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. So when we set out to redefine what it means to use a Powermatic Drill Press, we wanted it to be as easy, and as intuitive as possible; to allow you to focus your creative energy on the tasks that make woodworking so rewarding. The PM2800B is the culmination of our efforts. The PM2800B brings simplicity to your shop. An ease of use that is truly unique. A level of mechanical elegance that you'll only find in a Powermatic.

Robust, well-balanced hardware 3X the weight of competing cutters and a sharp 4" diameter stainless steel blade make this kit a must have for pizza lovers. Simply make your own creative handle (not included) to complete your cutter with personalized flair. Kit includes a 5/16" threaded insert to attach the handle and to remove it for dishwasher cleaning. A 7/16'' drill bit is required for soft woods or a 1/2'' drill bit for hardwoods. Patent pending. Also available in a chrome finish.See our complete line of Turning Stock to complete your project. Methods to consider for installing the threaded insert are:Use the pizza cutter/bottle opener mandrel (#43469 Sold Separately) and chuck in your drill press. Tighten the two nuts on the insert so it won't spin on the bolt. After the pilot hole is drilled in the stock, clamp your stock with a handscrew or a drill press vise and manually turn the drill press chuck to drive the insert into the stock. Safety Tip: MAKE SURE DRILL PRESS IS UNPLUGGED. The drill press will keep the insert square to the stock as it is threaded in. We also recommend using beeswax, screw lube, or even soap to lubricate the threads on the insert. This process can also be done on a lathe using a three jaw chuck in the tailstock to manually feed the insert into the stock. And finally, if you're using acrylics for your handle, we have found that heating the insert before installing it makes it go in like a hot knife in butter.
