Ned B from Athens, NY Posted January 31, 2011
This joiner is easy to set up, easy to use, and the best part - easy to change cutting blades. Being able to change from 2" to 4" blades is of great value to me.

William P from Fayetteville, AR Posted August 31, 2009
Having research biscuit cutters I was leaning toward the high end units for the accuracy and operation, but after reading the reviews both here and at other web sites and given the cost it was difficult to pass up. I can say that it certainly lives up to the earlier reviews and did I mention the price was right?

Christian B from McLean, VA Posted August 4, 2009
I did a fair amount of research on comparable models before I purchased my biscuit joiner. I am so glad I did. The PC model #557 was awesome right out of the box. I was 90% complete with a side table I was making out of cherry. Last step was to join the 4 pieces for the table top and 3 for a lower shelf. I rushed home, opened the box and was making cuts within minutes. It was very intuitive, easy to adjust and cut very clean recesses. All of the movable parts locked tightly into place for great repeat cuts. I found that the dust bag filled up fairly quick, but I'm not sure a bigger bag is the answer (I probably cut too fast).I have found a ton of uses for it and sometimes even look for excuses to use it to reinforce already-ample joints. Definitely worth the money and has yet to show any major signs of wear. Nice job Porter-Cable. Nice job.
