PORTER CABLE PC160JT Variable Speed 6

Porter Cable PC160JT is my most recommended and number 1 suggestion because it epitomizes state of the art benchtop functionalities and also packs one of the most powerful motors with 11,000 Revolutions per Minute. At first glance, you’ll notice that this product retails with a two knife inbuilt cutter head and a large table for your work support.

Even better, this optimal benchtop jointer provides you with a performance level that borders no other jointers in its class. It’s loaded with a myriad of features designed to make your work easier and efficient. Better yet, it is extremely easy to operate this equipment, which is a big plus if you are a newbie at woodworking. If you choose this product, you can rest assured that all your projects will come out smooth and consistent, thanks to the dual cutting fence and heads.
