I have an opportunity to purchase a Powermatic Model 45 wood lathe in "VERY NICE CONDITION, COMES WITH TOOLS, PLATES AND RESTS. MOST OF THE KNIVES ARE BUCK BROS. HAS 110V 3/4HP DAYTON MOTOR."
Can anyone tell me if this is a worthwhile lathe. I understand it is no longer made and wonder if parts, etc. are a problem with Powermatic having changed ownership multiple times since the 45 was manufactured.
Anything anyone can tell me would be greatly appreciated.
After I asked more questions about the lathe, the seller discontinued corresponding so I don't know if he sold it, or if he couldn't answer the questions, or if he was just looking for someone who would buy it "no-questions-asked." I guess it just wasn't God's will for my life.
