If you have a chuck on your lathe that can hold the rest…spin it and hold hold a grinder or piece of emery cloth steady on it…will cut it down to size fairly uniform. Other wise you will need to grind a little bit at a time or hold a piece of emery clothe on the post and spin the rest (a course cloth will remove the difference pretty quick…..Interpim had the other suggestion I would make….sanding the interior hole…you might use a round file instead of the dowel and sandpaper if you have one. Lastly, A1Jim has the other right suggestion of geting the right size if you can – or another is to order another mount that has the proper diameter hole….then you can use either rests??
