I think the question would be better answered if we know what lathe you have and what you plan on using it for. I personally have all of my lathes up against a wall, and very little space on either side; really just enough so I can get a knockout rod in the headstock. I don’t have any reason to get behind them, don’t do any outboard turning, and rarely turn anything that is the full length of the bed. YMMV.
