The Rivolver Tool Rest system allows users to match up the correct tool rest with the users project, and the lathe it is to be used on. Rivolver offers four different tool rest sizes, a curved tool rest for bowl work, and two different sizes of posts to match the majority of wood lathe tool rest bases on the market in North America. The straight tool rests are cast steel, with a 10mm specially hardened round steel rod, welded to the cast steel tool rest . This creates a very long wearing tool for years of use. The five different tool rests each have an M10 threaded hole to allow the use of different sized posts depending on the lathe being used. The posts are 4″ long and are available in standard 5/8″ diameter and 1″ diameter. Other diameters are available with special order.
The four tool rests are in 4″, 6″, 8″ and 12″ lengths to match any work the user may have for them. Also included in the system is a curved cast steel tool rest 8″ overall length with two different curvatures to allow getting much closer for better control turning bowls etc.
The Rivolver Tool Rest System can be purchased in multiple kits including a post with each tool rest or the tool rests can be purchased separately for the user to change the post from tool rest to tool rest. The System includes the following:
