I asked a small group of heavy lathe users to come up with a plan to rework the lathe area to address two urgent problems:
We have not maintained an adequate walkway from door to door in the Woodshop. Code suggests a 44” walkway and at times it has been cluttered.
We now have four Jet Lathes and can run a class of four with each participant having their own lathe. We do not have room in the current lathe area configuration for four Jet Lathes.
The group came up with a set of requirements (see attached) and thoughtfully evaluated 14 possible configurations for the lathe area. The attached layout was deemed best at meeting requirements and solving the above problems. If you have any constructive suggestions, please let Mike know.
