This impressive Powermatic Wood Lathewill handle 20″ plus bowls down to small pens and it has 42″ between centers giving you great versatility when it comes to deciding on projects.
With this lathe you can go into quality production and sell the items you turn out. Load them onto Ebay or such and start to get a return from your hobby.
That can’t be done with a mini lathe.
It has the power and speed control to do just about any wood turning project you wish. Heavy enough to put a kink in your back when assembling (so be CAREFUL) which means it won’t stutter across the floor under cutting pressure. Still not a bad idea to bolt down to the floor as with any lathe.
There’s so much to write about this lathe.
“If you want to turn little things get a little lathe but if you want to turn big things(and little things) then you should get this machine.”
“I’ve been using this lathe for over 2 years now and it sure is a heavyweight. I turn mostly bowls in the 14-20 inch diameter range and this is the machine to do it on.”
“I bought this lathe about a month ago. Super lathe–the Horse power and weight are well worth the extra cost.”
