Bill Houghton, Sebastopol, CA
One of the British turners of the 40s or 50s - Pain? - argued for a wood rest for repetitive, as in production, spindle turning, claiming that the wear spots created on the wood by the chisel were actually an advantage: the wear spots defined the cuts for the turner.

Probably only make sense if you're making a particular spindle by the thousands.
