Comments about Logan Pro Framing Joiner:
Never had a frame joiner but it sure is nice to use and easy to figure out how to use it ! I build distressed wood frames and I have bought this to help make my frame joints easier and more solid. Distressed wood presents its own set of extra problems and this sure helps save time working on frames. The hardwood nails insert very easily even with older well dried out hard wood. Even with used hardwood flooring I use for recycled frames as well. Love this machine !
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Great tool. Easy to use.
from Arvada CO
The Logan Pro Framing Joiner delivered promptly. The product was well made and was easy to use. I made up several frames the day I got it and it worked as advertised. I would recommend this toll for any DIY framer.

I purchased this item to help a relative frame artwork for a one-man art show. The delivery and packaging was first rate - arrived ahead of schedule. The instruction on the setup of the joiner were easy to follow and complete. I followed the instructions on how to use it on the first frame and ran into an issue when I tried to join the two halves of the frame. On the second frame I glued it first and after it set I then used the joiner - a much better method which produced great results. The joiner made quick work of this framing project. I can't want to use it again.

A great tool and very well constructed. Very easy to use
Frame Joiner is the best in class
By Avon -- Expressionist
from Indiana -- not by choice
I am glad I bought this joiner and not the lower priced one; While I haven't used the lower priced one, the ability to drive two corner V connectors will save time when I need two Vs in a frame joint. This has been a breeze to assemble and use. The instructions on using it are a bit confusing and I eventually just put a V in the holder and played with a piece of scrap wood and it was a breeze to figure out after I quit trying to memorize what part was being classed what in the instructions. There are videos but I didn't look those up on the web. If you are a hands on learner, you can use this right out of the box within minutes. If I had a complaint, it would be that for larger or long frames, the supports will need to have extensions added -- but that is the case with any joiner on the market. That means all of them will take some "home engineering" to add extensions to support anything over 30 inches for large paintings you might do.

Using the tool to make frames, works great on smaller ones less than 16x20, but had difficulty holding the frame level when I went to the larger ones.. will have to figure out a holding tool for them.

Does the job!
from Havre de Grace, MD
First off, the joiner is well made; sturdy and finished nicely. Next, the directions are clear. Finally, if you follow those directions the joints stabilize the frame nicely (assuming you are also using glue). One caveat: make absolutely, positively sure that your corners are FIRMLY placed in the v-joint of the Pro Joiner. If you do not take the time to double check this, the v-nails can clip off the edge of the frame, thereby ruining it. Having said that, the Pro Joiner does the job quite well. A solid value.
Great, until the frames get too big.
from Ontario, Canada
Underpinning moldings works great until the size starts going up, heavy molding 2' long starts getting difficult to put into place and clamp in, currently looking for a work around on the size issue.
Better than expected results
By Ron the Photographer

I use the Logan Pro Framing Joiner all the time in my business for making stretchers for my canvases. It is very easy to use and much less expensive than the automatic joiners that sell for thousands of dollars. Before I purchased this joiner I was paying a manufacturer for the stretchers but now I can produce my own for a fraction of the price I used to pay. That puts more money in my pocket when I sell my canvases at art shows.

You get what you pay for
By Black Dog
from South Carolina
Unless you have three hands this is not the easiest tool to use. There is a learning curve as usual for any new tool but the Pro Joiner did not make it easy to make tight corner joins. Trying to hold the two sticks of molding AND manipulate the devise to hold the corner togeher is quite difficult. I also found that holding the sticks made a better joint but when clamping the the cornerr it tended to roll the pieces. The small work surface will not allow one to make good joins for frames over say 12" Even those are hard to handle. Extension arms on this tool would be helpful. My advise is unless you make picture frames for small works don't buy this. Spend the extra $ and do it right. I bought a professional manual floor model for under 1K. Love it!
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
