The video (he is using the Nova DVR) show the outboard tool rest starting about 3:45. For the few time either way mount the bed extension on the rest for outboard turning or on the lathe for long spindles, it’s only four bolts.

EVS is very nice but I never change speeds on spindles and usually only once on bowl/platters, Once in a blue moon I may change twice on bowls.

I agree with Fred on the light. You can get a nice articulating desk lamp with a long arm for about $20 and mount to the wall. I use a long goose neck with a small but very bright halogen. Being able to bring the light down to a “glancing” position really shows scratches or defect not easily visible for overhead light. Think of it as casting shadows. It also works greats for lighting the interior of bowls or other deep forms. You need overhead light also but IMHO it can be almost anything.
