Freight Orders

Freight deliveries require a delivery time be scheduled and someone must be present at the time of delivery to inspect and sign for the merchandise. A representative from the freight carrier will call the phone number entered at checkout to schedule the delivery.


Liftgate Service

For freight deliveries, you have the option of adding a liftgate to your delivery. A liftgate is the device that lowers a product from the truck to ground level.

CPO recommends adding liftgate service for freight deliveries exceeding 100 lbs if you do not have a loading dock or fork lift at the delivery address. Additional charges may apply. The liftgate option will be presented during the checkout process.

Please note that liftgate service only ensures the product is removed from the truck. We recommend you have the additional help of two to four people to move the product to its desired location because drivers are not required to assist.

Requesting liftgate service after ordering may result in additional charges and delays.

      Comments about 6 in. 1-Phase 1-Horsepower 115/230V Deluxe Jointer with Quick Auto-Set Knives:

      Received the jointed 4 days after ordering CPO is lightint fast on shipments. Set up took an hour and half, although I anticipated half the day. Once I unpacked it and assembled it I and checked it for flatness and parallel with a 50" machined straight edge and both outfeed table and indeed tables where dead on at .001" from each other I was impressed that it was like that straight from a box. I checked the cutter head with the deluxe a-line-it jig (dial indicator) and the cutter head and knives where .0005" from the the outfeed table and parallel across. This machine for me was dead on accurate straight from the manufacturer. The only thing that wasn't set properly was the fence's 90 degree stop. But that took less than a minute to adjust. Great jointer. My only wish is I went with a 8" jointer, I'm out of 220 power in the shop and not in budget to upgrade panel.

            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.

                Q:

                What is the "Rout R Lift". I see what looks like a foot pedal at the bottom of the base. Is this a self mobile base?

                  A:

                  Rout-R-Lift adds versatility to your Powermatic table saw by turning the extension table into a router table. Simply mount your router to the Rout-R-Lift and place it in the pre-cut hole of the extension table

                  This jointer will not include a mobile base however the base is available as an optional accessory. That model number is 2042374. For additional questions, please contact Raymond Charles at 1-866-577-3014 ext: 27108.
