I am looking to buy a biscuit joiner and was wanting some opinions on which one is best. The Freud looks to be the best price but I'm not an experienced user. thanks

what are your needs or plans, biscuts are kind of old news:shutup: the new thing is dominos, if you got budget if you rarely use one then any brand will due! i have the older porter cable one, used it maybe a dozen times or so in 15 yrs! you can get them cheap on ebay any model!:thumbsup:

I had never used a biscuit joiner before & Freud was a perfect beginner tool. The instructions are simple because it is simple.

I've got an older DeWalt--It's been a good tool--easy to change settings.


Used it this week to mount light valances under some kitchen cabinets--I don't use it often but when you need it ,It's nice to have.--MIKE--

I also have an older DeWalt that I think was made here in the USA.
I guess I got lucky with mine though, because I’ve read so many bad reviews about them having alignment problems that I don’t think I would recommend it at this point.
It also doesn’t have a setting for face frame [FF] biscuits, if that’s an issue for you.

That Lamello sure is nice, but in that price range, I think you would need to be a professional woodworker that uses it every day... or at least a well-healed sawdust and woodchip enthusiast. :w00t:

Weve got 2 of the Dewalt models.

They work great, very accurate, all the way up until some numnut drops it, hence why we have a second one now :furious:
