Jet outboard lathe turning stand,country bedroom furniture plans,basswood home depot,lathe tool rest 3/4 post - Reviews
I picked up a General 2643 floor stand to use on my Jet 1642 and it has worked very well for my outboard turning needs. I have an Old Delta 1460 lathe with the 16 speed jackshaft and most of the other original accessories, I got it years ago from my father in law. Scott's photo reminded me that Woodturning Design Winter 2008, issue 16, page 26 has a great article for building one out of standard pipe stock by Wilford Bickel.
I keep it bolted to the lathe since it folds up against the end of the lathe and is out of the way.
Stores out of the way nicely when not needed on the shelf under the lathe by removing a couple of bolts. Included was the outboard turning tool rest stand, there nice and heavy the botton feet are solid cast iron.
