Product Overview

Details

The Powermatic PM701 Bench Top Mortiser features an in-line depth stop which allows the user to stop at preset depths without racking the mortiser bit to the base. Its heavy-duty reversible handle is so versatile that it can be changed from one side to the other quickly and easily, and requires no tools to do so. The stock hold-down features a specially designed double-lock system. A quick-action cam-lock will quickly lock the fence into position with one 90 degree movement. An integrated bit and chisel spacer system accurately and quickly account for the space needed between the bit and chisel during setup. Large work surfaces in the table and fence allow for more stability and accurate cuts.
Features:
  • In-line depth stop allows stopping at pre-set depths without racking the bit to the base
  • Heavy-duty reversible handle can be installed to either side of the head without tools
  • Stock hold-down with double lock system eliminates workpeice movement and slip
  • Quick action cam lock quickly locks fence in position with one 90 degree movement
  • Two integrated bit and chisel spacers for quick and easy setup
  • Large work surfaces on both the table and fence for greater stability and accuracy
  • Large hinged chuck door with magnetic catch for rapid access to chuck
  • Rack and pinion design for simple fence adjustments

Impressive tool, but not for Jatoba.
Jatoba is too dense for even a scary sharp premium chisel.

Excellent Machine
Took just a few minutes to setup. It does seem that the chisel to bitt clearance set by the gauges on the machine may be too much for clean holes to the bottom of the mortice. I've just finished one small red oak table (28 Mortise and tenon joints), and the machine worked well. I did have to clean out several of the mortices because they didn't cut all the way to the bottom (the problem is easily fixed by just cutting the mortice a little deeper, etc.)

Great tool, especially for a hobbyist
For what I expected, I can't ask for more. It's obviously not a floor model with more bells and whistles. However, it is built like a tank, is very easy to use, and will do everything that I need in a hobbyist's shop. One odd (but unimportant) thing that I immediately found is that the Powermatic chisels that I bought with it have 3/4" shanks. I expected 5/8", which is fine. But, there are only two holes in the tool holder on the back of the mortiser that are 3/4", and one of these is for the chuck key. So, I'll do what I probably would do any way and put the chisels in one of my tool boxes with my bench chisels.

Top Notch Mortiser
I've had mortisers before. This one has great design features and its weight is critical to maintaining stability when milling larger pieces. Highly recommended.

Reviews on Amazon have indicated that there has been trouble with the teeth of the arm lowering rack failing under heavy loads, has this design been updated? While I'll probably only use 1/2" chisels as the largest, I have very hard woods I'm going to be cutting for there might be a lot of force on the down stroke. I am a Powermatic user that bought my Model 100 planer new back in 1980 and my Model 81 bandsaw along with my Model 66 table saw shortly after so i have a strong attraction to Powermatic but since you moved production to China I've seen some iffy reports.
Jack on Jan 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I cut 72 3/8" wide, 1.75" deep mortises in a row and never once felt like
this machine was at risk of breaking. I can't speak to your specific
scenario, but I will say that this is a very solid machine, much more so
than any other brands I looked at in the $3-500 range.
Jeff
Is this machine supposed to run quietly or is it real loud?
