Tool Rest, Straight, 4"
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...
- 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
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.
I have bought the 6" and the 4"
This rest is very durable and it is easy on my hands
