Wood Tool Rest Set

SKU: 3038 Categories: ,

Product Description

The Sherline lathe is used by many hobbyists to turn wooden parts. In wood-turning, the chisel-like tool is held by hand rather than in a tool holder as is 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 great 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. Socket head screw and T-nut fasteners are included for mounting the base to the crosslide.

By special request from a number of our wood-turning customers, we offer a set of wood tool rests with extended bases. These are designed to accommodate the additional height needed when using riser blocks on the headstock and tailstock to work on larger diameter parts.

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.
