I’m like doorslammer. I have used one and think it works awesome. But I don’t/wouldn’t use it enough to push me over the edge to buy it. I end up using a plunge router and a jig from Fine Woodworking with loose tennons, or the true square mortising route (drill press and chisel for me) when I do some Arts and Crafts.

I see it as a hybrid between dowels and a biscuit joiner. It does alighnment but also has (very) real strength unlike biscuits. and the joint cannot rotate.
If it fits the kind or projects you do…go for it and don’t look back.
