Powermatic 1352001 Model 3520B 20×35-Inch Wood Lathe with RPM Digital Readout Review:
The Powermatic 1352001 wood lathe only has positive reviews from the 11 customer reviews, with a perfect grade of 5 stars. Delivery was great as well as the crating and packaging. Hardly a surprise, this is a very heavy equipment therefore you need to enlist the help of two friends to help you with the lifting. This equipment is undoubtedly of very high quality that will impress amateurs as well as professionals. Despite its monstrous weight, this is an incredibly quiet power tool. Everything that was said in the advertisement, this power tool fulfilled. Convenient, easy to use, smooth, a space saver and with great functions; this wood lathe is well worth its price.
One problem raised is when boring into a big blank with a 2″ forstener bit. When turning big bowls in hardwoods, the set screw in the tail stock leaves a burr in the slot of the shaft making it very difficult to turn the hand crank. Another minor concern is the weight of the tail stock; it’s a bit too heavy to move, a swing out tail would be helpful. One for star has several issues not only of the lathe itself but including the way shipment was handled. To summarize, he said: great planning, poor execution”. However, he did rate it four stars saying this is great choice if you want to do any spindle work.
Overall, a very positive set of review and all customer highly recommend this product.
