    Make sure your router cutter is sharp. The worktops knock the b****s out of them. this can make the worktop fluff a bit so lightly sand the two faces to be joined.
    Don't know about the biscuit jointer, I use a cutter in the router and have had no problems.

    sometimes the worktops can have a slight curl on them so the only way you can get them anywhere near is to get front and middle nice and flush and see if you can bend the back up/down. buscuits can sometimes hinder as you have no play if the buscuit joints are slightly out and even with a good buscuit jointewr most of the time you are trying to buscuit chipboard and also it is not alwaysa possible to use buscuits depending on the configuration. if no buscuits i use rapid polyurethane glue to centre and bottom of joint leaving compound on top.
  5. Cheers sid,but your spelling is *****!Thought u were dead cos its been quiet on here, or have u been"chatting" to the sparks again!Top advice though.:)
