This was very easy to use right out ofthe box. Very little set up required. I used about a 1/2 a tub of buscuits and it seems like a quality piece. The handel is very ergonomic. The price was right. I looked at the lower priced and higher price. This worked out great. And it comes with a case. the cord is also plenty long.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, All In One, Sturdy, Accurate
I purchased the Ryobi biscuit jointer because the price was right and it suited the light use I was doing. After using a few times, it is a great tool and serves it's purpose well. The only problem I've had with the kit was not with the tool, but with the advertising and the biscuits. First, the box advertises it includes a "biscuit assortment," when in fact it only includes #10 biscuits and no other size. Second, the #10 biscuits that are included are not standard sized anyway so they don't fit in the slot created by the tool. If you're going to buy the Ryobi biscuit jointer, make sure you buy some Porter-Cable biscuits to go with it.
Easily adjustable. My only gripe would be that it was not totally zeroed in from the factory. I had to adjust the depth so that it would go in deep enough for the biscuit I had it set for. Very minor, just made me question the quality control. Other wise I have used it a couple times so far and really like it.
Pros: Powerful, Easy to Use, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight, easily adjustable
I was doing a project and got out my other brand biscuit joiner which I had only used a few times. I clicked the on switch and nothing happened. I removed the cover and discovered that the springs that held the brushes in place had broken loose from the junky bracket. I replaced that peice of junk joiner with the Ryobi. It was easy to setup and it did a great job. I especially like the hold down handle on the fence. The dust bag was excellent. It caught every bit of the dust. I cut about 6 slots before I had to empty the bag. I think this Biscuit Joiner is well made and will serve me for many years.
Pros: Durable, Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, hold down handle on fence
This is a good biscuit joiner for the price. Make sure you pull the power trigger before abutting the wood for the cut. The blade needs to get in motion first. There's micro adjustment for the depth of the biscuit cut, so do some tests first. The 20 setting did not cut deep enough for the biscuit until I made the micro adjustment. The instruction booklet is very clear on how to do the adjustment.
I've had mine for a couple of years with absolutely no complaints. It's easy to use, makes accurate cuts for joints and is reasonably priced. I do woodworking as a hobby and this is a must for any woodworking shop. Buy this joiner and save yourself some money.
Yeah, I checked the other brands out and bought this one for the price. The surprising thing is that it has performed better than I was prepared for. I had one job in mind I needed it for and now I am biscuit joining everything! (Well, not really, but I could!) Just having it around has made other projects turn out even better. And STRONGER! It is really useful and a great addition to my shop. Sturdy and durable. What more do you need?
This biscuit jointer does exactly what it is designed to do and it does it well. If you want to be picky there is a piece of sandpaper over the mouth for the cutter head that is poorly adhered but some two side tape fixes that and makes for a great tool at an unbeatable price.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight
I have used a really expensive joiner at a college workshop and also a porter cable joiner and I can honestly say I like this one more than the expensive college tool and just as much as the porter cable tool and the Ryobi costs half as much. Most joiners have the motor mounted the opposite direction than this one. I have used both types and actually prefer the setup of the Ryobi because the other joiners are hard to get a good hold on them while also holding the board. This joiner is easy to get good leverage when pusing the blade into the board and it cuts really well. The fence also works really well and I have not had any problems with it at all. I use this tool a lot and it hasn't failed me yet. Normally I think it is always worth paying more for a better tool because you get what you pay for. However, this is not the case with this tool. It performs flawlessly. Don't spend a fortune just to get a fancier brand name, save yourself the money. This is one tool that doesn't lack in quality.
I just bought the Ryobi biscuit joiner yesterday and only used it a little bit, but it works great so far. This is the first joiner I've used, so I don't have anything to compare it to, but it helped me make nice tight joints for a cabinet door. It's easy to use, seems pretty accurate and well-made. I had to make micro adjustments to get the size right, but that's really easy. I definitely recommend testing it out on some practice pieces because mine was set too shallow out of the box. I don't think you can do better for the price. It comes with a hard case that was larger than I expected, but it has a place for everything, including a built-in section with a lid for storing biscuits. I comes with about twenty #10 biscuits. I don't know why they call it an assortment, because they all seem the same to me.
Pros: Powerful, Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight
I was tired of buying batteries for my biscuit cutter. Ryobi seemed to have a lightweight, corded model that meets my needs. Cuts cleanly, and has multiple settings for various size biscuits.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, All In One, Accurate, Good Size & Weight, Light Weight

ryobi biscuit joiner kit
PostedApril 14, 2010
No, I do not recommend this product.
For 99.00 you get what you pay for. I make furniture and do alot of woodworking. This perticular tool might be good for the one time a year tool user. It is difficult to adjust and keep adjusted since the height and angle adjustments are on the same dial. It tends to move after a while and is very difficult to dial in. Not to mention the fact that HD doesn't sell ryobi buscuits so use up what you have and buy the protercable brand. They are labeled differently as well. Then, for an extra 50 you can get a better built biscuit joiner too. However, the 99.00 ryobi table saw is a good introductory level saw and does last.
I'm a big Ryobi fan to begin with. Most of my power tools are Ryobi. I have had great fortune with them. This tool did a great job for me while doing interior trim over the past few weeks. Good solid feel to the tool. Good accurate measurements and adjustments, the tool performed well each and every time. Strong motor, very sharp blade gave me great cuts each and every time. I would gladly buy another one if needed.
Pros: Powerful, Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight
This product is very useful for cutting biscuit holes, exactly what it does, and the set up is good except for the part where the angle and height are on the same lever. But that's really not an issue because the angle locks out at 90/45, so unless you're doing a strange biscuit joining angle (rare to never), you shouldn't notice this issue.
It seems like a very solid tool that will be around for a while. Very pleased Ryobi made this product so solidly. It's heavier than I imagined.
This is my first bisucit joiner and I am very pleased. It's very easy to use and appears to be made very well. I suspect that I will be able to use it for years. I didn't rate it 5 stars for the following two reasons: 1. The biscuits that came with the saw fit VERY tight in the slots, too tight in fact that I didn't use them. 2. When depressing the trigger, there is a slight delay before the blade starts up. Not sure why...it doesn't impede anything so I decided to keep the joiner and live with the minor annoyance.
