Does the Job - Casting shape is off
The casting looks like they used a different gage for the mold as the sides and curves do not align and the rear machined surface is about 3/16" wider than the front or the lathe.

Functionally, it works well and extends the bed length for longer post.

I have only used it in the upper position however I believe it would work very well in the lower position as alignment is not as critical.

I was petty in the lower star rating as I expected the casting outside shape to match the lathe. Overall, I would still buy again if I had a need.

A big addition to my lathe
The lathe extension allows me to turn longer and larger items on my Powermatic 3520B. I have used it in the upper position flush with the bed to do 4' long spindle work. The extension also provides a great place to put lathe tools if I am working on smaller projects. I am looking forward to putting it in the lower position so that I can turn very large bowls and platters. It is really heavy, so it is somewhat difficult to move it. I clamped some boards to the lathe way and then pulled it up flush to the boards and clamped it in order to be able to install it by myself. BTW, CPO delivery was excellent! I ordered it on Black Friday and it was delivered Monday morning!

powermatic lathe extension
I purchased this lathe extension so that I could turn longer pieces such as a 2 part bedpost. Very Easy to attach. I have yet to use it; however, everything seems to fit correctly. FIt and finish are spot on. Very nice.

The great extension for the great bowl
Multi-purpose since the extension is usable a either level. I now am looking for a large piece of wood to try out my new extension. It was smart to include the tool rest extension.

I would recommend this product
This bed extension allows me to turn enormous bowls. I don't plan on using the full 38" swing but it seems like I always have blocks larger than the standard 20" swing.

Easy To Use
Excellent addition to add flexibility
This is a great addition to give you additional 18" of swing for total of over 36" diameter!! That's crazy...I may or may not need that much capacity...but it's there. The ability to either mount it low or at same elevation of main bed is that you can also just use it to extend the bed another 18"...which makes some spindle work a bit more comfortable, along with having a place to slide the tailstock out of the way too.

Add capacity and save your back.
I needed to turn a 22" piece for a commission. I am very happy at how stable the tool rest is when using the extension in the lower position. Also allows you to move the tail stock completely out of the way when used as a bed extension. Standing at the end of the bed when hollowing is much better on the back than bending over from the front. Only regret is not buying it 4 years ago
