    beam lathe stand

    hi guys
    this a beam lathe stand i made following rob`s design (aka xynudu on youtube), he was kind to walk me thru some details that make this design work so well and i added a little tweak (really tiny tweak )
    top beam
    120mm channel iron 1430mm long (5" ish by 55" ish )
    65mm x 6mm angle iron 500mm long (2 1/2" x 1/4" by 20")
    25mm x 5mm strap 2 pcs at 200mm long
    4 ea. 10mm 8.8 grade bolts

    square tubing 50mm x 3mm (2" x 1/8")
    75mm x 6mm strap 4 pcs(3" x 1/4")

    it`s 850mm high (33.5") 500mm depth (20") almost 1500mm long (3 ft)
    weighs about 100kg (220 pounds)

    it`s not finished yet as a bank of drawers, a sheetmetal chip tray, and covers are still in process but it`s working now making parts and $$.
    i know it`s not a clausing or a monarch but a well used chinese lathe... one lives with what the universe gives...

    i anchored to the floor via 4 concrete expansion bolts, it`s solid solid no vibrations or anything. will get stiffer once finished not that it needs to.

    anybody interested feel free to ask
