The countdown has come to an end and the announcement we have all be waiting for has arrived and passed. Most of us had assumed Powermatic's Big new tool would be a table saw and some even guessed it would have flesh detecting technology, but it turns out Powermatic's new tool is actually an enormous lathe.
But not just any lathe, according to Powermatic, their new 4224B lathe is the biggest, the heaviest, and the most capable lathe they have ever built. At over 900lbs it is a monster. It features a 3HP 220V electric variable speed motor with a digital RPM readout for fine speed adjustments. This big boy comes with all the bells and whistles built right in, like two 100 task lamps, a vacuum system for chucking bowls, attached tool caddy, remote On/Off switch and more. This lathe can be yours for the low price of $7,500.
