This is the stand for I made for my lathe that I made a couple of weeks back. The top is made from 2 pieces of 3/4 in. plywood laminated together. The legs are 4×4 posts cut to size with threaded rod going around the perimeter of the top stretches and bottom stretchers for rigidity. The lower shelf/stretcher was put down low for stability and to add sandbags if needed. At this point I don’t think that sandbags will be needed and will keep this shelf open to put all the extras for the lathe.
The stand is fashioned after my work bench but sized according to the plans that Teknatool has in the owners manual for the lathe. I added a HTC base to move the lathe around and it lifts and rolls easily. It does sit perfectly flat on the ground and has no movement what so ever.
Thanks for looking.
