This steady rest is designed to reduce whip and vibration of spindle stock during turning. The spindle steady incorporates the same scissor action as the bowl steady, but uses three wheels to capture the work piece and hold it securely. The spindle steady will support spindles from 1/2" to 3" in diameter. The wheels are designed with replaceable, non marring o-rings that contact the wood. The base is made of 1/2" thick steel with a 1-1/4" diameter steel post that holds the wheel assembly securely. The spindle steady head assembly is available separately for people who want to use it on the bowl steady base unit. Fits lathes with a 10" to 24" swing.
A clamp block to fit your lathe needs to be purchased separately from the list below.
