>I’m planning on replacing the steel cabinet that my Powermatic 90 Lathe came with, with a shop built unit. There are several reasons I would like to replace it, the main one is it resonates like a drum at times, it has no tool storage, and I’d like a more stable base.
I modified my PM 90 to make it a 20” lathe so the base needs to be stable.
What I would like for a cabinet is:
Made from MDF and Lumber
A place to add extra weight to the bottom
Dust collection would be nice
Can I get ideas from what you guys and gals have done or seen for a lathe cabinet base?
