THE BASE ASSEMBLY
See Figures 25 - 27.
After extended use, wood particles and resin may build up
inside the base assembly of your biscuit joiner and clog
the path for wood particles going into dust bag. Wood
particles packing up in this area not only defeats the dust-
less feature of your biscuit joiner, it also makes cutting
biscuit slots more difficult.
Unplug the biscuit joiner.
Remove the dust bag.
Place the biscuit joiner upside down on a workbench.
Using a screwdriver,
remove the four screws and
washers securing the shoe. Remove the shoe.
Remove the blade. See "Replacing the Blade."
With the blade removed, place the biscuit joiner right
side up. Using a pair of needle nose pliers, stretch and
release the springs from the tabs on the bearing plate.
