Had to make a column 18" X  8 foot so I made sure it had plenty of capacity.  Took 3 hours to cut and assemble, an hour to turn, 3 hours to sand and 1 day to build the lathe.  What a beast!  with the speed
reducer on the Shopsmith head I can turn 30 rpm (comfortable) and  up to 200 rpm (butt cheek squeezing) speed.  AKA "the pucker factor" www.gftsi.com/legacy/MVI_2473.AVI  for the video of the thing turning Enjoy and have a Significant Season of Joy.  I'll be celebrating Christ's birth, I hope your day will be as blessed as mine.
