Portable Lathe Stand

(Quite)Something to make?

Have you tried to find a stable and yet portable solution?
I tried, beautifully turned wooden legs - that failed. Then a gate-leg table design and that failed too ........

This was my 3rd attempt - and it works.

All steel tube construction with nut & bolted aluminium hinge plates

Tailstock end. Wheels, only for use when it is folded

Hinge detail - Headstock end.
Welded steel tube top section

 

Stand to attention

Frame without lathe - note the feet

Just about portable










Hey chuck, where are you?

All folded up and ready to go.
