    Congrats. I'm just starting out but I've read some good things about your future wood spinner. Be sure to post some pics with a healthy pile of shavings at the feet of your machine when it comes in.

    WOW, you're kinda easy to please there ain'tcha Don. You've been waitin' YEARS to tell us that you ordered yourself a lathe?



    Just teasin' ya Don. Way to go. I went and checked out the manual for that monster and it's quite the lathe. You should be able to turn some big bowls and long legs with that thing. (Kinda sounds like my ex-girlfriend....big bowls and long legs ). The 2hp motor should put out the curlies very well.

    Did you get the 18" bed extension to go along with it?

    Congratulations on that great gloat.

    We arrive at this moment...by the unswerving punctuality...of chance.

    Man oh man......it's only Monday morning and you got me thinking Mustard already!!! Yup, that is one nice, nice looking lathe you got yourself--if that was sittin' in my shop I might never leave! Someday...maybe someday...

    And, congrats on a fine gloat!

    I'd like to get the extension, someday... I ended up spending enough money for now, almost $600 on turning tools and accessories .

    A PM 3520B huh? Well I'm just not speaking to you anymore

    Nice gloat and I know you can't wait to get it in the shop and spinning. Don't forget the pictures!

    Don,
    I'm green with envy (actually gray with Delta)! I drive a 1440 and you get to drive the 3520B. You won't be disappointed! My buddy has a 3520A so I know first-hand how fantastic your machine is. I tell my buddy it is like going from driving a Honda Civic (Delta 1440) to a Lexus 450 (PM3520) because of the smoothness and power all in one.

    If you are in the Toledo, Ohio area and need help with the setup, let me know. The headstock is a beast on that beauty and usually takes two people unless you've got a really strong back (not recommended)!

    Congrats once again!!!!!!

    Dick
