At Powermatic, we have a woodworker's intuition which drives our design process. We look for every opportunity to raise the workshop experience to new levels of performance and functionality.

Most of the time, we drill holes that are perpendicular to the drill press table. But as soon as you start making chairs, all conventions are off and angled holes are quite common. Making these accurately on a drill press is a hassle, unless you have an easy, reliable way to tilt the table. Our jig makes the process a cinch, and your table never tips.
