^ Souped-Up Plate Joiner

On many plate jointers the fence is either flimsy, hard to adjust accurately or only cuts at 90° and 45°. DeWalt's DW682K Plate Joiner solves these problems with a machined aluminum fence that's precisely calibrated and easy to adjust.

Also it hits separate lock knobs for tilt (0° to 90°), and height adjustment so you won't disturb one setting when adjusting the other. It's got a bear of a motor—at 6.5 amps the most powerful we've seen. (last Price: $340) DeWalt Industrial Tool Co., tX>pt. AWT. 626 Hanover Pike, Hampstead, MD 21014, (M)) 433-9258.
