Robust Tool Rests
All of the tool rests from Robust Tools feature a hardened steel rod on the top surface to provide a smooth surface for tool travel. It will never nick or ding and will never need to be filed. All the Robust Rests have a 1" diameter post except the Mini Rests that have a 5/8" diameter post.
Professional woodturners and teachers including: David Ellsworth, Cindy Drozda, Mark Sfiri and Trent Bosh prefer these tool rests for their work and for their students to use.
