Should not have flaws dangerous flaws for money
First of all let me say I'm glad I upgraded to a bigger machine and the helical head lives up to its reputation. That said there were a few problems with my jointer. First, the on/off switch post - 1 of the 4 screws that hold it on doesn't line up and won't go in. Three screws should hold but that post is fairly long and you end up pushing pretty hard on it, hope it holds. Second and maybe more importantly the glide block for the fence is recessed / not flush with the fence and when you push anything less than 1 inch high past it, it gets stuck on it. You have to pull the board away from the indent, a potential disaster in the making. I don't know if this is just mine or if others have this problem but for the money I spent on this thing these could be big problems. I don't see any way to adjust the position of the glide block to make it flush and to fix the post screw would mean a new base which would mean I'd have take the whole thing apart

Great Jointer
I've been using this jointer for fine carpentry (building custom doors, cabinetry and furniture with no problems. The infeed table does have a slight twist (.002) but I havn't noticed any negative outcome in the work i'm producing, out feed table is dead flat. It took about an hour or two to assemble then adjust and fine tune the machine. The out feed was in plane with the cutter but I had to lift one side of the infeed table about .004 to make it as close to perfect as i could get. Works great and very quiet.

You'll love the helical head. Great build quality and quiet!
Delivery and setup is not complicated, but time consuming just like other machines. You need two people to lift the table (about 90lbs but long and awkward for one person so be careful if it's just you). Note: You must attache the belt to both pulleys yourself. There is a motor screw set that can be loosened to move the motor up (more slack for the use belt), and back down (more tension on the belt). You have to lift the motor UP to attach the belt and it's fairly heavy so make sure you do this BEFORE You Move the jointer close to the wall. You'll need both hands to lift it up while your buddy puts the belt over the pulley wheel. Then let go of the motor to tension the belt. Infeed and outfeed tables were set out of the box dead on. It's quiet. It cuts through the exotics like butter. Just check your grain travel and watch for bigger knots or potential problem areas in your workpiece. You have an option to bolt the base to the floor so that's your call but it's nice to have. It comes with extra cutter heads and all the tools for changing them. In all, it took me about 2 hours for assembly not including unpacking it. This is the best jointer I've ever used. Period.

Wow!
This machine is a beast! It replaced a smaller Ridgid with the blade cutter head. The helical head is quiet and does a wonderful job, even on hard wood like mesquite. The machine arrived in perfect condition and before I even received the shipping email.

Only way to go!
quick to assemble, machined surfaces are lightly oiled and very easy to clean up. All adjustments and specs were spot on from the factory. Have not used it much yet, but you might as well buy powermatic, because if you want quality, that is what you will eventually end up with.

Excellent Equipment
Beautiful machine that works like a charm. I find the lever table adjustment difficult, but in time I should get used to it. The machine is shipped on pallets that holes too small for average fork trucks. Caused delivery, and me, a real headache.

Stop looking on [@] - go new
I've been using a sled and a planer for 3 years. I have some commissions now so have to get more serious and faster at flattening boards. The Powermatic 8 inch was my choice over other bigger ones at less cost - I am not disappointed. Tables were flat less than 0.002 and parallel less than 0.0015 with my magnetic base setup and abilities to get repeatable measurements. No adjustments. My choice was the old style ways instead of parallelogram because I think I will end up having the outfeed table rarely ever adjusted once I get the initial cut depth established -and then my setup time is reduced alot by having the new kind of cutter head when knives need indexing instead of replacing like with older style head. For me, this was the best choice for cost, and combined with how I would operate the equipment. The CPO experience was easy and delivery was so fast, I had to push out couple days because my garage area was not yet ready to take equipment. I spent much time researching the different kinds, brands and then tried finding used on [@] and [@]. By the time you factor in shipping, you pay as much for the used without warranty as you get from CPO with warranty and its new and you are the only one whose used it - great for confidence. I will use CPO again, and this jointer is superb even though its not made in Tennessee anymore.

Wonderful Jointer - Powerful & Smooth
After some slight height adjustment on the outfeed side, this thing joints like a dream - just a few passes and things are as square as could be. Lots of power and with the helical head, it's like working with butter, even on hardwood.
