Powermatic® 8'' Parallelogram Jointer

Item #
100% of 100

The 8" Parallelogram Jointer offers performance and value in a machine loaded with features. Each machine has an extra long 82" bed length for better work support and is equipped with an innovative single handwheel design that tilts the fence in and out with positive stops at +/-45 and 90 degrees. A non-mar insert in the fence contacts the table to avoid scratching the surface during adjustments. The parallelogram design keeps the table in close proximity to the cutterhead for improved finish and allows for a fast depth of cut adjustment. This design also insures the table remains perfectly parallel, even after years of tough duty. The 1/8" depth limiter control knob gives you quick adjustment ability and safety. A quick twist of the knob will disable this feature. This jointer features a Powermatic controlled chip 3-knife cutterhead for a safe, smooth cut every time. Powerful 2HP or 3HP motors are totally enclosed in a heavily constructed steel stand providing plenty of power for the most demanding jobs.

  • Extra long 82" table for expanded work support
  • Parallelogram design helps maintain table parallelism and eases table raising and lowering
  • Handwheel with worm gear system for precise fence tilting (Patented)
  • 1/8" depth of cut limiter for fast table positioning
  • High-mount switch for operator convenience
  • No-mar fence insert protects table

Great planner jointer
This planer is a beast. It was easy to setup. It is very accurate and easy to adjust. The only thing I was bummed out about is I didn’t order the helical head. I thought I had but I picked the wrong number and it cost to much to send back. Order the helical head you’ll love it

Woodworking Experience:
New Powermatic 8" jointer
After trying to replace a Delta 8" jointer that I had once had, I found that it was not available. I decided to get the Powermatic instead, and I am pleased that I did. I got the one with the helical head, and was very surprised at the smooth nature of the work it did on a very hard piece of osage orange.

After a lot of research, I decided to replace my 25 year old Delta DJ20 8" jointer with the Powermatic 8" helical head jointer. It was delivered today and its massiveness surprised me even after all the research. It is big!I decided to put it too a hard test right off the bat. I jointed a 7 1/2 inch wide piece of birds eye maple. The wood was slightly warped. I put it through one pass across the jointer. The board emerged totally dead flat with a glossy finish. My research said I'd see faint diagonal marks and I did if I held the board up to a light at the right angle. There was absolutely no tear out even of the eyes. The diagonal marks should go away with light sanding. The jointer is louder than the DJ20 and I didn't expect that. I'm very pleased with the new jointer.

Is a spiral cutterhead available? Cost?
Dick K on Feb 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No that’s a 400 up charge
Can this be updated at a later date to helical cutters?
