Subject:
Powermatic 90 lathe?

Marym
>I am looking for my first full size lathe, and have my eye on an older Powermatic 90 that looks to be very heavy duty.

I dont have any experience with this lathe, so I was hoping someone here might be able to give me some input.

I have very limited turning experience. Looking to turn mostly furniture legs and bowls, if that helps.

Are there any advantages to the "newer" lathes that are out these days compared to this older machine?

Thanks!
