The PM2020 lathe is perfect for turners short on space, or for those who specialize in bowls, platters and shorter spindle turnings. It features the same 20'' swing over the bed as the 3520B, but just 20'' between centers. Like its big brother, the PM2020 features a 2HP TEFC motor, sliding headstock, electronic variable speed with low- and high-speed ranges, and the spindle lock. 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 quill that is self-ejecting. In addition, the PM2020 features a two-position mount for the optional bed extension, a sliding hammer knockout rod with a brass tip, an attached tool caddy and a metal shelf for tool storage.

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!
