Anybody using the Makita 3901 biscuit joiner?
I recently bought the Makita 3901 biscuit joiner on Amazon after reading lots of reviews about it and others like the Porter Cable 557 and Dewalt model. Several people commented about the plastic fence on the PC and the Dewalt got very mixed reviews. The Makita on the other hand got praise for the precise depth gauge and I liked the metal fence vs the plastic on the PC. So I went with the Makita.
Then not two days later I read an article in Wood magazine where they compared all three of these joiners along with several others. Bad timing! The article actually rated the Makita low because, in their words, the fence is sloppy and was impossible to align parallel with the blade. This is the total opposite of the reviews on Amazon so maybe Wood magazine got a lemon?
Just curious if anyone else would care to share their experiences with the Makita 3901. It looks like a great tool but now I'm worried about the fence.
