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. 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.



  • 1" diameter
  • 5" long
  • May be fitted with various tool rests
  • Part of the Woodcraft tool rest modular system
  • Steel construction

    Bought for my Delta Lathe

    The post fit my lathe perfect but I had to cut it off a little because it was too long, it made the tool rest way above the center on my part.

    Disappointed

    Ordered what was in the picture but only got half of it. Didn´t realise i had to order seperately the top of the tool rest.

    Just OK

    I bought this tool rest post and the 3.5". The 3.5" post is way short for my Delta full sized lathe but that was my fault when I measured the old rest. This post is a little undersized but not so the I cannot use it. It is a little long for my Delta, you cannot get it to go down enough for some applications. I will need to grind about 1/4 to 3/8 off of the bottom. The round rest that goes on top are not a real good Idea. See the note I left about them. These posts are OK but need to be reworked a little.

    not everything it could be...

    this post is advertised as 1' in diameter... more accurately it is .975" in diameter... this may seem a small amount of slop, but it makes a difference... i bought this for my powermatic 3520b lathe and did not take into account i needed to add about an inch to the post height to compensate for the shorter rest height... my error and i'll take care of that... it would be nice if woodcraft had the foresight to indicate whether or not a given rest/post combination would or would not work for various lathes... i'll be back...
