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 45Adeg in and out, and a positive stop for perfect 90Adeg 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.

Not good enough. :( I thought that PowermaticA (R) 12'' Jointer, 3HP 3PH, With Helical Head by Powermatic is one of the best on the market, but I am very disappointed.
