    One lathe or another,,,,

    One lathe or another, I'm going to turn ya,,,,,,,, (a little Debra Harry tribute.)

    In the latest WOOD magazine there is an article of how one woodworker piggybacked his smaller lathe onto his larger lathe. I'm sure the guy had his reason for doing it as I did when I thought it was a good idea in my situation.

    You know, I've seen some expensive store-bought mini lathe stands before, but man, Doug, that takes the cake

    I can't swivel mine but I wouldn't want to even if I can .

    I will take the sliding feature over swivel anyday. I used to own one that swivels, didn't like it one bit. Then again, we all have our own favorite features...for our own reasons. I am glad you like your lathe, and as long as you are satisfied with it then all is cool.

    I'm guessing the theory is to leave the mini set up for pens or other small stuff, yes?

    My only issue would be that either I'd need alternative storage for the mini when not in use or the "parking spot" would actually be on top of the big lathe...either way I'd be continually moving that 80lb lump.

    About the third time I had to pick it up, the mini would have a 'for sale' sign on it.
    Where are we going? And what am I doing in this handbasket?
