Wood turning tool rest DIY

April 27, 2019 · 94 views

This is a wood/resin turning tool rest. I have designed it to be very flat in order to solve the unimat main tool building issue - it has a 12mm or under 1/2' space between the carriage surface and the lathe center. I will, in the future, build more tools for it (like a flatter bar to fit my own carbide tool set). All in all, it's cute, it's useful and I think it's a good build for such a small lathe. Hope you like it Have a nice day Saar


Steady Rest Making Use Of the Swing - Episode 184
By: Paul Lockwood
February 26, 2019 · 1,917 views

I've watched several videos on making a Steady Rest, took these and modified them slightly to make better use of the swing of the lathe. Most Steady Rests consist of a closed ring that is fixed to the lathe bed. This means you lose a good portion of the available space on the lathe. By splitting the ring so it goes down the sides of the lathe bed I've gained 2-3 Inches of extra space. An assembly still has to sit on the lathe bed but this is far smaller than doing it in what seems the current conventional way. I could still modify the arms a little more to gain even more space, but this wor

The Double 9 D is a new style of tool rest...a single rod of 1' steel stamped into a shape with two 90 degree bends. I test it out on bowls and spindles. 1/5/17 - Joe just released a new video where he's using the Double 9 D to turn a bowl. Here's a link to that video: http://bit.ly/2E9xjJn Like all tools, the Double 9 D has its areas where it excels and areas where it doesn't; if you'd like to skip all the detail on what I tested, advance to position 16:26 in the video for my summary of the Double 9 D's good points.

DIY Welded Toolrest for Wood Mini-Lathe
By: Barry's Workshop
December 13, 2015 · 3,571 views

I got tired of the limits of the toolrest that came with my mini lathe so I welded a larger one using some scrap hot rolled angle and steel rod that I had left over from other projects. It's only a few inches wider (8.5' [22cm] vs. 6' [15cm]), but it makes a big difference in being able to turn larger work. I also didn't want to make it too big because my lathe's banjo only has 5/8' [16mm] shaft. Music by audionautix.com. Released under Creative Commons License 3.0.

It's easy to make a stop collar for your tool rest post. Very few materials are required and it's fairly quick to turn. A stop collar slides on the post of the tool rest, and can be tightened at any position, allowing the tool rest to be removed and then put back at exactly the same height.

In this sixth and final video in my series of videos about making a tool rest (without welding!), I braze the arm to the post, and then the wear strip to the arm. After cleaning up the new tool rest, I cut and adjust the height on the lathe. The manufacturer's video on using the oxy-mapp torch is here: https://youtu.be/a38PdQkcInA Jan 23 2016 - this just in! Lyle Jamieson passed on a suggestion to put a wedge of wood in the right angle of the angle iron, so that if the tool slips off the end (or even the lip) of the rest, you'll be less likely of catching a finger or two. Sounds like a good idea to me.

Update To My DIY Lathe Steady Rest
By: As Wood Turns
September 04, 2014 · 7,648 views

http://www.AsWoodTurns.com I've been using my home made steady rest for over a year. During this time, I've thought of a couple of improvements: 1) Use locknuts in place of the nuts. Vibration in use caused nuts to come loose and fall off. 2) Replace the base that mounts it to the lathe so that I can place the tool rest closer to the project and the steady rest. Other than the nuts, replacing the base was the easy part. I still needed the steady to be adjustable so the key upgrade was a coupling assembly. This assembly enables the steady upright to be attached to the base but enables adjustmen

My DIY Lathe Steady Rest
By: As Wood Turns
August 27, 2013 · 23,989 views

http://www.AsWoodTurns.com After using my new steady rest turning the travel mug, many viewer requested more information about the steady rest. So here we go. It's make from Baltic birch plywood with layers glued together as necessary for thickness. The wheels came from a pair of roller blades I purchased at a local thrift store. It works fine except I'd like to be able to more my tool rest closer when the steady is near the end of the workpiece. I think it can be much closer. But before I modify the base, I'd like your ideas. I used 1/4 inch hardware. I will be doubling the nuts to prevent them from loosening. I will appreciate all comments and suggestions for improvements. Thank you in advance.

The M Spindle Steady Jig â ” Woodturning

October 19, 2012 · 20,288 views

Drawings are now available for download. Visit: http://www.paloarte.com/the-m-spindle-steady-jig-drawings-for-woodturners/ I took the basic concept from a gentleman named Richard who has a youtube channel, here http://youtu.be/tUwGqTyq68E After telling my father about this jig, as a structural engineer, he decided to make one for me. Thanks to my dad now I have a jig that can hold long spindles on the lathe without a tail stock. I've done several aggressive cuts on it and nothing moved, except that I pushed the jig a little back because the tool rest was vibrating and when it became loose I pushed it along with my aggressive cuts.

Crude spindle steady

November 16, 2011 · 55,782 views

This is the crude spindle steady I made a few years ago and it works well enough that I have never bothered to change it. I don't use a steady very often and this one seems to do the job when I need it. These clips are excerpted from my tall, thin stemmed goblet video where they were edited out due to the length of the video.
