This steady rest came in a box with the Atlas 10" I got a couple of years ago. I THINK it's actually for a SB 9". I added an adapter plate to make it fit the Atlas.The title says it all. I can tell you that the 9 inch steady rests sold new on eBay do not fit.
Pm me if you have one laying around.
Thanks very much for the response. I don't have access to an Atlas rest. What would you need in cash for the one in the photos?This steady rest came in a box with the Atlas 10" I got a couple of years ago. I THINK it's actually for a SB 9". I added an adapter plate to make it fit the Atlas.
If this is a SB steady rest, and you know of a good deal on a steady for the Atlas 10", maybe we can both benefit from a trade. This steady works great, and the adapter is easily removed. The only alteration I made to the casting was to add 2 tapped holes to the bottom to affix the adapter plate.
Let me know if you're interested.

Thanks for the response. I'll check the links. I have the mill now, so I can make one. There is a machine tool reseller about a hundred miles north of me. I have wanted to visit his shop since I moved to the area.If you can't find one they aren't that hard to make. Here are some examples of homemade steady rests
Yes, I am afraid that one is s bit too large. But thanks for your time.Just saw this on CL. https://slo.craigslist.org/tls/d/templeton-lathe-steady-rest/6903053190.html I have no connection to the seller. Don't know if it will fit your lathe. Maybe the seller will ship it to you. If he won't ship it I go through Templeton about once a month when I go to see my grand kids and would pick it up and ship it to you.
