  • 1x Powermatic 1791310 PM701 3/4 HP Benchtop Deluxe Mortiser
  • 1x Integrated chisel and tool holder with sharpening stone
  • 1x 1/2" drill chuck with 4" chuck key
  • 1x Removable safety switch key


  • 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 a double lock system, top and side, to eliminate slippage of workpiece
  • Quick action cam lock will quickly lock fence in position with one 90° movement

The new POWERMATIC PM701 Benchtop 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. One locks from the side, the other locks from the top, to completely eliminate any slippage when removing the chisel from the work piece. This hold-down is also reversible to allow stock from 0 to 5" thick to be captured underneath it. The new POWERMATIC 701 Benchtop Mortiser has a quick-action cam lock that will quickly lock the fence into position with one 90° movement. This lock also features lock nuts, so once set they will not have to be continually adjusted. Set-up has never been easier or more precise. The new POWERMATIC 701 Benchtop Mortiser features an integrated bit and chisel spacer system. These two spacers are used to accurately and quickly account for the space needed between the bit and chisel during set-up. Large work surfaces in the table and fence allow for more stability and accurate cuts. The new mortiser also includes a large hinged chuck door with magnetic catch. This unique element allows the user to easily access the drill chuck with the standard 4" chuck key to lock the bit in place. In addition, its rack and pinion allow for simple and quick fence adjustments.

Great but heavy machine.
The moment it started going into the hard wood it worked marvelous. Easy to use, very quiet, and very strong for it being a benchtop model. It is a little heavy but that does keep it from tipping over when you pull down the handle.
ProsEverything. The fence always stays true.

Great delivery time and excellent condition
While I have not been able to use my new PM701 Benchtop Mortiser, as I have been dealing with my wife's recent development of cancer, I received this almost two weeks ahead of what was estimated for delivery time due to being back ordered and was so grateful, as I was wondering how to recieve this with all my traveling to a cancer center. I was able to inspect and clean the mortiser before I left. and It was in perfect condition. I rated this a 4 as I liked it so much and it was so smooth to operate when pulling down the handle, even though I had no chisels for it yet. I'm sure I will enjoy this immensely when I do start using it.
ProsExcellent delivery time, packaged very well and well made.
