Product Overview

Details

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.

  • In-line depth stop allows stopping at pre-set depths without racking the bit to the base

        Its a nice machine, love the feed rollers. But it doesn't have the clearance that it says it should have. Maybe I need different bits, like the stubby ones? Can anyone help me out on that? The one bit I do have isn't that great, (didn't buy it from Taylor), I'm sure there's better ones out there.

            For what I expected, I can't ask for more. It's obviously not a floor model with more bells and whistles. However, it is built like a tank, is very easy to use, and will do everything that I need in a hobbyist's shop. One odd (but unimportant) thing that I immediately found is that the Powermatic chisels that I bought with it have 3/4" shanks. I expected 5/8", which is fine. But, there are only two holes in the tool holder on the back of the mortiser that are 3/4", and one of these is for the chuck key. So, I'll do what I probably would do any way and put the chisels in one of my tool boxes with my bench chisels.

              Comments about PM701 115/230V 3/4 HP 1-Phase Mortiser:

              I am a custom cabinet and furniture maker and needed a step up from my drill press mortiser. The Powermatic is a very solid machine . It sets up easily and cuts very true and smooth especially with the new chisels. The only problem I had was concealed damage. While the unit is well packed, it had been dropped on the top and had bent the cooling fan and the fan housing. I called CPO and they asked me to forward the serial # to them and they would forward it to Powermatic. I said that it was not necessary to send the entire unit back and that I could just replace the damaged parts if they would send them to me. It seemd crazy to have them incur the expense of complete replacement for an easily replaced part. CPO doesn't deal with parts and they said it was Powermatic's responsibility. Needleee to say, I've never heard from anyone. I took a hammer and block of wood and pounded out the fan housing as best as I could, straightened the bent fins on the fan and dropped the fan down 1/4" so it wouldn't rub. It runs great but I still notice the bent housing. Not great customer service.

                Took just a few minutes to setup. It does seem that the chisel to bitt clearance set by the gauges on the machine may be too much for clean holes to the bottom of the mortice. I've just finished one small red oak table (28 Mortise and tenon joints), and the machine worked well. I did have to clean out several of the mortices because they didn't cut all the way to the bottom (the problem is easily fixed by just cutting the mortice a little deeper, etc.)
