I have a steady rest in my "spares" that I have no idea what it fits. The round fingers and the way the adjusters are made is unique. Look at this ebay listing - same as mine but better photos:

Anyone recognize it?

Looks identical to the one I had on a Colchester Student roundhead lathe, so if its for a 15inch swing lathe then it will be from a roundhead Triumph.

Agreed. I have one, but it's not shiny, just found a proper home for it.

Quick research looks like it's definitely Colchester.
I can find a home for this orphan now.

Thanks guys!

Got the same problem with a follow rest - been looking to find a proper home for this little bugger for a while now

Don't have a clue what this follow rest belongs to
