Run your finger along the edge of Rockler's premium Lathe Tool Rests, and you'll know instantly what a pleasure they are to use. That's because each tool rest is capped with a 5/16" round stainless steel bar, providing a silky smooth surface for your turning tools to glide across, and a comfortable contour for your fingers to slide in as you work. The rests are available in three sizes, so you can pick the one most suited to your work. Short rests allow you to sneak in closer, even if other parts of the workpiece are wider, while longer rests provide more sliding surface without having to readjust. 5/8" diameter mounting post fits most mini and midi lathes.Technical Details:5/8" diameter mounting post fits most mini and midi lathes.5/16" round stainless steel tool rest.Cast steel body with black epoxy finish.Integrated mounting post (not threaded) so it won't loosen with vibration or impact.3 sizes: 4", 6" and 10" long.
These aluminum lathe faceplates are CNC machined for minimal runout and feature large screw holes for more workholding power. They are available in 2'' diameter (48582) and 3'' diameter (44919) sizes. The 3'' diameter faceplate includes a set screw for use on reversible lathes, but the 2'' does not have a set screw. The hubs on both are as short as possible to minimize vibration, and the thread sizes are clearly laser cut into the hubs for easy identification. 1''-8 TPI thread.
Here's a fun, fast project for wood turners who also appreciate things straight, flat and square. Plumb Bobbles miniature plumb bobs are primarily decorative, but you can also string them up to work just like their bigger brothers. A long necklace cord is included for use as a necklace, and they make nice Christmas tree ornaments using the included loop of nylon cord. A mandrel (48782, sold separately) with bushings integrated is required for chucking it onto your lathe. 10K gold plating.Includes a short length of nylon cord, and a necklace cord. Finished Plumb Bobble can range in length from approximately 1-7/8" to 2-1/4" long.Width of hardware is 3/8".A mandrel (48782, sold separately) with bushings integrated is required for chucking it onto your lathe.
The Powermatic 3520B lathe is the third evolution of the time-honored lathe with many new and improved features. The 3520B retained all the features of the prior models such as the sliding headstock, electronic variable speed with low- and high-speed ranges and the spindle lock. The enhanced features include a digital RPM readout, built-in spindle indexing on the head stock and a redesigned tailstock with internal storage, chrome-trimmed handwheels and a laser-etched, self-ejecting quill. The tool rest assembly also has improved locking on a new profile tool rest that can accommodate an optional dust hood assembly that travels with the tool rest. Additional features include a set of dead centers to hold a spindle for visual comparison, a two-position mount for the optional bed extension, a sliding hammer knockout rod with brass tip, an attached tool caddy and a metal shelf for tool storage.Features:Sliding headstock with electronic variable speed and digital RPM readout for accurate speed adjustmentsSpindle lock and built in spindle indexing on the headstock for drilling hole patterns, routing flutes, and other equally spaced featuresSet of dead centers which hold a spindle for visual comparisonRedesigned tool rest geometry allows for better chisel movement along the too lrestLaser-etched quill is self ejectingTwo-position mount for the optional bed extensionOptional dust assembly that travels with the toolrestBrass tipped knockout bar concentrates the action in the sliding handle; the brass tip will not damage drive centersAttached tool caddy allows convenient access to centers, wrenches, etc.Tailstock has internal storage for additional accessoriesChrome trimmed handwheels are ergonomic for a comfortable feelStandard Equipment:2HP TEFC MotorSafety shield3" face plate and face plate wrench14" tool restMultiple ball-bearing live centerBrass tipped knockout rodDrive centerSpindle lock
