Nova midi bed extension
Works great but joining the extension to the existing bed must be made exact as the tail piece will not slide smoothly from one to another. I had to do some filing. This happens with cast parts.

Comet II bed extension
I love my Comet II, and the bed extension makes it more versatile. My only complaint is that there is no stand to support it. It is, however, so firmly mounted to the main bed that it really doesn't need it for my purposes. There is a danger of tipping without a stand, but I can prop an adjustable roller stand under it to support the extra weight when I need to.

lomnger bed
when I received it the box was almost completely destroyed but it was ok. I had to drill out the mounting holes to get the two beds to mate together correctly. I would recomened it for an inexpensive way to lengthen your bed!! Works ok after modifying it

Can you use the bed extension with the stand?
Kevin M W on Feb 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can. I made a wooden cabinet long enough for the Lathe and the extension.
It works very well.
