I am a new Industrial Arts Teacher and have a pretty nice wood shop. In it I have 2 lathes. I have never used a lathe before, but was curious as to the capabilities of my machines. They are both larger machines. I was hoping to have students turn table legs, pens, hunting calls and bowls. Here are the specs on my 2 lathes:
The newer one is a Powermatic 220V model #3520B
The older one is a delta in a blue grey color, I could not find a model number only a serial number. It is just slightly smaller than the powermatic. It runs on 110 and have a V belt drive with the motor in in a box below.
Any input on these machines would be great.
