Steve,

They are not very difficult to make. You can take look at a bunch of photos on Google
and fabricate your own if you can't find one. Here's a photo of one I made several years ago,
simple but very functional. It's on an old Springfield lathe.

I have the same machine except 17" that I need the steady rest for.
While looking I had come across a few for a 19" lathe, but no 17's.....

Steve,
Sorry, pulled it out and it only has a 7" space between the V and mount. Shame, It's a nice rest. Earl
