Bowl Rest, Large
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,...
- Curved tool rest for bowls
- Interference-free hand movement
- Solid steel construction
- Part of the Woodcraft tool rest modular system
- Save money with 2 rests and 1 post
Good idea, but sloppy constructed
I use the product to make bowls. It works good that job. I had to get a post made at a local machine shop, because they didn't make a 1 1/8" Dia. post. I have an old Powermatic 90 it needs a 1 1/8" Dia. post. I read that the post they do sell are not in tolerance and have a loose fit. This is not good for a tool rest. I guess it is a good buy for the money, but needs to be better constructed. A good idea for a tool rest, needs to be made better. If it was made like that in this country it would be strap.
Works well would buy again
Its just what I needed to help me get a nice finish on hollowing out bowls. (works well)
