NEW Powermatic Tailstock Swing Away for Powermatic 4224B Lathe takes heavy lifting out of end-turning

6294721_PM Swing AwayLa Vergne, TN – The new Powermatic® Tailstock Swing Away for 4224B wood lathes quickly and easily clears the bed to make room for end-turning operations.

“The new Powermatic 4224B Tailstock Swing Away is the alternative to struggling with a heavy, bulky tailstock,” said Katie Davidson, Powermatic’s Product Manager. “Currently, this is the only swing-away on the market for the 4224B.”

To clear the lathe bed, the operator slides the tailstock onto the swing-away and locks it down. With the tailstock secured on the swing away, the operator loosens a knob and lowers the tailstock out of the way. The tailstock can be easily replaced by swinging it back to position on the bed and tightening the knob. The Powermatic 4224B Tailstock Swing Away weighs 18 lbs. and does not interfere with a bed extension mounted in the lower position.
