I have a Powermatic 3520b on order. Also ordered were some additional items one of which is the the RH Bowl Rest pn.6294740. The lathe has not yet been delivered but the tool rest has. I was disappointed when it was unpacked. It is a rather rough casting with numerous pinholes. The paint finish is ugly, not the color but the quality. The working surface is not machined. At a price of $89, it was the most expensive bowl rest in Woodturners catalog and definitely not worth that price IMHO. My expectations far exceeded the product. I really hope the lathe quality is not the same as this bowl rest A couple photos are attached. Anyone have this rest? Does it look like the photos?
Did I get some kind of PM knockoff or am I missing someting here?
