Bowl and Vessel Steady Rest
Order direct or through our online store
Steady rests are used to support large diameter bowls and hollow vessels when working on the interior. Long hollow forms especially need the support of a quality steady rest.
There are steady rests to fit four sizes of lathes: 16", 20", 24" and 25". All are constructed from a rolled ring made from 1.5" diameter 11 gauge steel tubing like you see here. The wheels are heavy duty & industrial quality, not roller skate wheels.
Steady rests are made to order, and please specify which lathe you have when ordering so that we can install the correct tennon to fit your ways. Click here for Robust Steady Rest Tips.
Steady rests with more than three wheels can also be made.

The wheels are heavy-duty two bearing industrial wheels, not skate wheels.
Please note the interference pins that remind you not to insert anything into the pinch point..
The base is offset so you can get your banjo up close to the work.
Steady rests with more than three wheels can be made too. Just let us know your needs.
