Top customer reviews
I will note that although spring loaded the on-switch latches too easily in the continuous run position. This is not a big deal, for a tool that has such a specialty application, and thus usually much lower shop use time. The fence plate or "foot" is all die-cast aluminum and Makita only provides a narrow slot which is aligned over your work lines. This has not been a limitation for me, but other reviewers expressed some frustration in this regard. Instead I like the large footprint of the fence for its stability, and I will thus deal with the relatively small alignment "aperture".
The machine is somewhat noisy but has plenty of power for clean cuts in hardwoods and various "engineered" woods. I use a vac setup so I can't comment on the dust bag. I've been using D-W biscuits and they fit firmly in the slots cut by the Makita.
In sum, I've been very pleased with the performance of the JP7000 and thus rate it a solid 4.5 stars.
The PJ7000 is simply an updated version of the 3901 with a few updates. (l) it runs quieter (2) the brushes are inside the motor housing making it easier to grip (3) the slide rods are chromed and slide a lot easier with less dust accumulation and (4) the depth adjust knob is a lot easier to read. I have never had any problems with Makita products and this one is no exception. I would recommend it to anyone.
So all that with the Makita are perfect. The angle is precise, the front plate is 90 degree, you adjusting each side in one operation, you can adjust precisely your cut, the angle are easy to set precisely and compare to the other one it's less noisy. Well I'm very happy. For me it's a tool.
Bought this and the Kreg HD Jig to have two alternatives for putting 2x4's together for a work bench I'm building.
Feedback for Makita:
Love that it is Japanese Engineered and USA assembled. The attention to detail is good, but here is where you can improve...
The two plastic levers are replaceable, but should be metal!
The depth guage with 6 settings is IMPOSSIBLE to read. Raised small lettering on chrome is no good! Use the debossed red line method for the dial too. Use color coding for biscuit sizing - I ended up using finger nail polish dots to coordinate with my 3 air tight jars of biscuits. The S, D and Max are meaningless. D looks like the 0! Put a depth chart next to the dial. 0-8mm, 10-10mm, 20-12.3mm, S-13mm, D-14.7mm, Max-20mm.
Design the wrench to fit inside the handle instead of the tool case.
Tool case too small. Forces cord to bend and the most vulnerable place. I suspect this is where a lot of cords will eventually break.
Like that the dust port is replaceable but look at using larger standard PVC elbow joints to improve dust collection (sawdust is cancer causing in California P65).
Sawdust bag can't be on tool when putting into the case. Means users without dust collectors will likely skip using the case :(
PLEASE include some sample 0,10,20 biscuits in a sealed bag with desiccant. Also include a sample wood glue tube. You should be able to get free samples from
Like the spare blade storage!
Case has a plastic fence (set plate) that you use for cutting biscuits in thin pieces of wood. Any chance you can spell out min and max sizes you can join?
Design the manual so I can easily pull out the other language sections I don't want and toss.
Design the manual so it fits in the storage section of the case (trim a couple inches either side).
As a comparison, I tried a Ryobi, low-end joiner originally. The plate fence and the blade had more slop than I would have liked. This resulted in a lot of joining and clamping issues. The Ryobi also bogged down a fair amount. This Makita has zero slop. It sliced through hardwood with ease. It's the difference between an entry-level tool and a pro-tool.
The dust control is not good. None of the dust ever ends up in the bag. And after attaching it to my collection system, I still get a lot of dust exiting out the front. Not sure what is going on there. I have cleaned the output and around the blade, but still likes to kick out more dust than any other tool I own.
