    3 Wheel steadies & string steady

    Made from 30mm Marine ply. Skateboard wheels (Large) turned on the lathe for better shape.
    Shower curtain runners (Medium) from Ebay. Both have "T" channel to adjust size.
    Small steady using wax covered string, the wax stops it burning , could use normal string which has been waxed.
