There has been a benchtop lathe sitting under the workbench since my father bought it in 1986, and it never gets used because it is such a hassle to get it out and set it up, plus i’ve never wanted to put the mounting holes in my bench so when i do used it it gets only a few woodscrews, and vibrates like crazy. So I finally decided to build a stand for it. problem is, I dont have any floor space left for it, except for a small space behind my table saw, where my scrap pile has always been, and the lathe is too tall to go behind the table saw. So I designed this stand, the lathe can flip down, and then I have a stand for my outfeed roller too. I hope you all approve of my design, it works well for me, and im getting far more use for my lathe than ever before.
