Subject:
Lathe height/ Arm Pain Question?

Barry Irby
>My lathe is set up so the shaft is about the height of my forearm if I hold my arm level. I have what I would call a 'snarled muscle' in my back between my shoulder blade and spine. (right side and I'm right handed) What are the chances there is a relationship? Would it help if I raised or lowered the lathe? There seems to be a 'nerve pinch' aspect to this and it may be affecting the strength of my arm and hand.
