Vibration dampening - anyone tried this approach? *LINK*

>I found an article on line from John Williams out of Canada. He reduces vibration in his lathe by putting a 50 pound weight on a 2 foot pole on the headstock end of his lathe. He says this gives him an effective dampening weight of 1500 pounds.

Has anyone tried this? Does it work? Is it safe?
