I knew the gap bed lathe would pay off at some point!

    Had to check this impeller and at 1200mm diameter they didn't have to remove the gap

            Relax. He was moving the tailstock to use the center to hold the part while centering. The crane was still holding the part and the lathe doesn't move without the chuck protection

              The leadscrew is so long that it has some supports that are moved around so it doesn't sag and the carriage has a little stand on rails so that the operator rides along with it

                that lathe is so long you'd have to use your phone to talk to the person at the other end

                  In my case, it's not the lathe that has the gap, it's the operator.

                  I had considered buying a brake drum lathe to refurbish and use for large diameter items. But I don't have room for it anyway. That could be a blessing-
                  I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-
