I've been having trouble finding anyone who has much direct exposure to the new powermatic 4224B lathe, and was wondering if anyone had any input as to whether it was worth the money and how it compared to the Oneway 2436. I currently have a Jet 1442 that I've had for a few years, and it works well, but I find myself limited by the lathe all to frequently (reeves, speed selection, weight, swing). I have access to a sawmill and therefore a ready supply of large timbers (I have 8 24" x 7" Pecan bowl blanks waxed in my basement, along with some hefty oak, not to mention a large hickory tree that is headed my way). I do mostly bowls and hollow vessels, but still do spindles as well from time to time. I had considered building my own (I'm just that way sometimes), but I had pretty much decided to go with the Oneway a few months ago (I *just* missed one sold on craigslist by a jilted wife for $500 (five hundred!!!), but now that the Powermatic has come out, I'm having second thoughts. I've also considered the Stubby, Robust and Serious (and still do from time to time). I'm not in a hurry (yet), but I'm curious as to what everyone knows (or thinks) about the new one.
