Robert Sorby Modular Tool Rest System

Robert Sorby's Modular Tool Rest System lets you select the exact components you need for top-quality lathe work at an attractive price. Unlike tool rests made from cast, low-grade steel, these are made from premium hardened steel for a smooth, nick-free gliding surface that transfers directly to your work. Building your tool rest is easy, just select the post/stem that fits your lathe, then select a crossbar that suits your needs. Thread them together and you're ready to go. The interchangable components make it easy to add to your collection without buying unnecessary parts, and everything breaks down for easy storage.


Features:

  • Modular system lets you install a variety of crossbars onto a single post, or onto several posts of different sizes if you have multiple lathes
  • Crossbars are specially hardened to avoid troublesome nicks and to give a smooth finish
  • Flats on the stems ensure a tight fit when threaded into the crossbar
  • Stems are available in a range of sizes to fit most popular lathes
  • The following crossbars are available: 4'', 6'' and 9'' straight rests, a 9'' curved rest (with internal curve), and a box scraper platform
  • Stems are also compatible with the Robert Sorby Multi-Purpose Sharpening Table and the Precision Boring System
  • Made in the United Kingdom
Choose from: (1) Crossbar, (1) Internal Bowl-Turning Crossbar, (1) Post, or (1) Box Scraper Platform
