Now featuring ArmorGlide Technology that is low-friction and rust-resistant, the Powermatic PJ1696T, 16-Inch Jointer offers big capacity and performance in a machine that is loaded with features. A 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° in and out, and a positive stop for perfect 90° 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 that 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 adjustments. The heavy-duty 7-1/2-HP motor delivers all the power you need for even the biggest jobs.
