Toolrest post diameter on 3520A

Craig Daymon
>As previously mentioned, I am the proud owner of a new Powermatic 3520A. Well, my old/other lathe is a JET Mini. I bought a modular toolrest for the JET from Lee Valley and would like to use it on the 3520, but I need a new post. What is the diameter of the toolrest post on the 3520? (It's not in the manual specs.)

P.S. Thanks to all responding to my post about the shipping/packaging. I still think they need to give it more thought. Having it fully assembled is no indication to me that it has been "tested".
