Very nice fit and well made.
This mobile base makes moving of a very heavy jointer easy as pushing a shopping cart, and safely as well.

Must have for the PJ-882HH
The PJ-882HH jointer is heavy and relatively award to move without a mobile base. The stand rolls really well on flat or uneven surfaces. There are two caster locks and thumb screws on the rear wheels, making it extremely solid when parked. If you are having an issue with any sliding because of very slick floors: I would recommend rolling on to neoprene pads. The PJ-882HH has a rear access panel for the belt, motor and secondary on/off box. This stand is a must if you plan on parking your jointer against a wall.

If you do not have access to a ceiling lift, or a fork lift. You can rent a pallet jack and engine lift. To get your jointer on this stand you will need the following...

- Pallet jack
- Blocks of wood. I used 8 - 4"x6"x36" for the 2 outer pallet skidson each side and 2 - 2"x4"x36" to raise the level of the pallet jack for the second stack of 4"x6" (you will use these to block up the crate with the pallet jack, so the engine lift will roll under)
- 2 ton engine lift (because of how far the beam needs to extend, I placed my beam setting on 1/2 a ton for the furthest extension)
- 2 4ft double looped towing ropes
- 2-3 large shackles
- 1 person to spot
- Common sense

I jacked up the 8ft pallet and inserted my 4 blocks (6" side on the floor, your only blocking up 4" at a time), making sure the two center blocks could clear the width of my engine stand base. CAREFULLY lower your jackstand and place 2 2"x4"x36" boards on the runners and raise the pallet again, sliding your next set of 4"x6"x36" on top. That gave me enough clearance to roll my engine stand under the pallet.

Unbolt the unit from the pallet. Then rig up your strapping to the provided posts on the PJ-882HH Jointer. Have the mobile base ready and in your spotters reach. Hoist the PJ-882HH above the pallet and get your spotter to move the pallet. Then have your spotter twist the jointer 90 deg and slide the mobile base under the jointer in the correct orientation. MAKE SURE THAT THE CURVE OF THE JOINTER IS ORIENTED TO THE CURVE OF THE MOBILE BASE.

SLOWLY rotate the hydraulic release valve when your spotter is ready with the mobile base. NEVER PUT ANY PART OF YOUR BODY BETWEEN THE JOINTER AND THE BASE! If you are not quite lined up with the base, stop the decent with the hydraulic release, then realign. Once you get the jointer in the boundaries of the base, you can slowly lower all the way. If you want to position it perfectly, you can raise the engine stand slightly and reposition. Don't forget to support the engine stands boom arm with your hand when you release to remove the rigging.

It is super easy if you have never done it before. Just practice with the engine stand, raising and lowering it with the release valve before you start.

PJ-882 HH Powermatic Jointer Mobile Base
If you have a Powermatic PJ-882 HH Jointer at 700+ pounds and you are not going to set it up the shop in a permanent spot this mobile base is the only way to go. I need to move big machines in and out of the main floor of my shop because I work on 15 to 20 foot wood canoes. That means having ample space to move canoes in and out. The PJ 882 HH has a base that is not square so this mobile base is made for the machine. It has wheel locks that make the jointer solid for use, but unlock easily so you can roll it out of the way, when not in use.

Great Product!
This base works perfectly. It fits the jointer with no issues. It allows me to roll the tool around without any problems. Would purchase again, and will definitely recommend to fellow woodworkers.
