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.

Solid Tool
I took advantage of the sale Tools-Plus had in October and saved about $150 on the Powermatic 54HH Jointer. The tool arrived in about a week in excellent condition. The delivery company rolled it right into the garage at no extra charge. I have found no issues with the jointer at all. Fit and finish are perfect. Although I have an extensive tool collect I was impressed that the jointed included almost every wrench and tool that you need to put the jointer together. Although there appears to be quite a few pieces in the box it all went together quickly and easily. As you can imagine it is a two person job seating the jointer on the stand. At $1286, I think this is a great value.
