By Scott Pointon VINE VOICE on February 20, 2005
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 found the quality of these much better than expected after reading some of the reviews. Yes they do swell with humidity but I have the wood stove going in my shop and it keeps the room very dry. In humid summer months I do outside projects. I used about 40 so far with no bad ones and they all fit easily in the slot. It took me 12 years to use the last 1000 box which were Freud biscuits that they don't make any more so I bought these . They are just as good and I am happy with this purchase. Good price too! I only paid two dollars less 12 years ago.

Purchased this big box of biscuits because I have started to use a lot more. I make sure that they are stored in an airtight container, because they will suck up moisture in the air, and start to expand. With the current price of 100 #20 biscuits being around $8 at the home store, this is a no brainer. Fit and placement is accurate, and I haven't had any of my glue joints pop.

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've purchased these from Amazon for many years and found them to be satisfactory, with few broken or misshaped pieces. Just keep them well sealed when not using them. This many biscuits will last me forever, so I usually try to get a few colleagues to share the costs.
