Title: Magnetic Starter Question for Powermatic 8" Jointer
Post by: scbucc 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
