Schmidt Tool & Manufacturing has expanded its line of R.I.P. Steady Rests!

(Willis, TX., USA) April 12, 2017  We introduce the 500 series Swivel Top Steady Rest.
This new design allows the operator to open the Steady Rest easily and safely because the top swivels open. This means there is no heavy lifting and no finger pinch points from a heavy closing top section. It also provides more clearance for the lathe tools making the operator’s job less stressful. The Swivel Top was designed with safety and ease of use as its leading features, while maintaining the same rigidity and quality workmanship that are a hallmark of all R.I.P. Steady Rests. It is best suited for flat bed lathes, and does have some limited applications for slant bed lathes as well. We invite you to look over all of our Steady Rest designs and sizes, and then call us to see which one may best suit your machining needs.
