I have a b.c. from Woodhaven in addition to my Porter Cable b.j.
because I can join 3/4" wood with it. As long as you have a
router table and are willing to spend more time cutting the slots
it works fine. Be sure to follow the directions, plunging the
work in an arc works much better than just pushing it in. Watch
It seems to burn more when slotting endgrain but that doesn't interfere
with the joint. I should compare the RPM of the router and the PC BJ.
