Hi All, Our local AAW club is thinking about upgrading from a old gutless mini Jet 10" lathe/fixed Jet stand, to a midi sized lathe for our monthly club demos. (Think Delta 46-460, Jet 1220, Nova, etc in size.) The make/model for this discussion isn't really important. Our club lost our meeting room when the local Woodcraft closed it doors back in February. So we've been having "traveling" or "floating" meetings at local high schools, commercial cabinet shops, etc. -thanks to the generosity of the locals! So we ultimately need to take it with us wherever we land each month. My question to you all has anyone designed some sort of portable stand/case that can be transported in a car/truck/van? To give an example of the idea of what I'm thinking about is similar in concept to a Bosch T4B "Gravity-Rise" miter saw stand. Something that can be relatively stable when in use, yet easily folded up into a "hand-truck" format for transport in and out of a truck bed or van. I use this as an example of concept only. My T4B is a engineering marvel. VERY easy to open/close, and is very stable when the wheels are inflated rock hard. I can sit on my T4B (I'm 190 lbs) and it didn't seem wobbly as I thought it would be. But as strong as it is for a miter saw, a midi lathe is something else again. Only thing about it is I can't stand the pneumatic tube wheels which seem to always go flat every other day. So they're getting replace w/ hard rubber wheels. http://www.amazon.com/Bosch-T4B-Gravity-Rise-Miter-Stand/dp/B000VZNEM0 With so may folks doing traveling demos these days, I can't be the first to ask about this. (I have read about clubs having trailers dedicated for equipment but that is way over the top for our club.) Anyway has anyone come up with some similar design concept to be able to "take the show on the road"? Thanks, Dave Librarian - Wine Country Woodturners. Sonoma County, CA.
