Overview

This 6" Jointer features a helical cutterhead with 40 four-sided indexable carbide knife inserts - this design provides a superior finish and quieter operation compared to conventional cutterheads, and the inserts require no adjustment once they are installed. If a knife insert becomes nicked, simply rotate it for a fresh edge and continue working. Oversized infeed/outfeed tables are mounted on dovetailed ways. The fence is 38" in length, with positive stops at 90° and 45° right and left. The fine/quick adjustment lever on the infeed table offers quick set-ups with precision controlled depth of cut. The heavy steel stand features a 1 HP motor with a non-slip v-belt drive for maximum performance. The 4" dust port offers easy connection to any dust collection system.

This helical head jointer works very...

Kris B from Orem, UT Posted March 11, 2013
This helical head jointer works very well, as advertised - until you try to cut a rabbet with it. Though the outfeed table includes a rabbit groove, the inserts do not go all the way to the edge of the cutter head,so it is impossible to make a rabbit cut. I use this type of cut if my boards are slightly over 6" wide during a flattening operation. This helical head won't alow this operation , unlike the sraight knife version jointer. A great disappointment from a company like Powermatic. Their "solution" when I talked to them - "switch back to the reqular straight knives". This eliminates the benefit of the HH set-up. The loss of this feature has been a constant source of frustration.
