Product Description

Clamped on the bed, the Steady Rest will take round stock up to 1 1/2-inch diameter. A steady rest is needed whenever you want to turn slender fragile bars, or drill into the en of long cylindrical pieces. The quickest way to set up the rest is to support the work on lathe centers between chuck and tailstock. Then loosen the three Allen head screws and push the brass jaws inward, until they contact the work slightly. Lock in position, and during machining use a heavy amount of oil or grease to lubricate the tips. Brass jaws are used because they cause minimum marring of the work. Never run them dry. At their point of contact, the workpiece must be smooth. For super-accurate work, the Unimat owner may wish to install small contact rollers on the work. Also, a tight fitting ring can be temporarily placed in the work to provide a riding surface.
