Lastly, weight, ease of use, overall quality, and what will still be running in 50 years. Well, the powermatic is on wheels. It is easier to roll away and put back in the corner. The fence is honestly way better on the PM… but the fence is about it. Dust collection… I’m not doing anything in my kitchen… I use it, blow the stuff out the door… but obviously the craftsman has nothing.
Overall, with the shelix head, the craftsman beats the PM hands down, in every way.. but is anyone surprised? It has a new head… it is also 75 years old.. that means it was built by men, with pride, to last.
The pm… built by ?? with $$ in mind, to fail to be replaced in 10 years. It ain’t the old pm.
