Mine is the equivalent of the discontinued 13x40 Grizzly. They closed them out last week, and were out of stock this weekend. Tariffs are probably the culprit. Or....gawd I dinna want to say this.....the old design was not good.

Imported shit

Just leave that lathe outside like you did to your last USA built lathe. Problem solved..Not really sure why you give a Rat's A$$ about this one?

Pads cut, and drilled. Bolts welded to pads.

Flat welded to existing mounting bar on the cabinet. Cabinet trued to sit flat. Tacks hold the flat stock when finish welded. Gaps are kept true by wedging them during tacking. These tacks will keep the gap from closing as the finish welds cool.

Finish welding is also done with wedges.

Once the new mounts are welded in place, the pads are bolted to the mounts, and the pads are then ready to be tacked to the pedestal.

The lift at the back of the cabinets, to accommodate the sloping floor, is about 5/16".

Pads are tacked, and ready for finish welding. Same same wedging while finish welding. Very simple way to accommodate just about any required angle/slope. No need for fancy wedges, or adjustable feet. Can be tweaked with shims if necessary.

Once this is complete, the floor plate will be attached to the pedestals, and drilled to accept wood screws for anchoring to the floor.

Between plumbing issues, got to spend some time on the stands.

Noticed defective welds on one cabinet, and decided to do both cabinets.

Grind a V, and weld it up.

I see this shit all the time on production stuff. Put some metal on it, and send it out the door. Flap wheel, and a coat of paint. Chances are it'll never come back. Just means more g'dam time I gotta spend on it

Should have been beveled along the edge of the 3/8, or overlapped and fillet welded, in the first place.

Looks like a good overall plan to me.
