I had thought about adapting a Universal Tool Rest to a 10ER before, but thinking is as far as I got.
I cannot imagine how heavy the 10ER with 35 extra pounds the tool rest adds would feel. I bet it would be pretty stable because the 10ER is already.
I agree with everything you said here Everett but have to add that I'm afraid that my 10-ER is going to always look incomplete to me until it gets a set of hanging drawers like those... I think I like that simple design better than most I have seen.
That and I also want a speed changer for mine. I do like to be able to "tweak" speeds. I've not been using my 10-ER much at all so maybe lathe work would be its best use since it is already quite heavy and the drawer unit would add weight.
The lift blocks look good too.
This is also the first time I ever looked very closely at the universal tool rest... Kind of impressive.
Sadly I probably won't get anything done before winter. I have a dozen fairly big projects in the works now and just really getting started on a rental house rehab. Each of them wanting some money and the rehab...
Well, you can imagine...
Hobby spending will be zilch this summer. I may need a bank loan to buy Tic-Tacs.
I did not equip with Shopsmiths in spite of the setups but because of them.
