Product Overview


The Powermatic PM701 Bench Top 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. A quick-action cam-lock will quickly lock the fence into position with one 90 degree movement. An integrated bit and chisel spacer system accurately and quickly account for the space needed between the bit and chisel during setup. Large work surfaces in the table and fence allow for more stability and accurate cuts.

  • 115/230V 3/4 HP 1-Phase Mortiser


    Reviews on Amazon have indicated that there has been trouble with the teeth of the arm lowering rack failing under heavy loads, has this design been updated? While I'll probably only use 1/2" chisels as the largest, I have very hard woods I'm going to be cutting for there might be a lot of force on the down stroke. I am a Powermatic user that bought my Model 100 planer new back in 1980 and my Model 81 bandsaw along with my Model 66 table saw shortly after so i have a strong attraction to Powermatic but since you moved production to China I've seen some iffy reports.

      I cut 72 3/8" wide, 1.75" deep mortises in a row and never once felt like
      this machine was at risk of breaking. I can't speak to your specific
      scenario, but I will say that this is a very solid machine, much more so
      than any other brands I looked at in the $3-500 range.

    Is this machine supposed to run quietly or is it real loud?
    Asked on 12/4/2014 by Mike from Greenville, GA

    • A:

      It is very quiet - the noise will come solely from the chisel if the auger rubs against it. The machine itself is very quiet
