Making a Custom-Fit Cover for a Grizzly G0602 10″x22″ Metal Lathe

I became very interested in making my own cover for my Grizzly G0602 10″x22″ lathe after reading Barry Young’s How-To article on the subject.

I wanted to document the process I went through to make my cover but I didn’t want to rehash what Barry had already written, so instead I made a video of the process. So now you can read the steps (Barry’s article) or watch the steps (my video). Both provide you with a cheap, easy and fool-proof method of protecting every major tool in your shop with a custom-fit cover.

Obviously you can adapt this method to virtually any size or shape of lathe, mill, etc – you’ll just need to buy an appropriately sized tarp to make your pattern.

Here’s the video.
