      This thing was a breeze to setup. I would probably next time get a buddy to put help lift the bed up on the cabinet, this bad boy is a bit heavy, but I got R done. Works like a dream.
      CPO done a great job getting it shipped out quick. They are the only Powermatic supplier I buy from. Great job CPO.

        The jointer was shipped quickly and in good shape. The bed comes in a very long box, looked like I ordered a casket! Very easy assembly only took a few minutes and it was dead on accurate.

          I ran some oak, cherry, and black walnut through the jointer and was rewarded with smooth edges and surfaces ready for glue ups. Instructions were easy to understand. My big fingers had a workout when assembling the jointer, spaces were a little tight for attaching the nuts. Other then this, it is a great machine and I expect to use it for years.
