The Powermatic 3520B lathe is the third evolution of the time-honored lathe with many new and improved features. The 3520B retained all the features of the prior models such as the sliding headstock, electronic variable speed with low- and high-speed ranges and the spindle lock. The enhanced features include a digital RPM readout, built-in spindle indexing on the head stock and a redesigned tailstock with internal storage, chrome-trimmed handwheels and a laser-etched, self-ejecting quill. The tool rest assembly also has improved locking on a new profile tool rest that can accommodate an optional dust hood assembly that travels with the tool rest. Additional features include a set of dead centers to hold a spindle for visual comparison, a two-position mount for the optional bed extension, a sliding hammer knockout rod with brass tip, an attached tool caddy and a metal shelf for tool storage.Features:Sliding headstock with electronic variable speed and digital RPM readout for accurate speed adjustmentsSpindle lock and built in spindle indexing on the headstock for drilling hole patterns, routing flutes, and other equally spaced featuresSet of dead centers which hold a spindle for visual comparisonRedesigned tool rest geometry allows for better chisel movement along the too lrestLaser-etched quill is self ejectingTwo-position mount for the optional bed extensionOptional dust assembly that travels with the toolrestBrass tipped knockout bar concentrates the action in the sliding handle; the brass tip will not damage drive centersAttached tool caddy allows convenient access to centers, wrenches, etc.Tailstock has internal storage for additional accessoriesChrome trimmed handwheels are ergonomic for a comfortable feelStandard Equipment:2HP TEFC MotorSafety shield3" face plate and face plate wrench14" tool restMultiple ball-bearing live centerBrass tipped knockout rodDrive centerSpindle lock

Here's a project that offers the kind of fun that keeps on giving. As the builder, you'll get a chance to polish your turning skills making the mallets, cart parts, wheels and even the balls! Others will see this as the hard part, but if you enjoy lathe work, the effort will seem like woodworking bliss. Then, after the "tough" part is through, the fun just continues as you put this handmade set to work whenever friends and family gather. Really, you're the only one who can't lose here!
These special 25mm extended jaws are designed to act like a pin chuck, expanding into a pre-bored hole. This is an especially useful holding method for bowls with a free form edge. A big advantage over pin chucks is that you don't have to bore to an exact size - any size between the minimum and just under the maximum expansion will do. The longer jaw length allows for a very powerful spigot grip for smaller work like lace bobbins (up to 6" in length) and delicate pots. The jaws also have a dovetail for mounting small bowls (up to 6" in diameter).
