Re: Lathe height/ Arm Pain Question?

>"forearm level"... does that mean with elbow bent, or arm straight out from the shoulder?
When I turned on Old Griz with the spindle at 46" (I think), my back and shoulders gave me fits all the time. I set the spindle on the 1640 at 49". No back pain or shoulder pain anymore. I love it.
Sometimes a small change will make a large difference.
