I wonder if he ever used it?  He would have a terrible overhang on the knee with the chip guard on the lathe,  if he took that off he would be able to move the lathe back several inches.

Just because you can cobble something together doesn't mean that you should.

Lathe doesn't look well supported either end, must be a lot of weight and stress on the mill table.
