Biscuit Jointers

It's time to get a new one and I'm not sure what one to get.  I've been using a Royobi for the past 7-8 years I've just gotten tired of it, it seems to be really loose in its fitt with the bisquits.

I've been thinking of getting the Porter Cable but I'm wanting to know what some of you all think.

 

Thanks for any and all thoughts.

Re: Biscuit Jointers

I got me a Rioby not too long ago and am very pleased on how it works.

 

And it didn't break the bank either.

Re: Biscuit Jointers

Scott,  I have the Porter Cable 557 It is the only one that uses the extra small FF biscuits to the best of my knowledge.  It also allows you to index from the outside of a mitered corner for alignment by adjusting the fence to 135°.  Back when I got mine if was one of few that did that, I think most do now.

Re: Biscuit Jointers

The only other one close (and not very, at that) would be the Dewalt, and you might find a really good buy on a used one. But the PC is the only one to do the FF biscuits, a feature I've used several times and really appreciate.

Re: Biscuit Jointers

I have found that the Lamillo biscuits fit the slots better than the ones they sell at Lowes.
