Re: All the biscuits I have (Porter Cable brand)

I believe all biscuits made for the biscuit joining operation are "crushed" by the manufacturer. I also know the biscuits expand when water based glue is applied. I have had the biscuit expand enough to prevent assembly when I was careless with the glue application. I had to remove the expanded biscuits with vice grips and a mallet. Apparently these do retain the "expanded" dimension after being glued into the application.
