Another great tool in my arsonal

The Craftsman 17539 Biscuit Joiner was the latest purchase that I made to add to my wood working tool arsonal. I have never used a biscuit joiner before and after going over the owner's manual and taking my new toy out to the shop and playing with some scrap wood to tes out my new tool, it didn't take long to get the hang of using it. I know there are higher end biscuit joiners out there, but this one fit my needs and was pretty easy to operate for a green wood worker. This biscuit joiner sports a 6 amp motor with a no load speed of 10,000 RPMs. The joiner will cut slots to accept biscuit sizes of #0, #10, #20 and will cut angles from 0 degrees up to 135 degrees You can cut Butt, Miter, T-Joints, Flat Miter, Bevel, Edge Miter, Edge to face, Edge to Edge, Offset Butt Joints using this biscuit joiner. The biscuit joiner has a 1 1/4" connection to connect your shop vac to for dust collection The dust bag is easy to attatch and just as easy to dump the sawdust out when full. The biscuit joiner has a 10 ft power cord to allow ample work space from the power source. The plug is polorized for safety. The biscuit joiner has a non-marring fence and the unit is double insulated and has a 2- hand grip. My immediate plans for the biscuit joiner is to make some doors with colored plexiglass panels for a hobby room and I will be using it to help make some furniture and some picture frames. The biscuit joiner comes with a plastic blow mold case that protects the biscuit joiner when not being used and it comes with 20 each of #10 biscuits. There is a nice little storage slot that clips shut to hold some of your biscuits. I would have to say that this was worth the money and if you are in the market for a biscuit joiner, I would recommend this one.

One of my favorite tools

This is one of my favorite tools. While the plastic guard is not quite what I'd call an instrument of precision, using workarounds allows you to create precise work pieces. What used to take my MUCH longer using just a drill and dowels now takes me about 10 minutes.

Great Jointer

Bought this a few years ago and I've used it several times. Very easy to line up and use accurately. Well put together and thought out.

Great Tool

I need to join several narrow boards to make a backer board for a large scroll saw projects. The Craftsman 17539 did the job in short order.

One of the easiest to use on the market today

This jointer is a lot like it's cousin, the Craftsman mini jointer. Extremely easy to operate. The adjustable settings are also very easy to use. When used correctly, this jointer is right on the money in accuracy.

Awesome tool

This plate jointer works great. I've been using it with size 10 biscuits on a red oak furniture project and it cuts perfectly every time. Needed only minor depth fine tuning covered clearly in the instruction manual and it has saved me a ton of time. I wish I had bought this several projects ago. Highly recommend

Great jointer for the price.

This tool functions as it is supposed to. Blade makes clean cuts. Fence system repeats the cuts properly. I have used it to make #0 and #20 biscuit joints and they lined up and fit fine.

Best Portable Plate Joiner I have owned

This is the best portable plate joiner I have owned. Bought this one and did not have a single problem with it. I have owned many others and they donot even compare to this one.

Works amazing

I wanted to buy one and use. I use it all the time now. If any one looking for a jointer this is worth way more than 100.00 bucks.

Fine Well-made Tool

I was searching for a plate joiner from different manufacturers and decided on this Craftsman after looking around my woodshop and realizing that my favorite tools over the years were from them. I have used the tool a number of times since I bought it and am satisfied with the results I have had. I recommend this joiner without reservations.

ok for a basic Jointer

Out of the box I had to adjust the depth. on all settings it was not cutting deep enough, and at times you pull the switch and nothing. Not real impressed. I will be returning it.

Nice Machine For The Price

I bought this based on Sears reputation for affordable tools that work well. I was not dissapointed with this joiner. While it is not a "top of the line" tool it works well and seems well built for light to moderate use. I've used it to join boards for a table top and a few cabinet doors. Easy to use and does the job.
