I did a lot of shopping and reviewing of biscuit joiners before buying this one and glad I did! I build furniture and this is one of the best choices I've made in tools! It's easy to use right out of the box. Has great safety features, which is good because this thing could cause serious damage. All the adjustments are easy and stays adjusted. If I could find one thing about it that could use some improvement is the bed is a wee bit short. A couple of times I didn't press down hard enough on it, or clamp it, and the blade shifted slightly during the cut. But that's more operator error. All in all it's a great tool and creates really accurate joints.

The power button is located in such a way that when you push the power button with the thumb, and move the machine in for the cut, the fingers will not let you go all the way. I think my hand is quite normal. I have to push the power button and then move my hand back to the back of the body to make the cut. That means I lock the power on and leave it on until I have made all my cuts. That seems to be the only issue that I can find. The machine is quiet and works great. I love having the nice case so I can put all the parts in and not have to figure out where I stored the attachments and blade changing tool..

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Pleased I agree the dust collection could be better, however that is not important to me therefore I gave it 5/5. It is a solid machine with an reasonably accurate fence. It it not accurate to 1/64 as I only check to 1/32. It is all in your setup time. Check and recheck and you will get what you want...most of the time! I have thought about other machines at 3x cost but don't think it is worth it for the volume of work I do. I am pleased with my purchase after more than 4 years with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High Quality Tool This is a very high quality tool. I have always had good results with Makita products so didn't even bother comparing prices with other brands. I bought this in store and was pleasantly surprised to see that they had several in stock. I decided that I needed this tool in the middle of a project so first went to the Farm and Fleet store near me as they have a good selection of power tools, only to learn that they had no flat plate joiners of any brand in stock. The Home Depot store added a few extra miles to my trip, but it was worth it. I will probably just go directly to Home Depot the next time I need a power tool as they usually have a good selection of brand name tools at competitive prices. The only suggestion I have to improve the tool would be to add a light at the index marker line as it can be a little hard to see. I have two Makita drills that have such a light, so I know that Makita could to it. BTW, I was very surprised to find that the dust/chip collection works very well, which is an added bonus.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets All Choked Up Joiner cuts well, but you only get to cut 3 or 4 slots and the chip ejection port clogs. Chip bag must be removed and chips poked out of the small passage. A real pain and a disappointment because Makita is usually my go-to brand. My recommendation for purchase and rating of "good" is qualified by the necessity of hooking up a vacuum dust/chip collection system. Adjustments and controls work fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Accurate, easy, solid construction The PJ7000 has worked great for me; it's well-designed, easy to use, and cuts like a dream. Initially I was going to buy a leading competitor's plate joiner because I was unable to see an example of the PJ7000. I'm happy I decided to take a chance. The bulk of the tool is metal, too.
