The Powermatic 3520B Woodworking Lathe retains all the features of classic Powermatic lathes--including a sliding headstock, electronic variable-speed control, and a spindle lock--plus some great innovations. To name just a few, a digital RPM readout makes it a snap to keep track of your speed, a redesigned tailstock offers internal storage, and a laser etched quill conveniently self ejects. With the 3520B, you'll get classic reliability and advanced technology--the best of both worlds to help you handle your most important jobs.

Versatile to Suit a Range of Projects
Controls and belt access are conveniently located on the front of the headstock.
The standard comparator mounts make turning sets of duplicate projects easy.
With wide-ranging capabilities, the Powermatic 3520B is ideal for both novice users and seasoned veterans. Incredibly adaptable, the Powermatic 3520B features a 20-inch swing and 34-1/2 inches between the centers to accommodate a huge range of project sizes.
For additional versatility, the included pin can be screwed into the spindle housing to provide up to 24 indexing positions for drilling hole patterns or routing flutes and other equally spaced decorative finishes.
Powerful Motor for High Torque
Driven by a two-horsepower, 220-volt, 6.2-amp, TEFC (totally enclosed fan-cooled) motor, the Powermatic 3520B offers plenty of muscle to get the job done. And because it's equipped with an inverter, the motor can operate with either a single-phase or three-phase input. The motor itself is three phase and receives a single-phase current from the inverter for high torque at low-end, maintenance-free operation.
And to help all that torque efficiently make its way to your workpiece, the motor delivers power through a pair of two-range, multi-groove pulleys that are connected by a durable poly V-belt to prevent surging.
Durable and Resistant to Vibration
Built with precisely machined, thick-walled iron castings, this 682-pound lathe is rigid and stable. It is exceptionally solid and effectively resists vibrations caused by out-of-balance workpieces--so you won't have to worry about bulky sandbags or weights.
Cleverly Designed Headstock for Easy Adjustments
A sliding headstock with electronic variable speed and digital RPM readout provides accurate speed adjustment. What's more, a spindle locking mechanism in the form of a spring-loaded button on the front of the headstock engages one of two locking detents (180-degrees apart) for installing and removing accessories that screw onto the 1-1/4-inch by 8 spindle threads.
Tailstock Includes Built-In Storage
To support large workpieces, the tailstock is made from heavy iron casting. For convenience, a compartment--complete with hinged access door--is built into the tailstock casting to store small often-used tools and equipment. For additional storage options, there's even an attached tool caddy for quick access to centers, wrenches, and more. To top it off, ergonomic chrome-tipped handwheels ensure a comfortable feel, and an optional dust assembly can travel with the toolrest to help maintain proper visibility of your workpiece.
The Powermatic 3520B is backed by a five-year warranty.
