Subject:
outboard on the 1236??

>After reading the *what next* thread below, I have to ask -- does anyone ever try to turn larger than 12 inches on the jet 1236 by rotating the headstock?
I'm wanting to turn a 14 inch diameter 8/4 poplar seat for Mike Dunbar's Windsor Stool and had assumed I could do this on my 1236. Am I destined to break the tool rest extension? Are there any other mishaps waiting to catch me?

Thanks,
