Nice work. I have been thinking I about trying one of these. What kind of turnings do you use it for? Do you find it helps a lot?

Do you find it helps a lot?
I don’t use mine a lot, but it really comes in handy for larger bowls and hollow forms. Anything you can do to reduce or eliminate vibration or flexing is a real plus.

You did a very nice job on this. I’ve had to use a steady rest on metal lathes a number of times but haven’t used one on my wood lathe yet. I might as well make one for my wood lathe before I need one and this looks like a nice one.

Hello my friend
I have to make one like this in the future weeks
Your design is very sweet with a finition very clean : all is in the detail.
That is the thickness of the plywood?
Congratulations for the daily top 3

Hi bambi. Beautiful Lathe Steady. Very well constructed and the wheels look great too. We can look forward to seeing more of your wood turnings while using your steady. The Plywood looks real nice too.
