New Tool: Freud Doweling Joiner

This week we got to see the FDW710K Freud Doweling Joiner. This innovative new tool is a time-saver that allows a woodworker to create perfect 32mm shelf pins without the expense of a large doweling machine. The other benefit is that it is completely portable, and comes at a very reasonable $329 price tag!

In addition to the shelf pins, the dowel joiner allows for strong joints in furniture. This tool will compete with the biscuit joiner and the Festool Domino system.

We also got a look at the new Freud JS104K "Avanti" Joiner. This biscuit joiner has a lot of nice features, and a nice price point at $149.99.

Freud tools are manufactured in Spain and carry a 5-year warranty.
