I was wondering, if I could expand the turning capacity of my Shopsmith, by installing longer way tubes, if I had way tubes say a foot longer, or even 6 inches, I wonderful if there would be a negative by doing this, will the rest of the machine work well? As long as I have the ceiling height for Drill Press mode? Will the longer way tubes sag?

Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

This video handles it pretty well.  I would also add another mount/leg give it the extra support.  An adjustable leg would be necessary for a roll around unit.

Dan, that is flippin awesome, I really like that, this way you could leave the set up factory standard, and just add the extension when I need it. I was originally thinking of a permanent alteration, like replacing all the tubes with long ones, but to just slide that extension on like that, well that's even better IMO, I think it's best to leave factory fit alone when possible, and a temp bolt on alteration like this is the ticket.

Thanks
