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.

Craftsman 6 amp plate jointer


Bought this plate jointer about a year ago. Never realized how much i needed one. Dowling jigs are a pain. Have used it to make 2 tables, 2 toy boxes, my new kitchen counter tops (that my wife just loves) and for many misc. Repair projects. First one ive owned so i cant compare but, i gotta say i love this thing. Have used 0, 10, and 20 biscuits and have absolutly no complaints at all. 5 stars. I consider myself an avid diy'er. Im 57 years old and most of my tools are craftsman. They just seem to do the job for a good price. This plate jointer is no exception. Buy it.

Near perfect


From a DIY, weekend user perspective, this biscuit joiner is pretty awesome. I used it for a tabletop glue up on 2x6 Fir and it worked great. Kept the boards even to limit flattening of the boards. Only drawback would be the small dust bag. I had to empty it numerous times but it did hold the dust and shavings before it filled up. Tried hooking it up to my shop vac but the dust port was too small. All in all great tool.

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!
