Somebody on one of the metalworking forums suggested it. I did the same for my mill, though I didn't cut and bend that one....I like the large oil drip metal tray that is used under the lathe. Better than what I have. I just have a small metal tray that is way to small.
This one can be carried by hand... barely.You can get it up or down the stairs by yourself by removing the headstock and using a hand truck.
I just lucked out. I was in a flea market / junk shop with my wife when I saw it on the floor of one of the booths, with a couple of boxes of parts. He said $100, looked like it was missing some parts so I said how about $50, he said OK. Turned out the only thing missing was the lathe dogs. No collets, I've been using the 3 jaw for everything so far, but there's an ER collet adapter available for it and a quick change toolpost set is on my Christmas list.You suck.
