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.
Robust also offers Box Rests that are very useful for making boxes and other smaller projects that are made with a flat scraper.
