Powermatic - PM1300 (Rating: 2)

I went with the Powermatic because I assumed I was getting a higher quality machine. I was sorely mistaken. I had to add a couple of my own washers, there were no instructions for installing the Vortex cone, and plastic handles abound. I am very sorry I didn't go with the Jet and could have saved myself a couple a hundred bucks. Granted, I just tried the machine out, and the suction seems good, but more in line with my Jet not a machine that is supposed to be much more powerful. If you're going to charge me premium dollars and use inferior parts, I'll find another manufacturer.
