  • MSC Lathe Stand for 14x40"

    I'm tempted to purchace the 14x40" lathe from MSC, #CT14x40.
    I've noticed that many posts have complained about flimsy lathe stands, and I do want a good heavy duty stand.
    Does anyone own one of these? If so, is it really heavy duty as stated in the catalog?
    Thanks
    Tom M.

    Tom, in Guy Lautard's "The Machinist's Bedside Reader" (#1), on page 134 is an article by John Kopf called "Workbench Legs". It describes a heavy wood bench suitable for holding a lathe. I recently bought a JET 13x40 and balked at paying over $300 for their bench. So I built one using Kopf's idea. It is one heavy duty bench! My only modification was adding some leg jacks for leveling the lathe.
