Lathe Safety Switch

The stand that the lathe sits on has a steel plate welded to the front in anticipation of the installation of a safety switch, one that obviously never got installed because it has no holes in it where the switch could have been mounted. The only issue around using this plate to mount the switch would have been that doing so would have meant the switch would have projected out from the front of the lathe about 100mm right a crotch height. I attached a timber step-back plate to the steel mount to allow the switch to sit nicely tucked in at an appropriate distance: easily accessible but with little opportunity for it to enable me sing to sing as a soprano.
