Top Tool 8" jointer

The Powermatic 60B ran away with Top Tool honors in our test of eight 8" jointers. Priced comparably to the highest sellers, it ranks at the top in many areas: cut quality (from the fastest cutterhead), bed length (83", or nearly 8" longer than the next longest), and weight (its solid 600+ lbs gives this machine great stability, even when working long, heavy stock). Other pluses on the 60B include the rack-and-pinion fence-tilt system, a plastic fence glide that protects the tabletop, column-mounted magnetic power switch, and a depth-of-cut limiter. We can't even knock the lever system for adjusting infeed table height, despite our preference for handwheel adjusters; it proved silky smooth and precise in our tests.
