Biggest option for mini & midi lathes has always been bed extensions on homemade lathe stands. Built my own stand for Jet 1014 and gave it to guy buying the lathe. Over the years have seen many versions of homemade stand & cabinet style lathe stands which normally better than what can buy.

Most people buying a lathe stand normally buy one for that lathe and keep it or sell it with lathe when upgrading lathes. Jet has only sold one stand for their versions of mini & maxi lathes and not aware of other after market stands.

Only advantage to buying this optional lathe stand is ease of assembly for people that don;t have time or without other woodworking skills or tools.

Did you finally breakdown and buy a lathe?
