(not a lathe guy)
If it only vibrates when you're turning bowls, I'd check the spindle

Sounds like a lot of overkill on the mounting. There are many things on a
lathe that can cause vibration to be excessive; too many to go into here.
Try googling; lots of good articles on the subject.
There will always be -some- vibration; it's a matter of how much is
reasonable. Research it for best results.
