I met a fellow today and his main lathe is a Logan 11" . It was a cabinet model and has many goodies. He incorporated the lay shaft inside the head, under the spindle. It has VFD and slick as can be. In this way, it is mounted on any bench, especially the one he made. Total open access and variable speed at the head.
I won't say more except it was great meeting another machinist guy around here. We are not alone.
All discussion about lathes including but not limited to: South Bend, Hardinge, Logan, Monarch, Clausing and other HSM lathes, including imports
