great product
By greg from peru ny on September 25, 2014
have only used on one project it is built very sturdy
Pros:
has a lot of adjustability to it
Cons:
the gauge to set the plate does not have enough degree markings on it had to guess to set at 67 !/2 degrees.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Porter Cable clogging fix
By jstar from Chicago, Illinois on September 21, 2013
I've owned a PC557 version 3 for over 5 years and it is an excellent tool with one exception. When using the dust bag, the tool is prone to sawdust clogging the dust port.
Frustrated by having to use a coat hanger wire to unclog the machine every 4 cuts, I came up with a modification that has eliminated this problem for me.

All you need is Rockler item #42251 and an 8" plastic wire tie.
Discard the removable tube that normally connects the dust port to the bag. Cut off the small first step on the Rockler #42251 hose adapter. The new opening now matches the diameter of the dust port. Unzip the dust bag. Insert the hose adapter into the bag with the small end protruding from the spring clip opening. Loop the wire tie behind the spring clamp and tighten. Attach the protruding end of the Rockler adapter to the dust port.
Using this fix, I have gone from 4 cuts and a clog to 20 cuts and no clogs on pine, popular, and red oak.

Pros:
Powerful, accurate, good fence
Cons:
When using the dust bag the tool clogs

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Porter-Cable 557 Bisquit Jointer
By L.D. from Idaho on April 13, 2013
High quality I have come to expect from Porter-Cable. Intuitive adjustments. Easy to use and every aspect of the product was what I expected. Good price and free shipping.
Pros:
Excellent fence system, stable when operating.
Cons:
Wish it had come with a small 2" FF blade.

I would recommend this item to a friend.

Great new tool
By Peter Austin from Longview, TX on May 16, 2012
I appreciate the quality built into every Porter-Cable tool. From the heavy duty feel to the quality power cord to the heavy, quality frame, I enjoy using these tools. The adjustments are easy to manipulate and are well labeled for easy identification. This is a tool that will last a lifetime!
Pros:
Quality feel and operation
Comes with protective case
Adjustments are easy and precise
Cons:
Would have been nice to come packed with one smaller blade for smaller size biscuits

I would recommend this item to a friend.

perfect!
By tom from armada, mi on February 27, 2012

I would recommend this item to a friend.
