Fred in NC
>Found my new lathe right here in the WC classifieds, and picked it up this morning, only 220 miles from home. I had been wanting a heavier lathe, and this baby weights in at about 700 pounds. It is a Powermatic 90 and was buit around 1960. Baldor 1-1/2 HP 220 motor. It has an outboard faceplace and several other attachments including adaptor for 1"-8 TPI. Pic below shows the lathe as we dismantled it to load aboard the pickup. The cap is my travel companion.
