Product Information:

Tired of using a tool rest that's too short, too soft and designed by an engineer that has no idea what it's like to even use a lathe? If you'd like to spend more time turning instead of tuning, the Woodcraft lathe tool rest system is for you. Our straight L-shaped rest improves tool control by allowing interference-free hand movement over the full length of the rest. The top of the rest features a hardened 1/4" steel rod, which will remain nick-free, even after hours of use. Woodcraft tool rests are modular in design to save you money (buy two rests and one post) and permit you to use your rests on more than one lathe. Select the proper diameter post for your lathe and a tool rest in a length or shape to meet your needs. Note: tool rest lengths include threads. Posts screw into rests and can easily be removed and attached to a different accessory.

  • L-shaped tool rest
  • Interference-free hand movement
  • 1/4" hardened steel rod reinforces the top of tool rest
  • Part of the Woodcraft tool rest modular system
  • Save money with 2 rests and 1 post

    I bought one 10 or more years ago and am totally happy with it. Just bought another and first of all why the piece of acrylic? So after removing the acrylic and the silicone they glued it on with and cleaning up the sloppy welds it looks as good as my old one.

    I like this tool rest. The wide side is very comfortable to use. The fact That the post can be interchanged with another tool rest id an advantage.

    Comments about Tool Rest, Straight, 6" :

    Tool rest is the second of this type I've bought. First was as a replacement tool rest for a broken Delta tool rest. I like the addition of the safety wedge. On the first one I had to make one out of wood after a badly banged finger.

    Top bead smoothes well when scratched. Liked it better after the plastic bevel fell off . The high rise feel is more comfortable w/o the plastic. Lower cost makes this a value purchase.
