Powermatic 1352001 Model 3520B Reviews
The Powermatic 3520B is amazingly adaptable and it has a 20 inch swing with a whopping 34-1/2 inches between the centers. This makes the range of projects so huge that you would think it was infinite. Plus you have a 2 horsepower motor that will give you all the power and torque you need to get the job done.
Customer service and after-the-sale support is always a big concern for people. It has gotten difficult to find companies who will stand by their products these days. One happy reviewer said he had a couple of parts damaged in shipping and all it took was one phone call to Powermatic and his new parts were there within three days. That kind of customer service gives you peace of mind. He went on to say that it was obvious that an experienced wood turner actually had a hand in putting this lathe together. He said the tailstock is just cool; the storage bin underneath is a great space saver and he also loved the chrome hand wheel.
This Powermatic 3520B has a TEFC motor that will operate with a single or three-phase input. It is important to remember that the variable speed motor is 220 volts. Because of all the torque this woodworking lathe puts out you have multi groove pulleys and a poly V-belt to prevent surging. These multi groove pulleys are 2 range to help out with the torque efficiency.
Another reviewer put it this way; Everything about this “Mustard Monster” has been excellent. It was well made and sturdy. He considered several other lathes and the Powermatic 1352001 Model 3520B gave him everything he needed and was $3000 less than the others which left a lot of money for other tools as well. His only complaint was the fact that the Powermatic has a fixed height, but was easily fixed by making two platforms for the adjusted height he needed.
The Powermatic 1352001 Model 3520B is one woodworking lathe that will be with you a very long time. With mostly 5 out of 5 star ratings and a couple of 4 star ratings I have yet to see anything bad said about this Powermatic 3520B woodworking lathe and with all the benefits and features you simply cannot go wrong by owning one yourself.
