I'm new here and new to wood turning as well. I have tried to search the site for info about the HF 10"X18" mini lathe, but the results seem to be everything but what I'm looking for.
I just bought the HF mini lathe, 1/2hp, 10" x 18", cast iron bed. It looks very similar to other machines I see in the market like Rikon, Jet, Turnercrafter, Delta, etc.; they all appear to come from China.
My question is: does anyone here know where I can find an extension bed for this machine? Harbor Freight does not seem to have one. Would an extension for one of the other brands work?
I happened across a thread recently that touched on this subject, and someone bought an extension from Amazon they thought would work, but now I can't find that thread again.
