I would think $25k for the granite would be way too much. I mean it is clearly more than granite countertops but if he is using off the shelf AA grade parallels he should be able to get them for about $1k each. You can be sure he knows some people who can hook him up with a deal.I read on another site that this guy has an estimated $25,000.00 invested into the granite rails alone on this project but then another source states the owner has less then $10,000.00 in the complete lathe!
Likely because milling granite to those dimensions would require specialized tooling and result in no better accuracy than could be achieved with off the shelf pieces.Wonder why he didn’t mill the entire base out of one piecemeal of precision granite instead of epoxy up multiple pieces?
