HEAVY DUTY WOODTURNING 24 STEADY REST LATHE BOWL ONEWAY POWERMATIC ROBUST. Heavy-gauge 3/8-thick steel construction, powder coated to match Oneway lathes.
Designed to fit lathes with up to a 24 swing. Custom built by Clark Woodturning Tools/The Spin Doctor LLC. One reason these steady rests are unique relates to the materials.All the steel used is heavy duty and supported to minimize vibration and stand up under heavy loads. A stabilizing rib is integrated by the bending process to the outside of the ring and spans beneath the attachment plate to suppress flex. The radial arms and guide tubes are well fitted and the sliding surfaces of the insides of the guide tubes are. To prevent wear and to minimize vibration. The surfaces are both hardened and.
The arms are aluminum 1.25 inch diameter with a flat milled exactly 90 degrees to the wheel. In recent years a switch was made to aluminum arms.This has reduced the weight of the steady rest, plus the softer metal allows the setscrews to make a more secure hold on the arm. PLEASE NOTE, THIS MODEL HAS STEEL ARMS, NOT ALUMINUM. Number two reason for uniqueness relates to the ring design which limits loss of the maximum swing diameter possible on a lathe. Other common designs use a vertical ring, which subtracts at least 4 inches from maximum swing diameter at the point supported by the steady rest. The only loss to maximum diameter in this steady comes from the 12 inch base plate.
Even the attachment bolt is recessed in the base plate to keep it from interfering with turning diameter. A large ring allows the use of larger diameter wheels to place more rubber on the wood and to keep the wheel speed lower than that seen with smaller diameter wheels. Makes it easy to leave the steady rest in place on the lathe (with the wheel arms retracted) while using traditional turning tools on the outside of the project.
