Ok spinny types.
Now that I have my Midi in the shop and even resting on its stand, what's next? That's roughly where I plan on having my lathe in the shop at this point... the storage tower to the left of the window was meant to hold works in progress (never got around to making any...), and I plan on putting the grinder on a small shelf on the wall to the right of the lathe.
Here are some 'old' construction shots of the lathe stand, to which I've added a shelf, which is stacked with turning blanks (pretty well dried out ones at this point, but...)
I also added a pair of 2x4's which stick out about 4" both front and rear to give it a wider footprint since these photos were taken
As it stands now the workpiece on the lathe is 'just below' elbow height when I'm standing.
Is there any advantage for me to tie the stand in to the wall and/or floor for stability? I also am planning on a rack for chisels, and/or a shelf for my chuck and so forth.
Oh, and also a light of some sort over in that corner as well (the only flourescent would be behind and over my shoulder at the moment)
