A Stand for my Jet Mini Lathe
I built this stand for my Jet Mini shortly after the woodshop rebuild near the end of 2008. My shop is a double garage, and this was gutted when we added a second story (which became my new consulting rooms). And so I begin again.
I managed to salvage a couple of rough sawn 12”x4” Pine roof beams.
At this stage most of my tools
were still in storage. I did have a Stanley #5 1/2 (with a cambered
blade), and this was used to flatten the beam.
A Mujingfang woodie was used to
smooth the top and sides …
The end product – Jet Mini
with bed extension …
A few details of the joinery ..
Nothing special ... but it is solid and there is no racking at all ...
I added adjustable feet at the concrete floor is not perfectly flat.
The workshop is still looking a little bare, but it is starting to take shape ..
