does it have a 2" blade for ff biscuits

Asked by: bobtom
NO FF blade comes with the unit. Go to HD they sell them
Answered by: Granddad

What does the FF stand for related to the 2" blade size, i see in lots of comments?

Many of the owners/ woodworkers commented that this is the only brand that can accept a 2" blade for FF. What does this mean, and what type of project or application does this affect? I am looking to do a wide variety of projects including using it to make cabinets,, bookcases and table tops.
Asked by: ClaysDad
FF = Face Frame for 1-1/2" width, and up.

This product performs perfectly. Used it for the first time to join boards at a 30 degree angle and they joined up flawlessly. Would definitely recommend this product to all, including persons with little experience in woodworking.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not whst I expected Unit looks good, but I took the first one I got back, is it wobbled from the front left to the right back. You could look at the bottom and see it wasn't flat. Spent 2 bills on this, needs to be flat (am I right). Got second one after taking back first one, same thing, so I call Porter Cable customer Service to let them know what's going on. They told me it should be fine, and talked about the fence. I told them that's great if you use fence but unit was made to reference from bottom as well. Didn't seem concerned with problem, so let them know I was taking it back and would go to different manufacturer. Wasted about a whole month on this process. Not sure how well it worked as I never used the thing.

One of the parts (150 on schematic) is plastic and broke. Porter Cable tells me they no longer have the part available, yet it's the model that's still being sold in the retail outlets. This is a REMARKABLY poor degree of support and even though this is the 2nd PC plate joiner I have owned (previous one went up in a garage fire!), and have thought both to work quite well, would not recommend that this product be purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Porter cable plate joiner I haven't had the opportunity to use my new tool yet, however, porter cable always been my favorite. Looking at this tool, I can tell that it is built to last. Because I have not tried it yet, I cannot say anything negative about it, so I will give it a 5 star. I would recommend Porter Cable plate joiner to anybody. So start shopping at Home Depot now and get your plate joiner.
