I have been collecting waste chips from the lathe in shallow pans made of folded poster board, placed in front and back of the lathe base. To make a more effective collection, I recently bought an aluminum “full sheet” baking pan. It measures 25.75 x 18, just big enough for a Sherline 4400 lathe.
Under the pan is a 24 x 12 piece of MDF, into which the four mounting screws anchor.
