So this winter I am planning on getting my lathe into the basement to do some spinny work during winter.
But.....I am not going to continue to live with the tool rest on this lathe.
I am not just referring to the piece we rest the tool on but the entire assembly that runs on the bed.
So I am thinking surely I must be able to buy a rest from another lathe as spare part and put it on my machine.
Anyone done this before.?
I want a rest that's easy to adjust and decent handle and that's machined properly.
Any suggestions on how to go about this if its possible?
