Magnetic Starter Question for Powermatic 8" Jointer
« on: February 05, 2021, 07:06 AM »

Hello,  I thought someone here can probably educate me on this subject.  I have a Powermatic PJ882 8" parallelogram jointer that is 3 phase, 3 hp.  It needs a new starter and a fellow in my shop has a Powermatic 5 hp, 3 phase, magnetic starter available.  Is there any reason I shouldn't use the 5hp starter on the 3hp jointer?   I've been researching the topic online and haven't come up with much.  Any information would certainly be appreciated. Thank you, Steve

Have you called Powermatic? I’ve found them very helpful.
