Here is a steady rest I made from some thirft shop rollerblades that didn't have many miles on them and some scrap metal. It can be used for spindle or bowl turning by remounting the wheels on the upright support. The wheels "scissor" on a rear pivot to change the size of the support for a spindle or platter.
