Here are some pictures of my shop. I just cleaned up. I rough turned 13 bowls yesterday and it was a mess. I had a lot of logs from the storm damage up here in Mn. I'm trying to get them all rough turned before I finish anything else.

Darrel, that is one nice looking shop! I like what you did with your tool rack... and your "guardian angel" on the cabinet doors is pretty good too!

Hey, Thanks. At first I was wondering what you were refering to(Guardian Angel) then I saw the pictures of the Duke. Yes I am a John Wayne fan.

Thanks. I've working on it since 1985. Until a year ago I was doing mostly cabinetry. A little over a year ago I was looking to change directions and always thought how much I enjoyed turning,what little I did. I started turing with my Jet 1236. It didn't take too long to realize I wanted a bigger lathe. I wanted the PM2035 but settled on the smaller brother,Jet1642 and love it. The shop has changed many times over the years. I think that a part of the fun. This shop has been my refuge.

Nice looking space there Darrel  smiley=thumbsup.gif

I'm curious as to whether you added ballast in the box under the lathe, and if so, did it seem to help?

Yes. I made a box for this lathe. On my old Jet 1236 I just had a shelf and piled sand bags on it , but it was always a mess. I had seen somewhere on the internet an articule about making a ballast box. I have about 300lb. in the box. That coupled with the lathe at about 435lb. It totals over 700lb. With a big bowl blank I can still get it to rock but it seems much more stable. As you can see in the picture, there are shelf supports casted in the legs. I made the box and have attached to two 2x4 stringer. It sure made a nice clean look.

I have the same lathe...been thinking of doing a ballast box on mine, just haven't gotten around to it.  Don't mind a baby step here or there, but when it want's to go jogging.....

Hi again. I found the link to the plans for this box. I just entered "Jet 1642 ballast box" They are plans from Dominic Greco. He has it well thought out and includes measured drawings. It also includes outrigger feet. I didn't build these. I like to work at the end of the lathe. That way I don't have to bend over as much.They just look like something that would be in the way. I don't know if anyone out there has used them. I would be interested to hear how they work.
