About the Extended Wood Tool Rest Set

This set of wood-tool rests with extended bases accommodate the additional height needed when using riser blocks on the headstock and tailstock to work on larger diameter parts.

Many hobbyists use the Sherline lathe to turn wooden parts. In woodturning, the chisel-like tool is held by hand rather than in a tool holder used to cut metal. These adjustable 3″ and 5″ rests are placed near the work, and the cutting tool is rested on and moved across their surface to cut wood. The design of the tool rest support system allows excellent flexibility in adjustment for position. The set includes a base that mounts to the lathe table, plus both a 3″ long and 5″ long rest for the handheld lathe tool. The bases have been extended in length to work with the riser block set. Socket head screw and T-nut fasteners are included for mounting the base to the crosslide.

The improper use of machine tools and their accessories can result in serious injury. Before using this tool, thoroughly read the instructions and make sure you understand its proper and safe use.


Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
