Powermatic 1285, 12" Jointer, 3HP 1PH, Helical Head

  • Helical cutterhead with 2-sided carbide inserts for fast knife changes with no adjustments
  • Rack and pinion adjustable cast iron fence assembly for smooth fence positioning without play
  • Parallelogram design for close table-to-cutterhead proximity and fast depth of cut adjustments
  • Large 84" x 12" table surface for heavy-duty work
  • Table "lips" on both sides of cutterhead aid in noise reduction
  • Full size rabbeting ledge supports large workpieces for rabbets up to 3/4" deep
  • 3HP motor provides plenty of power
  • Standard Equipment:
  • Cutterhead guard
  • Heavy duty fence
  • Dust port
  • Push blocks
  • Tool kit

Why Choose This?

This 12" jointer offers big capacity and performance in a machine that is loaded with features. Large center-mounted fence assembly adjusts easily via 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 the tables remain perfectly parallel even after years of tough duty. Choose either the standard three-knife cutterhead or the solid steel Helical cutterhead. The helical system makes fast work of knife changing and never needs adjustment.
