Here is the steady rest I made for our leadwell lathe. It has a programmable steady rest but it only goes up to 12" . This one will go up to 26" dia. I had to make the split line at an angle to allow the turret to pass by without removing the steady. I do still have to remove the top in order to get the turret to pass by. I still have to put on the adjusters for the rollers. I think I'm going to make an adjustable leg to go down to the floor also. We have to put some cable drums in the lathe that weigh 5600 lbs.
