I’m in the midst of a project, and need a spindle steady. I’ve seen a lot of homemade, and they look good. I’m thinking of buying instead of making, but all thoughts are appreciated. The only 2 that I have seen commercially made are the Oneway and Woodcraft. I have never used one. For a Jet 12 -20. Thanks!

Woodcraft may be the best bet. I went to Jet, but the only one they talk about is on the JWL-1220.

I use the Oneway and have been very happy with it. Its very sturdy and adjusts easily. I’ve had mine for at least 10 years or so.

I forgot about Grizzly. It’s basically the same as Woodcraft. From what I can see, Oneway uses rubber wheels, the other 2 appear to be bearings.
