    Hey Randy Privet....

    You've got a bunch of folks drooling over your steady rest over on www.woodworking.org aka the WWA.
    Sascha posted about his studio and there's a gorgeous shot of one of your steady rests there (he's a killer photographer)

    turners beware, 'hang up the tools' shots in this thread...

    Ned, the hollowing rig is one of Randy's, but the steady rest is from The OK Spindoctor. I don't recall his first name, but Clark is his last.

    Pretty serious overkill for that little HF Sascha has on his lathe, IMHO.

    (I originally had a link to the site here, but I've been seeing some oddities on my computer since I was there. I suspect his homepage has been hijacked by spammers who are planting trojans. I didn't see any problems with the linked page, but the homepage was triggering a warning from my browser.)

    I have a steady rest from the thespindoctor and it is very strong and works wonderfully. It has saved me from the anyoing chatter you get.

    Garry, that's a Stubby. I've not seen one in person, but the owners swear by them. It's a high-end piece of machinery.

    Oh, and to be clear, I think the Clark steady rest is awesome. Just looks kinda ginormous with the piece Sascha has in it.
