    Default putting together my own 10L stand

    the legs were from an old kick press re-machined the top and bottom so there square knocked down an old butcher block work bench that the lathe came on as it was to deep and to long i think it will work just fine

    its getting there the lathe was already on this bench but it was to deep and to long so i trimmed it a bit and put the cast iron legs on it still need to counter bore the three front and back bolt holes and as far as a chip pan goes a car drive way oil drip pan may just do the trick

    I would counterbore the holes on the top so that they were below the plane of the top, then cover the entire bench with some sheet steel. Even more elaborate would be to add angled edges to the sheet steel, forming a large chip pan for the entire lathe top. Gasket around the belt path on the headstock to contain all the oil that will get everywhere. Then use a smaller chip pan between the two bed supports.

    ya your right but being i have 3 other lathe that like this one i don't use at some point you have to draw a line but i did put a bead of silicone down at the head stock end before setting the bead assy. down and the thing i like about the drip pan is you can just pull it out and dump the chips in the trash can but i do thank you for the input

    Nice job #1, I like how you repurposed the legs and butcher block. How does it run? Jim

    ok i think that's about as good as its going to get i took an old serpentine belt cut it to 64" drilled five holes in it a sewed it together so i could run it i let it run for two hours bearings did not get hot and the oil level in the bearing cup stayed the same the rest of the machine works fine now all i need is to dig up a thread dial and get a belt and i believe its done oh i did need to set the under drive back 1" as the belt was hitting the race way i had an earlier post asking that before i started all this but got no reply but hey now i know
