      "Swing over cross slide" would be the largest diameter that will clear the cross slide on top of the carriage.

  • 16 in. x 42 in. 1-1/2 HP Woodworking Lathe


    What are the dimensions? i.e. How wide is it at the widest point(s)? (The leg stance width?) And how long is the total length; from outside of motor to outside tip of tail-stock handle when the tail-stock is positioned all the way at the end of the bed? I have limited room for installation of a lathe in my small shop. Thanks.
