I disassembled the lathe I got from my brother and parted out the Borel base and the motor to another lathe setup. 

Now I am back to rebuilding with another motor.  But...no base!!

So I decided to cut a base the same shape as the Borel base and build mounts using printed parts I designed for 3D printing.

Here is my progress so far.  Consider this a prototype.  The woodworking is pretty lame, but once I prove the concept, I will rebuild with a nice piece of wood.

Hi  thinking outside the box is some times the answer, as long as the base is stable and vibration friendly should work well.   nice job so far, lookforward to the finished article.    cheers
