The Zeta P2 is the second generation Zeta fitted with the new P-system depth adjuster. The Zeta offers more than the standard biscuit jointer, with an undercut function to allow for the fitting of special concealed Clamex P connectors that slide into the 'T' slot produced. The connector also clamps, so no additional clamping methods are required. Almost totally concealed, the only visible sign is a single 6mm hole, making it ideal for many applications such as furniture, shop fitting and exhibitions. It is also suitable for solid wood and man-made boards, overcoming many design issues.
Unique to Lamello, the jointer has a special vertical mechanical drive (VMD) engaging when the jointer is at full plunge, moving the cutter up and down in one full turn and only then disengaging to produce the 'T' slot to accept the special Clamex biscuit. The undercut function can be switched off and a 7mm slot will be produced; a 'Bisco' biscuit can then be used. Replace the special blade with a 4mm biscuit blade and use as a standard biscuit jointer. The new P-System depth adjuster has five settings for the ever growing range of Clamex connectors and when used with a standard biscuit jointing blade.
As with all Lamello products, design and build are of the highest quality. Other features include precise plunge with clear depth setting and jointer fences with flush sides to make positioning simple; the fence fits with 'V' grooves for accuracy and clear angle scale.
The jointer is supplied in a Systainer case with a special 7mm blade, assorted fittings, drill bit, drill stop collar, drill guide and suction adaptor.

Worthwhile investment for knock down workI used to use cam locks with cam dowels for knock down products. These are fiddly, ugly, not terribly strong and need the cam dowels to be fitted on site if you want to stack panels.
