  1. Been wanting to have one of these for my lathe and finally got around to making it. Had almost everything lying around the shop. Scrap plywood ~ 17" x 48" and a piece ~ 10" x 10". Hardware is all 1/4 x 20 machine bolts/nuts and fender washers. I may replace the wing nuts with knobs to make it a little easier on old hands. The cam action hold down has been in my "extras box" for a couple of years waiting on a worthwhile project. Got it from Woodcraft. The wheels are from an $8 pair of In-Line Skates bought from Goodwill. The "circle" is made of 3 layers of 3/4 plywood. The wheel holders are made of Maple. There is a Maple "guide" on the bottom of the base that helps trap the assembly between the lathe bed rails. I works pretty well, the wheel holders need a little sanding and bees wax to allow them to slide a bit more freely. The base may be a bit too wide although my large tool rest can allow access to the edge of the turning. Thanks for looking! Comments are always welcome!
  2. Last year I built a center steady using ply and roller skate wheels...........worked great. However it would allow me to work on small turnings. Today I fashioned some new shower rollers into a new set of wheels for the old base. It seemed to work on a small piece of pine, however the wheels are so hard that they make a groove. I know most of the reason is the soft pine. Anyone else have any ideas of an alternate and better wheel. Thanks
  3. I made a center steady for my lathe some time ago. At first I used model airplane aluminum wheels with rubber tires. I did use them once and the second time the tries came off. My second wheels were made for sliding glass doors and was suggested by a fellow turner on this forum. Still not satisfied, I kept my eyes open for a good replacement. Then at a yard sale I saw the ones pictured for free. They are off a child's pair of inline skates and as an added bonus, they are WHITE!! They are great and work like a charm. I would like some just like them but smaller. I'm sure someday I may just find them at a garage sale
