Turning Archive 2006
>I am trying to turn knitting needles. As you know, thin shaft, lots of flex. I figure I need a steady rest and I am looking to you all for ideas. This is some small diameter turning - similar to wine goblet stems and the steady rest needs to acomodate small shaft diameters.
I have a Sears lathe very similar to the Delta and Jet Mid-sized lathes with standard rails and tool slot dimensions.
