Lamello Classic C3 Biscuit Joiner
Available in the United States from Colonial Saw, the Lamello Classic C3 plate-joining machine finds and reproduces the exact center groove position of the workpiece. Its multifunctional stop square is always perfectly parallel to the front plate, thanks to dovetail guidance and 1mm grids, and it can be locked in place for safety when the machine is used in the vertical position. Other features of the Classic include a single-piece base plate that has been precisely machined to assure perfect parallelism yet quickly slides open for daily cleaning or cutter replacement. The unit's swiveling front stop has a scale for adjusting the height of the stop square in millimeters and inches and a degree scale to 90 degrees with detents at 22.5, 45 and 67.5 degrees. The depth adjuster has six preset cutting depths for fast, accurate setting of groove depths for biscuits, aluminum knockdown fittings and duplex hinges. The maximum grooving depth is 20mm. Standard accessories include a carbide-tipped six-tooth cutter with scoring teeth, a 4mm slip-on plate, a suction stub for dust collection, a set of maintenance tools, and a carrying case. The optional Lamello Step Memory System uses a scale of 2mm in 0.1mm steps. An optional deflector stub directs sawdust away from the workpiece. A dust hose or bag and adapter are also available.
