The OneWay Bowl Steady Rest is designed to reduce vibration at the rim of a bowl or platter, thus making turning safer and easier. Even the best lathes cannot stop vibration inherent in the wood, caused by wood flexing. The Bowl Steady's neoprene, ball-bearing wheels reduce vibration, allowing smoother finished projects. Adjustment is easy, just align with the lathe's center, squeeze the scissors-like tension arms and tighten down on the wing-nut.
- The Bowl Steady also increases safety.
- Fingers can be removed from the bowl or platter being turned, reducing the chance of that hand being cut should there be a particularly hard catch.
- Each model has a clamp block specific to that manufacturer's lathes.
