Well done bud, looks great. I’ll have to give you a call you won’t believe the deal on 3 machines I bought. I really need to make on of these. Your plans or from someone else?

This is a wonderful steady rest. I may have to build one similar to that for my Powermatic lathe. Nice work.

Nice Ken, are those inline wheels? I got some of those and might just copy your steady rest.

That is a really nice steady rest. One day I’m going to make one.

One thing that I look for at garage sales are inline skates that people don’t want any more. I usually get that anywhere form $5-$10 for a pair of skates. That’s less than buying new ones. Most of the time the ones that I find have been used very little and the wheels are in pretty good shape.

Those wheels are good for other projects in the shop. Also the bearings can be removed and used alone.
