I chose the PC because it included the small blade for face frame work and a
box of biscuits. I have owned the Dewalt and was very happy with it but
thought I would get the one that did more just in case.
It's a solid, dependable tool that I'd buy again.
Is it a Lamello? No! <G>
The PC can do FF biscuits, but I haven't missed not having that
capability. If you want to use FF's, buy the PC.
If someone reviewed the DeWalt as awful, they don't know how to use a
plate joiner. There are thousands of these in pro finish carpenters
trucks and woodshops around the world. It's a perfectly serviceable
tool, minus the artful precision of a Lamello, or the2nd, small blade
of the PC.
I had settled on either the DeWalt or the Makita 3901. At the Big E WW
show, the Makita was about $5 cheaper (around $120, IIRC) so I bought
it. I am very happy with it, and have since used a friend's DeWalt.
There's very little difference, and I'm sure you would be pleased with
