I am looking for alternate tool rests for my Jet 1642, the spindle dia. is 1" . I visited Axminster in Nuneaton yesterday, and tried a rest for one of their lathes in a Jet lathe, there spindle size is 25mm. I wondered whether the small amount of movement would be a problem, and where I could get the correct size rests from. I did see, can't remember where, a system where you get a spindle with a screw thread on it, and then bought the size rests that you want. My problem with that is the problem of the thread coming loose when you don't want it to, and not coming loose when you do!!
