finally got around to building a workbench just for the 9 x 20 lathe. Its
built from 1 1/2" x 1/4" angle iron.
It features a drawer for storage of accessories and a lower shelf. The overall dimensions are 48" long
24" deep and a table height of 30 1/2". All the angle iron was cut using my metal cutting bandsaw.
One sheet of 3/4" plywood was used and a couple of coats of varnish.
The drawer is built from 3/4" plywood. The wheels are two 3lb barbell weights. I bored out
The lathe sits on two angle iron braces ID of the weights and placed a 5/8" bearing.
not pictured here.
A 4' shop light hangs over the table.
Lots of storage room.
I've since added holders for the MT2 stuff and wrenches
