      Comments about 54HH 6-in 1-Phase 1-Horsepower 115/230 Volt Jointer with Helical Cutterhead:

      I do a large amount of laminated wood glue ups for detailed inlay in furniture and cabinatry so really accurate jointing is very important to me. this jointer is the best I have ever used. It makes perfect edges quickly. I never enjoyed changing out blades on my old jointers. Not only are the blades on this one better cutters, they can be changed quicker and more accurately. The whole setup is easier to use and since the blades are four sided, will last much longer than conventional blades.

      Comments about 54HH 6-in 1-Phase 1-Horsepower 115/230 Volt Jointer with Helical Cutterhead:

      I operate a small cabinet shop and set out to replace a old Delta bench top jointer. After doing some research on various brands and models, I had my sights set on a Powermatic 54A jointer. When I learned that it was back ordered I was forced to up grade to the 54HH model which was the same in every way except for the helical cutter head. I will say right now that I am very happy that it worked out this way. The carbide blades give a superior cut, over and over, every time. I am so pleased with the performance and cut finish that I want to upgrade my planer to a machine with the same type of cutter head! The carbide blades are also easy to replace (they have 4 cutting edges) and are self indexing. Anyway, assembly and setup was simple, took less than an hour. I wired the motor to 220v and connected it to a Powermatic PM1300 dust collector. These two machines work well together as very little wood chips end up on the floor. The helical cutter works well with no chatter or tear out and even planes out plywood edges. The tables were pre-set perfectly at the factory (I checked them anyway) and did not experience any snipe. The fence works well to make perfect bevels at infinite angles. I often find that some of my designs require some strange angles of jointery to get the desired effect on the piece that I am building. This machine is powerful and easy to use for that purpose. Its long bed (longest I've found for a 6 inch jointer) is profoundly effective in straightening out the edges of rough cut hardwoods. I mean, a table saw can only do so much, right? Overall, this is a jointer that I would highly recommend for a small or even a large shop. Its durable construction, long bed, helical cutter head, and ease of use are what have me convinced.
