I had this Jet 1015VS wood lathe on top of a tool chest. Originally seeing that it was too tall I made a step up platfoam using 3/4 plywood about 8 inches high.
After a few months I determine to make a lower lathe stand on locking casters, a stand that I could bolt to the tool chest when I need stability.
Materials and tools needed.
A metal cutting saw, band saw or metal cut off wheel will work.
a welder, Tig, Mig, or Stick.
4 each 2″ by 1/8 angle iron 30 inches long with ends cut at 45 degree on my band saw.
Home Depot sells angle iron.
4 each by 2″ by 1/8 by 12 inches long cut at 45 degreen.
4 each 1 1/2 by 1/8 square stock 27-1/4 ” long ,Home Depot sells only 1 1/4 ” square tubing which is also alright .
4 each 3″ locking casters from Home Depot, orange wheels total hight 5 inches.
