Item #

The Powermatic® 3520C adds numerous innovative features to the already well-loved 3520 lineup. New features include an easily moveable magnetic control box that can be attached almost anywhere on the lathe for the most convenient access, adjustable riser blocks for 6'' or more of height adjustment and an increased weight of 726 pounds for maximum rigidity and minimal vibration. The easy-to-read digital indexing speed readout makes adjustments as easy as turning a dial. Electronic variable speed with low and high speed ranges ensures excellent versatility, and since the lathe is capable of maintaining an incredibly low speed of 15 RPM, it is ideal for large turnings. Other features include the new ergonomic spindle lock design, an anti-rotation tailstock key, a set of dead centers that hold a spindle for visual comparison, a two position mount for the optional bed extension, and a sliding hammer knockout rod with brass tip.

What are all the dimensions of the 3520c Powermatic lathe?
Frank M on Sep 11, 2018
How much is the bed extension and how many inches does it add? Am I reading this right that it can be purchased either 3 phase or single phase?
allan l on Mar 11, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Careful with the mixed information. You supply the machine with 1 phase 220V wall power, which feeds the motor controller. The motor itself is 3 phase, but the 3 phase is generated by the motor controller from your 1 phase wall power.
I don't see that the motor direction is reversible. Is it?
Leo M on Aug 31, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it is. There is a switch on the control panel. It also has a master cut off switch on the back side, so when you are not using it, you can cut the power to the lathe completely to protect against any electrical spikes that may happen.
