PowerMatic Model PJ1696 16" Jointer

This 16 inch jointer offers big capacity and performance in a machine that is loaded with features. Large center-mounted fence assembly adjusts easily on a rack and pinion system with ram lock. Preset stops on the fence body allow for fast angle set-up at 45 degree in and out, and a positive stop for perfect 90 degree angles. 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 ensures the tables remain perfectly parallel even after years of tough duty. The specially designed solid steel helical cutterhead consists of six rows of precision ground staggered inserts. This system makes fast work of knife changing and never needs adjustment. The heavy-duty 7-1/2HP motor delivers all the power you need for even the biggest jobs.
