I needed a steady rest for a lathe project. I copied this style from a website called; “As wood turns”. Many videos worth watching. I modified the steady rest to fit my 12” diameter lathe. It did a great job eliminating vibration. The bottom plate is a 1/2” thick piece of micarta. It is very flat and strong as steel. I wanted to have the steady rest fit under he bowl without taking away too much capacity.
