6" Tool Rest

Roger
>I have been looking for a Delta 6" Tool Rest with a 1" Post(46-805)and cannot find one. It would appear that Delta has discontinued this item. I have a Delta 46-755 16" Lathe and am in need of a 6 incher that can get close enough to work on small turnings. The round ones sold at Rockler etc. will not allow me to get any closer than about 7/8" on a 5/8" turning. Does anyone know where I may be able to aquire one? or should I just buy a 12" tool rest and cut it down?

Thanks

Roger
