I needed one for my English lathe, Record, but I found it hard to get in Sydney, because its bed is made of two bars not flat. So, I desided to make it by myself. Here it is. Made of 4 layers of 12mm plywood, 4 second hand roller blade wheels, square iron bar, cut into 4 equal parts and some bolts and nuts.
I have, already and successfully used it to turn the bottom end of the candle sticks in the previous project. When you turn over two, opposite each other wheels, it will take a turning object from 0 to 160mm in diameter.
