Additional Comments On Jan 25, 2022:I am extremely happy with this lathe. It replace a smaller Jet 1221VS that I had for 4 years. I wanted a bigger more powerful lathe and had my eye on a Powermatic but didn't have room in my small shop for a big Powermatic. I talked to a friend who is an accomplished woodturner ( he had the bigger Powermatic) who had recently downsized. He bought the PM 2014 and was very pleased with it. My PM 2014 was delivered 1/22/2021, and I assembled stand and system without any difficulty. The system has exceeded my expectations. It is quiet and powerful. The removeable control box is an excellent idea. All in all, very satisfied with my new PM 2014. (I currently have a piece of Pecan approximately 14X9 that I am turning and the PM2014 is handling it without a problem.)
Update as of 1/20/2022: I have had this lathe for over a year and while I am still happy with performance, it has been in the shop twice to fix defects. 1st time, screws came lose internally within 6 weeks, second time the bearings had to be replaced after 10 months. Quality is not as good as I would have hoped.
