Powermatic 2000 Table Saw

The award winning Powermatic 2000 Table saw (PM2000) sets a new standard for innovation with an array of Powermatic 2000 Table Sawpatented features and massive body design. It boasts the heaviest cast iron base in its class that virtually eliminates table vibration. The cast iron tables are oversized, and the push button arbor lock is accessible from above the table top to eliminate the need for dual arbor wrenches. The quick-release riving knife design helps reduce the chance of kickback. The blade tilt scale has adjustable angle indicators for repetitive bevel cuts. Built-in retractable omni-directional caster system mobilizes your table saw. A wide stance, heavy-duty trunnion and concave teeth on the trunnion gears promote easier raising and tilting of saw blade. Poly-V drive belt system results in quieter, more efficient power transfer from the motor to the arbor with virtually no vibration and less heat build up. Built-in dust collection port with sloped cabinet floor and convenient access to the inside of the saw cabinet make for simple clean-up. The saw has a proprietary safety switch with magnetic interlock, and the stop button can be knee activated.

Powermatic 2000 Table Saw Reviews

Well I walked into my local machine dealer today and right up front and center sat a work of art. The new Powermatic 2000. If you have not seen it yet is worth a look simply for the entertainment
value. It looks old school with all its bulges and curves. Fit and finish was immaculate. The cool improvements over the 66 are numerous and I wouldwant every one of them IF I were in the market again for a cabinet saw.

This new model comes with a snap out riving knife, snap out kick back paws, and snap out blade guard. No tools need to remove any of these pieces. For those of you that struggle with tightening and loosening the arbor nut the arbor shaft now has a lock pin so that 1 wrench is all that is needed. No need for a block of wood or a second wrench. Surrounding the blade under the table is a dust shield with a 3" hole in it with a flex hose that leads down to the 4" collection outlet at the back of the saw.

You can remove the tube if you want the cabinet to catch the dust. I do not recall how the old PM66 motor is mounted but the motor on the 2000 is attached on the end near the pulley to a flat machined surface. Like the 66 this saw is also a left tilt. The bevel gauge on the front of the saw is not painted or simply a stamped piece of metal attached to the cabinet. It is a work of art. About 1/2" thick and all degree increments are molded into the metal piece. 2 adjustable angle indicators attached with dove tail shaped clamps ride along the gauge for an easy reminder of where to set the bevel. They do not however act as stops like those that stop at 45 and 0 degrees. The saw
weighs about 750 pounds.

The miter gauge is a great improvement. It beats the pants of the competitions stock miter gauges. It has a fence and IIRC you turn a knob to adjust the angle. The switch now has a button to push to start the motor surrounded by a protruding donut shaped ring. Pushing the donut shaped ring turns the motor off. Above the switch is a magnet button key. To lock the switch simply remove the magnetic key. Last that I can remember and my personal favorite is there is no need for a separate mobile base. The saw has built-in, inside the cabinet, a set of 4 casters.

You pull out on the bevel adjustment wheel and it and the shaft pull out about 2 additional inches. The blade tilt disengages and the caster adjustment engages. Crank the wheel and the saw lifts up off the floor. Walk to the end of the right table extension and lift the support legs up
and push or pull the saw to where you want.
