Powermatic® 8'' Jointer w/Helical Cutterhead

This 8-inch jointer meets the demand for accuracy while combining unique, user-friendly functions. The infeed table lever can be used to rapidly position table height, then the handle rotated for fine-adjustment of cut depth. Fence tilting is accomplished by a worm gear system, smoothly operated by a simple handwheel. The tables provide 73" long extended support. A non-mar insert in the fence protects the table from scratches during adjustments. The jointer is available with a three knife cutterhead, or a helical cutterhead with four-sided knife inserts. The operating switch is high mounted for easy reach, and the push blocks have a magnetic base - store them on any metallic surface for instant access.

  • Helical cutterhead with four-sided inserts provides smoother, quieter cutting and a superior finish
  • Extra long tables are mounted on dovetailed ways, for extended workpiece support
  • Adjustment lever offers quick infeed table positioning and fine-tuning of cut depth

An excellent machine!
I have owned this 8" helical jointer for a year now, and have yet to find any issues the helical head can't handle. Grain doesn't seem to matter, and the long and wide bed is great for a bunch of old cherrywood that had warped badly...a few passes and 8' to 10' boards are beautifully jointed on the flat side. It's pretty quiet, especially compared to my DeWalt planer. I have the wheel kit, which works well. It came perfectly aligned...I have never had any kind of snipe at all. It's heavy, better have two people for setup.

Woodworking Experience:
This joiner is excellent, I've been using for about 10 months and I've had no problems.

solid but difficult
I have several products that have the same or higher amp requirements, including a DeWalt planer with helical cutting heads. None of these products require a 220 v line. This added several hundred dollars to my total cost. Some parts of the assembly process were made unnecessarily difficult by hard to reach bolts. I sure hope this jointer is worth the cost.

Powermatics reputation and need for a jointer
Richard L on May 18, 2015
What is the difference between the Powermatice 8" jointer with helical head cutter and the powermatic Parallelogram 8" jointer with helical head cutter? The operative word is Parallelogram.
Milton A on Dec 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The parallelogram bed is more accurate, adjusting the infeed and outfeed tables simultaneously. It's also a good bit more pricey!
Is the Jointer mobile, or do you have to purchase a separate mobile base?
Mark G on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You'll need to purchase a separate mobile base. I have the powermatic mobile base for mine and it rolls every smoothly.
What are the dimensions of the jointer?
Mark G on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Go to Powermatic web sight and look up Jointers 60 HH 8".
that will tell you way more then you want to know.
