This link from Logan provides information on cutting metric threads on Logan lathes. Assuming your Powermatic has a gear train

Not that old. Thanks for resurrecting it, I missed it somehow. I need to figure out how to get metric either on my Logan or my Birmingham.I know this an old thread, but came across these links and thought I'd add them. This is the official word from Logan on
