I needed a steady-rest for my 20” lathe. I screwed 2 20”x20” sheets of 3/4” plywood together, and cut the ring on the bandsaw. I routed grooves in the arms with rabbets to allow the use of T-track bolts … that way the knobs can be mounted on the opposite side out of the way of the wheels.
With this steady-rest, I can steady turnings up to 14” in diameter.
