Carter's MultiRest provides three strong, helping hands for the most challenging of turnings: big bowls, long vessels, and narrow spindles. Slide the support wheels up against your turning project and flip on the lathe to enjoy unequaled stability and whisper-quiet operation. Each ball-bearing roller assembly can be positioned anywhere around the ring, and adjusted along multiple planes for a wide range of lathe sizes and part diameters. The 2-piece clam shell design quickly swings open, providing easy access when mounting or removing turnings, or when sanding or performing other secondary operations. With the larger ring section removed, the remaining smaller section becomes a bowl rest, providing solid support behind the work piece, yet fully exposing the opposite side of the piece for turning.
