Questions & Answers

does it have a dust collection port?

Asked by: Billc
Yes. It hooks up to a bag (included) or a vac.

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 stands for "face frame" buscuits. It's the smallest biscuit they make. They are made to use on 1 1/2" stock because the zero biscuits are too long.

Does this require purchasing the 2" blade separately in order to cut FF size biscuits?

This is the first biscuit joiner I have owned so nothing to compare it to, however I have been a woodworker for over 40 years and have a good sense about a tools designated use and end results. Based on that criteria this product rates in the excellent category in my opinion. I saw a number of options some costing considerably more and some less but for my money based on the results I have had don't take a chance on spending too much or spending a few dollars more buy the Porter-Cable. It's ease of use and the quality construction make it an ideal choice, and oh did I mention the results exceeded my expectations. If you are laying up panels as I have done then don't hesitate purchase this product and I will tell you, you won't be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome First of all...It's Robert, not Dolores... Unless you want my 80 year old mom to rate this tool! Fence is great, which is what attracted me to this tool. Motor is great too. Smooth, powerful, porter cable.... The fence is accurate out of the box and adjustments are easy. It's a nice solid piece. The only con is the dust bag. I had to bendthe spring clamp in order for it to hold, and it clogged up after cuts for just 6 #20 biscuits! Going to call PC on this...maybe a defective bag? didn't try a vac yet...

Only gets tricky to feel that the tool is flush with the work piece when cutting into a side with the fence on a 3/4" edge. It would be nice if the tool had an adapter to extend the cutting face downward for increased reference contact.
