>Hi, all. I've just committed to picking up a Powermatic 90 and am wondering if any of you would care to comment regarding its strengths/weaknesses, etc. I'm assuming bearings & pulleys will all need to be inspected.
I'll be installing it in my garage/shop and would also appreciate any tips so far as clearances, etc. If possible I'd like to put it against a wall but don't know if I'd lose any functionality by not being able to get around to the backside of the lathe.
I've never turned on a wood lathe but have a number of years experience on metal lathes. TIA!
