3 Oneway Tool Rests. 6", 10"; and 14" all with 1" tool posts. All in good condition. Height from bottom of post to top edge is approx. 6-5/8". The 14" has been painted over in Vicmarc blue, but you can see the Oneway off white peeking through!

$75 for all plus actual shipping cost. These will fit in a USPS Medium Flat Rate Box so shipping is $15.50 anywhere in the Continental US.

Price reduced to $65 for all 3 Oneway Tool Rests. Will consider selling individually. Any or all can ship via USPS Flat Rate box.

I wonder if I could adapt them to fit the 25mm banjo in my harbor freight lathe... I'd love to get some better tool rests (I have a sorby post and 6" and S-curve, but really want something like the oneways - cast iron tool rests really and truly suck... ) I'll have to experiment, but if I can find a way to get them to securely fit in my H-F Banjo, I'm definitely interested.. I'll have to poke around and see if I can find a way to fit them.. if I can make a 1 inch post work, you may just have them sold.

Brian, I would try to find someone w/ machinst skills to drill/bore your banjo out to 1". I believe that would be easier than modifying multiple tool rests to fit. Rick

Brian, turn a 1" dowel and see how it fits. Alternatively, carefully measure the post on your existing rest. The difference between 1" (25.4mm) and 25mm is small enough that a slight tooling variance may mean its usable.

Yup that is what I need to look into, If I remember I'll check my lathe tomorrow and see - I do have some 1 inch diameter stock I think and machining out the banjo to 1 inch would not be a problem (I'm no stranger to machining metal, etc.. I think I may have a old 1 inch reamer laying around gathering dust in one of the many toolboxes out in the shop) SO I'll think on it a bit, and If I think I can manage it, I'll PM you tomorrow to arrange payment and shipping.. so long as I can get the banjo to take 1 inch, I guess you can call it sale pending.. (I also have to check my post length, but if need be I can always cut them down shorter, like I did with the sorby post)

I'll take 'em. Sending PM. ( I drilled a 1 inch hole in a 2x4 scrap to get exactly 1.001" diameter, then compared it by putting my old 25mm rests in it - little bit of brass shim stock, they'd fit snug too, if I need to shim them to fit, so I'll get my banjo machined out to 1" after getting the 1 inch posts to get a precise fit)
