PM 2020 lathe w/swing away and

Comments On Apr 30, 2019:I used the pm 2020 at the nutcracker class last October and purchased it in February.It replaces my Vega 2400 bowl lathe as it has so many features that are easier to use. I also purchased an aluminum carbide sharpening wheel with some of the one way varigrind parts, these are also excellent. Between the Nutcracker class, which I found to be just what I was looking for to learn some new techniques for building Nutcrackers, the lathe, swing away and sharpening items, I could not be happier with Craft supplies. Everyone I have dealt with has been perfect , from instructors to the people in the office to tech support.. I would include pictures of the last few Nutcrackers I have produced with this equipment if I could , as I am so pleased with how much my turning has improved with teaching and improved equipment.

I LOVE this lathe!

Comments On Oct 29, 2016:I purchased my Powermatic P2020 at the end of August 2016. It was a replacement for my first lathe, a Jet 1015VS. I wanted to be able to turn some bigger items than I was able to with my Jet. The Jet certainly performed well in the time that I had it.
I had taken a class at Craft Supplies and I guess I succumbed to turning with a larger lathe. I selected the P2020 because of it's smaller footprint for my shop/garage. As far as I know it is the only full-featured lathe that offers the smaller (20") footprint.
There is NOTHING about this lathe that I don't like. Even things as routine as drilling pen blanks is just better with this lathe. I have turned a few bowls, and intend on turning more. I have turned about a half a dozen pens and everything went just fine. Bigger doesn't translate into "too big" for small projects.
Fit and finish was just fine (other than a bit of cosmetic things when it was delivered). The delivery folks were just fine, putting the lathe down in the middle of my garage/shop. It took 3 adults to unpackaged and assemble it, but all was accomplished in an hour or so. I also bought the roller assembly "Lift, Lock, and Roll" and it works well, even though the lathe is 569 pounds and I am a mere 140.
I would not hesitate to recommend this lathe to someone who has a need to a full power, small footprint lathe.
