Saw this on Craigslist and was surprised. It’s a Powermatic but it’s not gold!

All the Powermatic equipment I bought for our foundry’s first two pattern shops was green back in 1976 and 1980.
I was surprised to see they had gone to mustard yellow when I returned to wood working interests in the early 2000’s.

It was about 1981 that they changed. Just before they discontinued that fence, which I think was the best fence ever put on a table saw.

When they say they are “the gold standard since 1921” I Shays thought I’d was literal.

Have your say...
