Rolling Element Follower Steady for 9" South Bend Workshop Lathe

Rolling Element Follower Steady for 9" South Bend Workshop Lathe

Evan
This is a stronger and more adjustable version of the previous design. It uses only 0.250" plate and is suitable for aluminum contruction. It is designed to fit a South Bend 9" workshop lathe. It provides two points of support which is sufficient for most follower duty. It may be easily modified to fit other similar lathes while paying attention to the distance from the mount to the lathe axis. This version also includes a screw adjustment that is entirely optional. It may be left out or added later as desired.
