    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 mMovement
    • 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

      Good Value

      I like the 1/4" hardened rod on top - no more tool nicks to file off. The rest is well constructed. I don't have any issues with the plastic "filler" below the top - it can be removed if bothersome. My only complaint is the welding process left some small holes in the top rail that I will need to fill in. Also, the rest is 2" tall, top to bottom, and the threads on the rods are 5/8" - I had to call Woodcraft to get this info.

      Very Happy. With this design

      Very durable, It's great for small projects, like pen making, YO Yo's etc.
