I replaced my old Delta 12” lathe with an used Powermatic 3520B lathe and needed to build larger accessories such as this steady rest. The rings and arms are made from 1/2” thick micarta. Micarta is very hard and stiff. The two rings are bolted together with machine screws. The mounting base is made from scraps of maple. The inside diameter is 16 1/2”. Now I am ready to hollow out my latest segmented project.
