Subject:
Bolting Lathe to Floor?

>I have a Nova 3000 on a set of cast iron legs. the whole assembly is ~400#. I will be attempting to lock it down, to keep it from walking around.

So in principle, I understand the mechanics. Drill a hole, epoxy a bolt, tighten nut to hold lathe down.

Two questions arise:

How deep is the hole? (deeper is better, but do I need to go down a minimum?)

And what epoxy? (just dip bolt in cement before insert?)

Thanks in advance.

Steve
