I am a little held up right now because I need to finish my audio rack, then rearrange the shop for the new lathe.

Here is the new rack. I just need to put one last coat of varnish on the boards and paint all the steel bits.

Finishing my Audio Rack. Many Pix

There should not be a dip there.

I assumed so Dave. All part of the prototyping process.

I've been trying to work out how to turn lots of horn profiles, and the Yuichi seemed like it might just be impossible.

Nice to know that a way exists. Now, can I turn such large discs on my not so big lathe...?

Can you turn outboard??? On the outside of my lathe, I can turn a disc that is 88" across.

Oh yeah, never spun the headstock around, guessing it could go as big as 80" (maybe with a few sandbags!) Did you need a separate tool stand, or did your pivot enough to do all that you needed?

Looking at perhaps upgrading and purchasing a Union Graduate Bowl turning lathe just for this purpose, till the my Axminster one will do.
