About Our Wood Lathe Steady Rests

The Sheffield WoodTurning professional grade wood lathe steady rest is designed to fit your 24", 22", 20", 18", 16" or 12" swing lathe.   Our steady rests are crafted with the highest attention to quality; providing a tool you’ll be proud to own and use for many years to come. The steady rest is an essential lathe tool for the wood turner, helping reduce movement caused by the natural flexibility of wood and significantly increasing safety for the wood turner. This multipurpose tool provides support for bowls, hollow forms and spindle work, and working with your cole jaws will serve to reverse chuck hollow forms and bowls for turning and finishing the base.
