My 9 x 3 1/2 foot South Bend is mounted on a factory prepared surface that is 30 inches by 48 inches. The feet of the bed are mounted with 6 inches between the edge of the foot and the front of the lathe stand. The pivot of the motor mount is about 3 inches from back of the lathe stand.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text

Subject: [SOUTHBENDLATHE] Stand
I am preparing to start working on my Lathe. I've had it for about 3 years and its still in pieces. First thing I need to do is build a stand. My lathe has the motor mounted on the stand behind the lathe. Since its all in pieces I don't know how wide to make the stand. Any suggestions?
