If you were buying a 20” lathe, the Powermatic is the better buy (not better, but a better buy). In the 24” category, however, I think the Powermatic is overpriced for what you get and I would rather have the Oneway or a Robust. My objection to the Oneway is the lack of a sliding headstock, but that isn’t important to everyone.

If Laguna ever gets around to releasing their new 24/36 Revo, it may become the new “best buy” in 24” lathes but we’ll have to see.
