Carter Multi-Rest™ Work Support System

Rating:
100% of 100
Carter's MultiRest™ provides three strong, helping hands for the most challenging of turnings: big bowls, long vessels, and narrow spindles. Slide the support wheels up against your turning project and flip on the lathe to enjoy unequaled stability and whisper-quiet operation. Each ball-bearing roller assembly can be positioned anywhere around the ring, and adjusted along multiple planes for a wide range of lathe sizes and part diameters. The 2-piece clam shell design quickly swings open, providing easy access when mounting or removing turnings, or when sanding or performing other secondary operations. With the larger ring section removed, the remaining smaller section becomes a bowl rest, providing solid support behind the work piece, yet fully exposing the opposite side of the piece for turning. Made in USA.

Features:
  • Compatible with lathe swing sizes from mini up to 20" with no additional hardware required
  • With purchase of the 2" Lift Blocks (#49120, sold separately below), the Multi-Rest can be used on even larger lathes
  • The base of the MultiRest has independently adjustable spacer blocks that provide a secure fit on lathe beds with way sizes from 1" to 4.5" in width
  • Multi-ring structure creates great rigidity while keeping the tool's weight to half that of a comparable full steel rest
  • High strength, laser cut steel and aircraft grade aluminum components assure the ultimate in strength and durability
  • Each of the MultiRest's bearing mounted, non-marring urethane wheels have a rigid internal ring to prevent sidewall flex
  • The MultiRest uses the same high strength industrial sealed bearings used in our time tested bandsaw upgrade guides, so they're not your typical skate wheel and bearing
  • The unit comes stock with 3 wheel assemblies, which is perfect for most tasks
  • Wheel assemblies can be positioned anywhere around the ring
  • Patent pending
  • Made in USA by the same folks who created the famous Carter band saw guides

Carter Multi-Rest for Vases
Nervous after throwing a couple of vases off of my lathe, I invested in the Mult-Rest system. It was very simple to learn how to use and is very effective. I turn a good bit of cedar that is not very strong, so this system comes in handy.

This is the best addition I've made
The muti rest is the best addtion I've made for my lathe in a long time - it eliminates the small wobble from turnings (especially above 7 or 8 inches) not cheap but worth the investment if you turn vases, bowls ect - I have been making wine glass bases (wood base with hand blown glass ) I use a 3x12 and the muti rest and can cut three bases from a single piece of wood (yes I remove the muti rest after the second base is complete.

Need to finish a large bowl on the lathe. Carter tools are always of high quality. Rockler is a name you can depend on.

will this work on a shopsmith?
Andrew on Jul 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: With my knowledge of shopsmith I do not believe the Carter Multi-Rest will work.The two issues I see are the lathe bed layout and the distance to center. Lathe bed is tubular on the shopsmith, and I believe the radius of what can be turned is to restricting.
My lathe swing over bed is 22". Will this work with the riser blocks? Without the riser blocks?
