Steady Rest Question

Lee Weed
>I'm getting ready to build a steady rest for turning hollow forms. The ones that I have seen have the wheels at 12,4 and 8 o'clock. Is there a reason for not putting them at 1,5 and 9 o'clock so you would have one on the centerline where the cut is being made?

Thanks,
Lee
