Frozen Locking Handle on Powermatic Jointer


Recommended Posts

HI All,

I own an 8" Powermatic jointer (882HH) and the locking mechanism for the fence angle is frozen. Has anyone had this happen? It seems to be frozen in the unlocked position. I can use the adjustment wheel to bring the fence to 90 degrees but cannot lock it. The handle is completely frozen in both directions. I have removed the fence to make sure nothing was lodged but everything appears clear.  Hoping to find help here.
