Rotate the shoe out of the way. Use the spanner wrench provided to loosen counterclockwise the blade nut. Depress the spindle lock pin on the top of the gear case to hold the spindle while you unscrew the nut. Remove the blade and have it sharpened or replace it with a new one. Reinstall the blade by reversing the steps above. Be sure blade teeth point counterclock- wise as shown in Figure 4.

Rotate the shoe out of the way. Use the spanner wrench provided to loosen counterclockwise the blade nut. Depress the spindle lock pin on the top of the gear case to hold the spindle while you unscrew the nut.
Remove the blade and have it sharpened or replace it with a new one. Reinstall the blade by reversing the steps above. Be sure blade teeth point counterclock- wise as shown in Figure 4. Adjust if necessary. See "Controls" section. 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. See Applications section under Miter Joints, Figure 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 fence angle can be set simply by loosening the lock knob on the left side of the tool, aligning the protractor scale with the pointer and tightening the lock knob.
The numbers on the depth adjustment knob 0,10,20,M coincide with the three sizes of biscuits shown in Figure 2. 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. Rotate the depth adjustment knob to the desired position and it will "click" into place.
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 wrench provided into the opening as shown in Figure 8. Turn the depth adjustment screw clockwise for less depth and counterclock- wise for increased depth. Each full turn causes a change in depth of 1mm 0. Always check the depth adjustment by first making test cuts in scrap wood.
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. A flat blade screwdriver can be used to rotate the pins as shown in Figure 9. To avoid break- ing 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. Adjustable Direction Elbow See Figure 10 This attachment inserts into the dust exhaust port on the right side at the rear of the base assembly and clicks into place. To remove, pull out firmly. The directional elbow rotates easily to aim the dust in the most convenient direction suitable for the particu- lar application.
Dust Adaptor See Figure 11 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. Dust Bag See Figure 12 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 20 biscuit cuts before filling up.
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.
It is a good rule of thumb to use the largest biscuit size that will physically fit in the application.
DeWalt DW682 Instruction Manual
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 by products. 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 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.
