Happy Birthday, I have that same lathe and am sure you will be pleased with it. I still need to get the extention bed for mine, but I have had no complants with it. Bought mine as a floor model and it was missing the wrench, Called the folks at Rikon… they over nighted a new wrench to me.I'M PROUD TO ANNOUNCE MY 80th BIRTHDAY TODAY!
This is my Birthday Gift. I'm presently in the process of building a bench for it.
I'll be posting it when it's completed

I'd like to make some larger things with the wood. I couldn't let it go to the chipper!
I dwelled on wether to buy a new lathe at age 80, but I remembered my 90 year old neighbor. He painted his stucco house all by himself at that age, so I said to myself, "GO FOR IT"!
Lathe with the extension attached!
