I paid $3000 for a 3520b with a bed extension and a few extras.
For those who think the price should be much lower, consider the bed extension sells for $400-$600 and can add tremendously to the usefulness of the lathe.
Of course this depends on how you use your lathe. I personally would hate to be without the bed extension, even when turning bowls, platters, and small things. I make trays the fit and slide in the ways to keep tools and supplies at hand.
