    Great product great price

    Comments On Oct 08, 2016:Ordered this because I turn a spindle that is 15" long and about 3/4" round and in the past I have had a hard time because of the flutter. I purchased this and installed it today and turned 2 of the spindles with ease. It works great to steady my work and has cut my time to turn them down and improved the quality of the spindle has been improved because of this. I would have given it 5 stars if it had wheels other than the bearings it uses but that is not a huge thing you just have to allow for the slight marks they cause. The only other thing that would be nice is installation instructions. I did mange to get it installed but with a short written instruction it could have made it a bit quicker.

    Equipment and service are great!

    Comments On Jan 26, 2016:I have been using the steady rest for about a week and find no problems with it. It does the job for which I bought it. As it is usual with Craft Supplies the service and delivery were spot on. My only concern is that there are no written instructions. I personally had no problem setting it up and using it. However I have a PHD friend that could not have it working in 30 days without written instructions.
