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

Great Mortiser
I didn't know how useful a bench top mortiser would be until I took the plunge and purchased one. I'm glad I chose the Powermatic. Easy to use, powerful with the 3/4 horse motor and great features. I have a mortiser on the backside of my jointer/thicknesser that I use for heavy duty large pieces, but the set up on the bench top for normal stuff is much easier and quicker.

I did have a little shipping problem with a dented fan blade cover that I didn't notice at first. After set up I turned it on and it had a horrible noise. It was dented just enough to hit the fan blades. I needed the tool for a job and didn't want to hasle sending it back, so I straightened the cover and fan blades out.

Very nice machine
I bought this machine because I had 2 very large projects to complete in a tight schedule and I wanted something accurate and powerful for chopping the mortises. In the past I've done them by hand, and also with a delta mortising attachment for my drill press (an exercise in frustration that nearly ruined my drill press). This machine is so much easier to set up, and the clamping features are far superior. The sharpening cone is very handy and works great.

I was able to slip the depth stop when I really bore down on it, but I am a "beast". Also, the initial setup required metric hex wrenches and I've lost mine. Luckily I had a handful of torx bits and I was able to find one that fit.

Well made machine
Well made machine with some nice features. Build quality is very good, easy and straight forward to use. Once set up adjustments are easy and tool-free. For the price I think it is hard to go wrong with this machine. I bought the Powermatic chisels to use with it and thought they do a very good job also.

What I Expected
Only had this machine long enough to do setup and testing, but I'm impressed. I've been doing research for several months. Could have gone cheaper and had a decent machine, but I wanted the extra 1/4 hp that Powermatic offers. I also order their expensive chisels (set of 4) which may be the key to the best performance. Haven't used any other brands to compare. I was setup and cutting mortises in less than an hour.

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.

It is a beautiful beast
This is a step above casual use, likely more beef than I truly need but I could afford it. I make cabinet doors, face frames, bed frames all requiring mortises.i find the machine powerful enough to tackle the toughest woods. It is very easy to set up, has good clamping and hold down features. The unit is heavy, very well built and will out live me by untold years

Very solid product
This is a great product. The only con relates to shipping and not the product itself. The first one arrived looking like it had been dropped from the top of a two-story building and was damaged. A new one was sent out quickly. CPO has great customer service. The second arrived with a cracked and warped base. Powermatic replaced the base under warranty. Powermatic also has good customer service. I am vey pleased with this product and I would recommend it highly.

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.

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.

Is this machine supposed to run quietly or is it real loud?
