When I looked at this, I saw a series of problems:
- It was hard to move and reposition.
- It lacked height adjustment.
- The tool rest wasn’t able to rotate (for work on hollow vessels).
So, I designed a tool rest that was adjustable on all fronts. The bottom flange has grooves that slide along the tracks. The bottom knob tightens the position of the rest base. The rest itself can be moved up and down and rotated by the knob on the front.
Ok, now onto getting this thing completed…
