Overview of Powermatic PM3000

By: James Marshell


The company equips their table saws with some great technology including trademark Powermatic Accu Fence System that is one of the best in the woodworking industry if not the best. While PM2000 from Powermatic has been a huge hit among carpenters and woodworkers, Powermatic still has more to offer in the form of PM3000.

Powermatic PM3000 comes for the heavy duty crowd with immensely improved performance and the ability to make cuts as big as 14 inches. It is a really welcome and innovative addition to the range of 14 inch table saws. This saw features a riving knife that lifts up and down with the saw blade mitigating the dangerous risks of kickback. Riving knife and saw blade guard both feature a quick release mechanism so the carpenters can install and uninstall them with ease without having to reach out for their tools. Seamless blade lifting and angling is helped by a wide stance trunnion and concave teeth on the gears. This table saw makes no noise, uses power efficiently and creates no heat and vibration thanks to the new Poly-V drive belt system. There is also a push-button arbor lock that is reachable from above the table top and kills the need for dual arbor wrenches. Convenient to reach controls also include jumbo stop switch. Saw features sloped cabinet floor as well as built-in port for dust extraction. This saw comes standard with a 33 inch DuramineTM surfaced extension table and legs.
