Gap Bed Insert for Rikon 70-3040
The ‘Gap’ on the lathe bed (FIG. 22) can be filled with RIKON’s Gap Bed Insert accessory (FIG. 24). This short, duplication of the lathe’s upper lathe bed installs over the exposed lower bed and continues the upper bed track at the same height as the sliding bed. This means that your tool rest base can be now positioned anywhere on the lathe for turning, sliding from end-to-end, between center-tocenter. A second tool rest base is not needed.
