Biscuit Joiner

I used to keep the biscuit joiner bolted to my bench.

Cutting slots for biscuits was a snap.

I could loosen the bolts to add shims for thicker wood.

The only drawback was that it was always out. So I took some scrap wood and made this holder...

And now all I have to do is to set the biscuit joiner assembly into the holder and I'm ready to go. A tongue on the front of the assembly drops into the slot on the holder. There are no nuts or bolts to tighten and I can set it up or take it down in about thirty seconds.
