Since the bed was about as stiff as a wet noodle, I reinforced it. Now it approaches the stiffness of dry noodle!

Big thanks for the updates. This lathe project end result will end up with a much better lathe.
A usual discussion is comparing the final result to some existing lathes , but to my thinking if cost + knowledge an skill gained is factored in then the result is worthwhile. So thank's for showing your efforts.

It appears "The MAHO retrofitting family gathering " at your house this summer may be postponed .:lol:
What a big Bummer. Oh will , hope we all will be available then.

Stay warm -- an healthy
