Some seem to like them but I’m not sure about top of the tree?! That honour in my opinion goes to the Powermatic 4224B. Although if you do a lot of bowl turning then the VB36 would be a compelling choice.  ;) Good luck with the sale.

Is this still available? I've just been asked to look for a replacement lathe for my local Men in Sheds (Collingham, Nottinghamshire). As I have a Vicmarc 300 at home this would be top of my wish list.

Just watched a youtube video on the Powermatic , Only 3 things that look different are the built in air line and the vacuum

1 , I never use compressed air lines in my workshop because of the dangers of air bourn dust
2 , In 35 odd years I have managed without the need for a vacuum system
3 , Indexing , I very rarely do anything that requires this.

You pays your money and make your choice ;)

Could you send me some photos to see condition of your lathe please and also let me know location so we can consider logisitics.

We have a shed committee meeting this coming Thursday and this will be on the agenda.

Thanks
