Hello, everyone. I'm new here so I'll just ask my question and get back to reading old posts.
This thread caught my eye because of the height issue. I aquired a lathe and put it on my work bench. It runs fine, no vibration, but is too high. What is the proper height (in relation to the spindle)? About elbow high or just a little below? I realize everyone would have different preferences, but just looking for a general idea.
By the way, I don't have room for a lathe stand, so I'll be building a moveable platform to stand on while turning. Unless someone has a better idea.
