FOLLOW REST

Reference
ST-54MT
Available (8 Items)


Long and small diameter parts will have a tendency to flex under the force of the cutting tools.  This tool uses 2 adjustable bronze riders which  follow the cutting tool from the opposite side of the cut to prevent this flexing.  PLEASE NOTE:  The follow rest was a standard feature on BRIDGEMILL and TRI POWER machines. 


It can be purchased as an upgrade for SHOPTASK 17-20XM,XMTC, GOLD series and SHOPMASTER 2000 machines. Early machines may require a shim plate to raise the follow rest to match the lathe center height.

THE BLUE PICTURED UNIT FITS ONLY PATRIOT VFD , MILL TURN, CHICAGO LATHE BRIDGEMILL AND TURNADO MACHINES FROM 2010-PRESENT.

It is designed for a machine with 3.75" from lathe spindle center to top of carriage.  It will fit other machines with this dimension or machines with a taller height by making a simple shim of the proper thickness.  For machines with a lower center height, the base can be milled safely about .25" to bring it down to 3.5" center height.
