Hairy, that is a sweet lathe you got there…... Robust Sweet 16…....

Brownred, tons of good advise already mentioned here, the PM3520b is a fairly large lathe, complete access all the way around and you know shavings wet and dry will be flying around like mad. You rough out the big wet bowl it will look like you just got done water skiing and so will your other tools….. In my old garage I bought some of those cheap White window shades I would mount on the ceiling and pull them down to help contain some of the shavings and limit the water spray…... Pretty handy…. I sorta boxed myself in with those things and it did help a lot. If you ever go to garage sales you can usually pick them up really cheap…..
