I purchased an 11" Standard Modern lathe a while ago and it came without a steady rest. I have a project that will require the use of a steady rest and I have tried my usual sources to locate one, to no avail.
Would anyone here know if another manufacturer used the same size/dimension ways on their lathes? I'm hoping another manufacturer used the same bed dimensions and I can just use their steady rest with no alterations(not expecting too much, am I). If not I assume I'll have to find another company's steady rest and machine the base to fit my lathe.
