    I'm not seeing the zip file. Is there a setting I'm overlooking?

    That is Awesome!!!!!!!!

    That is a great write up. Thanks for the detail. I will be building some of these sooner or later. This will help me with some of the details and mistakes I could make.

    Thanks,

    Admin Opps!!!

    I inadvertently deleted the PDF file this morning when i was moving the thread. I sent a PM to James appologising for my mistake and asked him to upload the PDF once again.

    Jeff Nicol Style Steady Rest - Tutorial

    The attached file details how I fabricated my version of a Jeff Nicol style steady rest.

    Please move it to it to the "Woodworking Articles and Reviews" forum

    Keith Outten informed me that the file was lost from the original post during the move process.

    Thanks for loosing it Keith. I wanted to edit the title anyway.

    Now if you could attache all the comments from the previous post to this one...

    Thanks for all the great engineering details. Now I know what to look for the next trip to the steel supplier in town. I'll get mine done this winter, I hope. A good friend is a welder and turner, so I'll have to bend his arm to do the torch work!

    Steady Rest Fabrication

    James,
    Thanx, That was alot easier to find.I just finished my elbo style hollowing system and while the welder is out....I was wondering what the easiest way to get my hands on some Jet -white paint to keep everything looking proper.

    Steady Rest Fabrication

    James,
    I made my previous post before I looked at it.Now that I have seen it I have to say Thanx ,that is the most complete and detailed tutorial I have seen on the site yet.Not to take away from all the others but you left nothing to chance.To quote Geico " it's so easy a caveman could do it".I get fab prints in work from designers that are not that good.Have a great day.
    Greg

    ps: My printer still has not caught it's breath!
