Powerful, Precise Cutting
A controlled chip cutter-head--a Powermatic exclusive with three high-speed, heat-treated M-2 steel knives--spins at 7,000 RPM, makes 21,000 cuts per minute, and reduces the chance of kickback.
Additionally, an extra long rest on the in-feed table is ideal for rabbeting.
When absolute precision is necessary, there's a fine/quick adjustment lever on the in-feed table.
Robust Two-Horsepower Motor and Non-Slip V-Belt Drive
The Powermatic 60B owes its robust performance to a two-horsepower, one-Ph, 230-volt motor and a non-slip v-belt drive for dependable operation.
For protection and longer life, the drive, motor, and switch are all completely enclosed in the sheet metal stand. A dust collection adaptor with four-inch port helps to control the amount of dirt and debris in the shop.
The center mounted swiveling fence offers positive stops at 45 degrees left and right, and a plunger-type lock at 90 degrees. At the same time, a positive hold-down clamp prevents the fence from slipping.
