Once you have turned on a long bed lathe where you can get the tailstock out of the way, it is tough to go to a mini or midi.  Tried it twice,  and now have 36 inch bed lengths on my regularly used lathes.   On the end of each, taking up about 4 inches is a block of 2x10 that is a holder for drill chucks, mandrels, various jigs and drill bits.  I still have enough bed left to get the tailstock out of the way or line up a 12" blank with a 12" drill bit and chuck to drill on the lathe.
