My brother welded these for me yesterday. The only rest that came with the Powermatic was a 14” one and it was pretty hard to get close with short turnings. I bought some 1” CR, 1/4 CR and 1/4×3 flat plate and made a couple of shorter rest. First one is 6” long and I saw it on one of the videos I think the Droiser(sp) lady. I liked the look of it so I copied it. The second is a 12” reg rest. Haven t tried them yet but I think they will werk fine for me.
I made one similar to the 12” one for my old Craftsman tube lathe when I broke the cast one.
