When you need one, you might as well get one. This is a real good one. I unpacked it, assembled onto a spindle I was working on, then read the directions. I had it right, it does just what I expected without any troubles. It holds it steady when turning,and any further shaping I did after the turning. No money wasted on this one. The big mistake I made was just getting the spindle steady, they make a bowl steady that you can attach the spindle jaws to. I don’t think I can go the other way. Sometimes I build shop things, sometimes I buy them. This is a good buy.

I would go as far to say every thing Oneway makes is of the highest quality not the the cheapest but maybe the best.
I have the bowl rest and it works perfect.
