Product Description

Product Description

1352001 Features: -Lathe.-3520B. Assembly Instructions: -Assembly required. Dimensions: -Dimensions: 31'' H x 27'' W x 55'' D.

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.

The 3520B
Woodworking Lathe
At a Glance:
  • Powerful motor with inverter for 3-phase or single-phase input
  • Built-in spindle indexing for drilling hole patterns and routing flutes
  • Sliding headstock with electronic variable speed and digital RPM readout
  • Tailstock offers internal storage
  • Optional dust assembly can travel with the toolrest

Controls and belt access are conveniently located on the front of the headstock.

The standard comparator mounts make turning sets of duplicate projects easy.
Versatile to Suit a Range of Projects
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.

What's in the Box
One lathe bed with headstock, tailstock, and tool support base; two leg assemblies; one guard; one 14-inch tool support; one 13-inch face plate; one live center; a one-inch spur center; one index pin; one live center pin; one knockout rod; one face plate wrench; one tool caddy; four levelers; 12 socket hd.cap screws; 12 lock washers; 10 flat washers; two comparator centers; one comparator rear bracket with lock handle; owner's manual; and warranty card.

Based on precisely machined, thick-walled iron castings,
the Powermatic 3520B Lathe is both rigid and stable.

The manual makes it clear.
With such great support & a very well made machine, this is the last lathe I will ever own.

First off, let me say that if you're waiting for this lathe to be dropped off, invite a buddy or two over for beer, (after they've had a few, then break it to them that you 'may' need a hand lifting up some parts of this beast).

Actually the only stage I needed some serious help with was after both legs were screwed into the bed. Turning 4-500 lbs of cast iron upright by oneself is ill-advised. I used stacks of wood and some 2x stock as a lever, but I wouldn't recommend this approach...After that, re-installing the headstock, banjo, and tailstock was easy.

Next let me talk about customer service. I'd had a few parts broken on arrival, (the banjo and the 3" face plate). All it took was a phone call to customer service and they had these to my door in 3 days; awesome. Then it was on to technical support to ask about the proper way to hook this beast up to 220. They were helpful, knowledgeable and patient and walked me through the process. Thankfully I had a 30amp, (you only need 20 for the lathe), 3 prong dryer hookup nearby. I ended up making my own extension cord out of a 3 wire 10 gauge extension cord, clipped the ends, screwed a dryer plug onto one end and the other replaced the rat-tail that came with the lathe. It went together much easier than I thought it would, (especially considering that my electrician skills are less than stellar).

Back to the actual lathe review. This thing is 1. the most expensive piece of kit in my garage; 2. the far; and 3. the quietest power tool, it's quieter than a little hand sander, (until actually chunking away, that is)

All of the features that were added to this lathe work as advertised. It was obvious that a turner actually had a hand in putting this together.

I received my Powermatic 3520b lathe about a month ago, and have just gotten it running a few days ago. This lathe is a replacement for another WMH product I own, a Jet 1442VS, so I will use that lathe as a basis for comparison with this one.

This lathe is a GREAT design for a bowl turner. For one thing, is it VERY heavy, at 681 lbs., plus another another 60 lbs. with the 18" bed extension assembly installed, bringing the total weight to up to 741 lbs, and making it heavier than similar size Vicmarc (actually a 24" lathe) or Oneway (20 or 24") lathes. That is about 261 lbs. heavier than my Jet, which weighs in at about 420 lbs. That is, the PM is over 60% heavier than my Jet, and 70% with the bed extension installed. If weight is a factor in wood lathe performance, and it certainly IS, this lathe has got it better than any other I know of near this size (except for the big 24" PM, which weighs in at 900 lbs.!)

Besides that, it is also VERY versatile. I was a bit concerned about its somewhat limited 20" swing. My skills are getting into the advanced category (I think), so I wondered if maybe I should go for one with 24" of swing or more. But not to worry! With the 18" bed and banjo extensions (about $400 additional) installed, and the headstock moved to the end of the bed, the PM 3520b swings 32"! This lathe is more capable than any other, in most respects it seems, if your goal is to turn bowls.

Set-up was easy, even by one man. I moved the heavy parts around with a 2-wheeled truck. I bolted the legs, which are liftable, to the upside-down bed, and laid it on its side. I braced the legs against 25" 2X4s, themselves braced against the garage door (itself wedged to fix it in place) so they would not slip when I hoisted it up-right.

Delivery of the lathe was a treat (completely off loaded by the driver into my garage and he would not accept a tip - all within the "free delivery" promo by Amazon). The Lathe's product manual is thoughtful, well written, and quite logically done. The crating and packaging of the lathe was simply great. Foil covered the wood pallet base; addition of wood blocks prevented shifting; boxes within boxes and a large thick mil plastic wrap protected the contents (despite a hole/tear in the outside of the box during shipping there was no damage or even scratches to the lathe). The extremely high quality of this Powermatic Lathe will speak for itself. I have been an amateur woodworker for over 30 years. At age 50 I now want to concentrate on platters, bowls, and also turn piano stool seats. This is indeed my dream lathe!

I had the Jet 1642 for 3 years and turned hundreds of bowls on it. I decided I needed more capacity and HP. I love the the 3520B lathe. It has the power to turn big 70 lb. out of balance blanks as long as you bolt it to the floor like I do for all my lathes. The only problem is when boring into a big blank with a 2" forstener bit. When I turn big bowls in hardwoods I like to bore into it so I can turn from the inside out to save the bark at the rim. When I do this the set screw in the tail stock leaves a burr in the slot of the shaft making it very difficult to turn the hand crank. WHM says I am the 1st to complain about it. It is a simple fix but one that should have been ironed out in production. The fix is to remove the shaft take a flat file and creat a flat at the slot creating a gap so the burr wont bind in the tail stock. I love this Lathe and turn bowls every day, I am glad I bought it.
