Lathe Steady Rest

Attachment not found

If made from 3/4" plywood cut 3 pieces to make the frame
the center piece will be altered to accept the bar blocks
which are 1" x 1" steel and mark the 2- outside pieces to accept
a 1/8" grove in the same place as the bar blocks.

The bars are 3/4" x 3/4" sq. tubing.

Rollers are from Inline skates place 2- nylon washers
between the bars and wheel.
