Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by One of the best biscuit joiners available. I recently purchased this joiner to work on a very large project. After joining more than 100 boards I can honestly say the tool works extremely well. The only drawback is the dust collection bag. It's way too small for the tool. I recommend adding a vacuum hose to it if you're going to use it extensively. This is why I only gave it 4 stars out of 5. February 15, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Nice machine I bought mine at a garage sale the othe day paid $20 for it. It's like brand new and works great it's also very well made no cheap parts to break. August 19, 2013
