>I was making a plant stand out of some pine I had staved together into a tapered cylinder. I had cut the pieces to be 30" long. I got some end fillers on so I could mount it between centers, which on the PM3520A is 35", right? Apparently the measurement is without centers in place, because that 30" piece would not fit. I ended up having to stick the tailstock about halfway off the bed in order to mount the piece.
Not too happy, but not too surprised.
