height for turning?
I have a full size Jet lathe. I bought it with the stand. I feel that I am bending over to far. My back starts to hurt after awhile. I'm just under 6' tall. I would think with buying the stand, it would be of the right height. Is there a rule of thumb how high the lathe should be? I thought I heard someone say that the wood should be at your elbow with your arm hanging down. Advise is welcome.
