plate joiner by performing the
following steps.
A. Arrange the workpieces as they are to be assembled and layout
the biscuit locations.
B. Set up the tool by selecting the proper biscuit size and adjusting
the fence angle to 90°. Select the workpiece that will be set back
and adjust the fence height to center the cut within the thickness
of that piece.
C. Clamp the workpiece, align the tool and make the plunge cut.
11
D. Next, adjust the fence up by an amount equal to the desired
offset. Use the scale and pointer located on the right side of the
tool under the fence lock knob.
E. Clamp the second workpiece, align the tool and make the
plunge cut.
F. Glue, assemble and clamp the joint.
FIG 25
5. EDGE MITER JOINTS (See Figure 25)
Edge miters are most commonly used in box structures or for
making multisided pedestals where you would like to hide the end
grain. Once again, biscuit joinery is an outstanding method to use
both for added strength as well as ease of assembly. Follow the
steps below to assemble a 90° joint.
A. Position the workpieces as they are to be assembled and layout
biscuit locations on the outside of the joint.
B. Set up tool by first setting fence angle to 90°. Make the fence
adjustment such that the biscuit is located toward the inside of
the joint where the material is thicker, then select the biscuit size
so that the blade does not protrude through the outside wall
when the cut is made (see Figure 26).
C. Clamp the workpiece and align the tool as shown in column in
Figure 27.
D. Turn on the tool and make the plunge cut.
E. Glue, assemble and clamp the joint.
F. For joints other than 90° see outside registration column
Figure 28 for proper fence angle setting.
The above method will produce a joint where the outside surfaces
of the joint are aligned. If you wish to produce a joint where the
inside surfaces are aligned, use the following procedures for a 90°
joint.
A. Position workpieces as they are to be assembled.

6. T-JOINTS (Figure 30)
Biscuit joining is a viable alternative to dadoing when making a
T-joint. T-joints are most commonly used when attaching shelves
to the sides of a case. The method described below will work if your
shelf material is at least 5/8" thick.
A. Place the workpieces on a work surface exactly as you will be
assembling them in the form of an upside down “T.” Mark
lightly along the joint where the top of the shelf is to end up
(see Figure 31). Mark biscuit locations at the joint interface on
the shelf piece only.
B. Lay the shelf down on the mating workpiece. Clamp the two
workpieces together and to the work surface in this position
(see Figure 32).
C. Set up the tool by selecting the proper biscuit size and setting
the adjustable fence angle at 0°.
D. Using the bottom registration surface, align the tool with the
biscuit location marks and make a vertical and a horizontal
plunge cut for each biscuit location as shown in Figure 33.
E. Glue, assemble and clamp the joint.

Double Insulation
DOUBLE-INSULATED tools are constructed throughout with TWO
separate “layers” of electrical insulation or one DOUBLE thickness
of insulation between you and the tool’s electrical system.
Tools built with this insulation system are not intended to be
grounded. As a result, your tool is equipped with a two-prong plug
which permits you to use extension cords without concern for
maintaining a ground connection. See page 15 for more extension
cord information.
NOTE: DOUBLE-INSULATION does not take the place of normal
safety precautions when operating this tool. The insulation system
is for added protection against injury resulting from a possible
electrical insulation failure within the tool.
CAUTION: When servicing all tools, USE IDENTICAL REPLACEMENT PARTS. Repair or replace damaged cords.

Motor Brushes
Before using an extension cord, inspect it for loose or exposed wires,
damaged insulation, and defective fittings. Make any needed repairs or
replace the cord if necessary.
DeWalt uses an advanced brush system which automatically stops
the drill when the brushes wear out. This prevents serious damage
to the motor.

Underwriters Laboratories (U.L.) (C.S.A. in Canada). If the
extension will be used outside, the cord must be suitable for outdoor
use. Any cord marked as outdoor can be used for indoor work. The
letters “WA” on the cord jacket indicate that the cord is suitable for
outdoor use.
An extension cord must have adequate wire size (AWG or
American Wire Gauge) for safety, and to prevent loss of power and
overheating. The smaller the gauge number of the wire, the greater
the capacity of the cable, that is 16 gauge has more capacity than
18 gauge. When using more than one extension to make up the
total length, be sure each individual extension contains at least the
minimum wire size.
To determine the minimum wire size required, refer to the chart
below.
