Makita says its new LXJP02 18-Volt Cordless Plate Joiner makes installing trim easier. The tool is portable and maneuverable, yet still has the power to do the job. According to Makita, it can make up to 300 #0 biscuit cuts on a single charge, which translates into 150 joints. It has six depth settings, a rack-and-pinion vertical fence system, and nonmarring rubber inserts on the shoe for “stick.” A thin body and large top handle maximize ease-of-use. The kit has two batteries, a charger, and a bag. Price: $429 (tool only, $219). COO: UK. 714-522-8088. makitausa.com.
