lathe steady

Filed under: wood shop — howarth frank @ 11:30 pm

I ran into goodwill this past weekend and picked up a pair of rollerblades for $7.99. I have been thinking about making a steady for the lathe.  I spent part of the day Saturday making just that, and it works great.  The rollerblade wheels make perfect rollers to steady the work against.   It allows me to work the end of a long piece, like a handle or a series of knobs.
