O.K., I was putting a finish of wiping varnish on SWMBO's orchid table
and got bored waiting on it to dry. So I broke open one of the bags
of Rockler $4.48 biscuits and decided to separate them into piles of
loose, tight, and just right. Baby Bear would be proud.
Here are the test results using a PC577 Type 3 plate joiner:
In a bag of 250 #20 biscuits, there were:
23 too tight
107 just right
I took one of the both broken and loose biscuits, wet it, and inserted
it into the slot. After about 30 seconds, it took a pair of channel
locks and the application of great force to pull the biscuit from the
slot. I'd say the bags are keepers, overall. Repackaged them in
labeled zip-lock freezer bags with a bag of desiccant.
You know, now that I think about it, it wasn't boredom that
precipitated the execution of this precision test procedure, it was
the varnish fumes...<G>
