Powermatic introduces the PM2014 lathe with an inverter that converts 115-volt, single-phase power to 230-volt, 3-phase output for industrial performance, according to the company.
“The operator-friendly PM2014 lathe is an ideal choice for many professional woodworkers, woodturning enthusiasts, furniture makers, bowl and plate turners, students and instructors. It handles a wide variety of woodworking projects with ease and precision, from turning custom spindles and table legs to crafting bowls, vases and pens,” the company said in a statement.
Features include a 1-hp motor, cast-iron bed, 20” working distance between centers, 14” swing over the bed, and magnetic moveable control box with digital spindle speed and indexing readout.
The lathe weighs 185 lbs. The headstock, tailstock and banjo slide off to lighten the load for transport.
There’s an optional stand, adjustable from 34” to 46” off the floor, and a 13” bed extension.
The PM2014 sells for $1,999 without the options.
