1792020, Powermatic PM2020 Short Bed Lathe, 2HP 1/3PH 230V

We know how valuable shop space is when you're churning out project after project. As an ideal alternative to its predecessor the 3520B, the PM 2020 is a short bed lathe that is equally powerful and only half the size. We spared none of the innovative enhancements from model to model as the sliding headstock, variable electronic speed control and the spindle lock are still part of the design. A redesigned tailstock boasts integrated internal storage. Chrome covered handwheels and a self-ejecting laser quill also appear on the list of newly added features. Room for an optional bed extension and a brass tipped sliding hammer knockout rod are the icing on the cake. Save wasted time on rework and space at the workshop or jobsite with the PM2020 short bed lathe by Powermatic.
