I made this steady rest for the high school. After taking mine in several times to help contain some of their long and skinny projects, I decided they should have one at school all the time for safe turning. All the bolts are 3/8-16 socket head cap screws so I made a place to store the 5/16” Allen wrench so it always available. This will fit a 16” jet lathe with a 1 3/4” gap in the ways.
This is made from 1” Baltic birch plywood, steel arms and rollerblade wheels .
It is finished with clear enamel.
