Most folks will tell you that it is NOT a good idea to bolt a lathe down to the floor.

I know I ask perfection of a quite imperfect world...and fool enough to think that's what I'll find!

+1 on not bolting it to the floor.  You never know when yer gonna need to move it.
Since I do make a habit of turning blanks that aren't 100% round/balanced, I added a shelf and ballast or ballast to existing shelf for stability---except the Am. Beauty---it didn't need any.
Have fun turning!
Where are you located?

Everyday liberating nice things from ordinary chunks of wood---and I like gnarly wood, the outcome is nearly always better than the start.
