Nova Cast Iron Legs Q...

>I just emailed Teknatool regarding this but I'd like to poll the group for their experiences while waiting for them to respond.

I currently have a stock DVR mounted on a homemade bench/stand. I'd like to get the cast iron legs for it because it would 1) make it easier to turn from the other side of the lathe (my current bench has another lathe on the other side), and 2) be "somewhat" more portable for traveling (i.e. put a couple axles w/tires under the legs to roll it on the trailer).

HOWEVER, I'd like to add TWO more extensions for some long spindle jobs that come up every now and then. Any issues with a bed this long only supported on the ends?
