    What motor?! That thing was likely made to be driven by two mules or a water wheel.

    Diameter wise yes it'll fit a drive shaft. Lengthwise it's limited to about 3 feet. So I'll be able to turn the actual ends down but may not be able to get the entire driveshaft in to check run out.

    That's a pretty big lathe... must be a pretty big motor to turn 12" steel.

    I built some drawers the other day. 3/4 birch play, roller ball sliders, and tube slam locks. I was going to cover them in grey carpet, but my dimensions are too perfect. I had to almost hammer fit them between the wheel wells.

    My 285/75/16 treadwrights should be in tomorrow too.

    When time comes, I'm pretty sure it will be replaced by a flexible model .

    Just finished. A bit of a pain, especially when you are missing bolts, but is all finished now. So far pretty happy with the results.

    Wow! Better keep close tabs on where you are putting your hands when operating that thing or we're gonna be calling you Stumpy, before too long.
