I saw this idea in a magazine but needed it to be a bit bigger so I enlarged it to suit my needs. The ring is made from 3/4in ply and the roller arms are Tasmanian Oak. The rollers are skate board wheels. The maximum diameter I can support is 5 3/4 inches and the total cost was about $40.
There was a problem though, shortly after constructing this my 6in centre height lathe had a heart attack and the upgrade replacement was an 8in job (Nova 1624-44). This required an adjustment height block to be fitted and modification to the bed mounting set up.
My apologies for the messy photos.
Thanks for looking.
