    Tool Rest for an old Wood Lathe

    This is a tool rest for an old German wood lathe. My father got the lathe for free, but some parts were missing.
    I build the tool rest out of parts from the lathe and some metal from scrapyard.

    Thanks for posting that!
    Ironically, all week I've been scratching my head thinking about how I was going to do this myself.
    Trying to find, or, figure out how to fabricate, a cam operated type bolt (for quick clamp and release) of the sliding (banjo?) to the lathe bed.
    Thanks again.
