I had a Ryobi BJ for some time, and found it to be more trouble than it was worth. Trying to get the fence registered to 90° was a not-so-quick exercise. I went to a PC 557, and can’t recommend it enough for a biscuit joiner. To me a close second would be the Dewalt model. You won’t have to spend near that much on either as used show up frequently. If you opt for a used PC, look at the motor label and try to get a type 3, they had fence problems on some of the earlier ones that were fixed on the later models. Also, the PC came with 2 blades; one a very small one for FF biscuits…used ones are sometimes missing that blade.
