I had a little over 2 inches of a turning leftover and decided that I liked the figure enough to find a use for it. I have more than enough awls, so I was originally thinking about a ceiling fan pull. Then I realized I need a knob on my lathe tool rest. It’s just a friction fit, but it’s made a huge improvement. No more rattling and the slide handle is no longer constantly in the way of moving the banjo. It’s now the nicest thing about the lathe!

I imagine no lathe anywhere has it’s twin either. So it’s a “rare” functional improvement to your lathe.

Thanks for posting.
