You can have the features you love on the 3520B lathe but in a smaller footprint. The PM2020 lathe is perfect for you if you’re short on space, or for your projects where a short bed is convenient. Like the 3520B, the PM2020 features a sliding headstock, electronic variable speed with low and high speed ranges, and the spindle lock. The enhanced features include a digital RPM readout, built in spindle indexing on the head stock, and a re-designed tailstock with internal storage, chrome trimmed handwheels, and a laser etched quill which is self-ejecting. Extra features include a sliding hammer knockout rod with brass tip, two position mount for optional bed extension, and a metal shelf and attached tool caddy for tool storage.
