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.

Fantastic tool for the price!!!

Sure you can spend much more for this kind of tool. They may even make it easier to join your types of joints, but I am rating this tool on the quality you get from the price. Most people have little knowledge of woodworking so they need much more help than an expert would need. In reality you could use z four inch skil saw to do same job, but that's why we buy this tool..., Make things a little faster.

Not deep enough

|

Finally got around to using this. Went for the #10 setting. Cut fine and easy enough. But the provided biscuits were either too wide or the machine didn't cut deep enough. I couldn't get a flush fit between the two pieces of molding. I had to sand down the biscuits considerably

Nice quality

|

It seems to be a good quality power tool that I hope provides many years of service. I ordered it online and was surprised at the heft of the jointer. I have always had good experiences with Craftsman power tools.

Easy to use...

I love this plate jointer, it's much better than my last one.

The Craftsman plate jointer is fast and easy to use. The cutting is accurate. Once the biscuits and glue are added, you clamp the pieces together and you're done!

A GREAT tool for your woodworking needs!

|

So thrilled to have this tool in our garage. We are remodeling a 1942 Mill house and repurposing all the heart pine boards we removed from the walls, ceiling and floor. My husband and I are making a barn style door for our bedroom closet. This biscuit joiner has been a joy to use and time saver. I recommend any one doing woodworking to have this tool.
