Product Description

Amazon.com

Designed to be consistent and uniform, the Porter-Cable 5553 No. 20 Biscuits do not swell until they soak up water-based glues. This process ensures a more hardy wood joint and reliable results. Comprised of flattened beech wood, these handy little biscuits conform with slots made by all standard plate joiners. And since every package contains 1,000 biscuits, you'll always have plenty on-hand.

For years I have been using these P-C biscuits for building tabletops and panels in various furniture projects. Since I work with alot of 3/4" - 5/4" wood, I use these #20 biscuits more than the smaller #10 and #00.

I have not had any significant amount of "bad" biscuits from Porter-Cable. There is an occasional thick one - meaning it either didn't get compressed as it should have or it swelled from moisture - but these are few and far between.

Basically, I have had nothing but good luck with these so I highly recommend them!

If you want to use biscuits that are uniform and will work everytime, then get these. Porter Cable biscuits are, in my opinion, the best made. They do not swell prematurely, thereby preventing you from getting your project together. Nor do they come out of the box in a variety of non-uniform thicknesses. Each biscuit is within strict tolerances of the next biscuit. I have used the Lemello biscuits and have found that they are not as uniform or well made as those by Porter Cable. Additionally, I have used biscuits from Lowes and Home Depot (Wolfcraft?) and have found that those, too, are not uniform to the same tolerances as the Porter Cable biscuits.

I purchased this box of 1,000 biscuits which came in 4 bags. I used to buy them at Home Depot and Lowes in the clear cylinder. This 1,000 pack is a much better buy and I don't have to be as conservative with them. This pack has lasted me a long time and prove to provide the strongest joint. I read in the reviews that someone wasn't satisfied about the quality of the biscuits, so I inspected them for defects and didn't find any. I am certain that these are the best buy for cost effectiveness and quality.

I work for a pro cabinet shop. These biscuits are just as good as others we've used, and better than many, as far as consistent size and quality. They cost about half what we were paying for another high quality brand.

I like the #20 biscuits best for all-around woodworking. Sized just right and allow about 1/8" play in the joint for proper alignment. Good consistent quality in this product.

I use biscuits now and again, but I always seem to run out just when I need them. These are top quality biscuits and 1,000 at this price, I'll never run out.
