My 1340 is being delivered tomorrow and I just finished the stand so I thought I'd post some pics.

As most of you know I'm disabled and I need to sit down to do everything so that's why the stand is so
short. I also wanted wheels so I can move it if I ever need to get behind it.

Those are 5" casters and the things in between them are floor jacks. I'm HOPING that I can just leave it up on the jacks when it's in it's final spot, if not I'll just remove the wheels and make some adjustable feet out of 3" round steel with a 3/4" bolt threaded in it for adjustment.

It's all 2" square tube with 2"x4" tube for the legs. The gussets are 1/4" and the top is 3/16".

Like I said, the lathe will be here tomorrow so I'll post more pics in a couple days!

Nice work on the lathe stand, looks very well made and should be a nice stable base for your new lathe.

Impressed, a very robust design and good work.

What was the source of your floor jacks and casters. (I need some for a project).

I'd love to see an update with a lathe on that gorgeous stand. Bet it looks pretty awesome as a complete unit. ;)

Looks great, how did you know the hole placement/distance?

Thanks! Here's what it looks like now 001.JPG 002.JPG 003.JPG

I have it up on 3" round steel stands with swivels on top, the casters are about 1/8" off the floor.
