I was told this was a must for running things on a lathe. I don’t have much experience on a lathe, but I really want to get going on it. I started to learn what is needed, a lot, and I found that sharpening the tools is one of the most important talents to gain. So I thought instead of buying a steady rest I would save the money and make my own and use that money for new turnings chisels. Just don’t know which to get, a little surprised at the costs of those things. I guess I need to make sure they are HSS. Any particular thoughts on brands you guys.
