      In my opinion, this is the best jointer out there, and I've used several. Solid, stable, and depenable. It gets a good work out weekly.

        My other Powermatic Jointer was used when I got it in the 70's and is still going. It outlasts the ability to get replacement parts. The new one is very nice- longer bed, accurate and smooth operation right out of the box. An option for carbide knives would have been great.

            I have owned this for about three monthes and it is an awesome jointer. It has plenty of power and i could not ask for more out of it. It gives a perfectly flat edge with absolutly no snipe. Looking forward to purchasing a powermatic planer. Quality is unsurpassed!!!

            The only problem with the unit was after doing a check on the setup, I found the fence to be about 1/16th or more out of square. Powermatic sent me a new fence and it is right on. It is a very heavy unit which accounts for the stability of the unit when jointing.
