An invaluable aid when turning long, thin items such as standard lamps and stair spindles. Supplied with a raising block for fitting the steady to the AWVSL1000, simply omit the block for use with the AWVSL900. N.B. Suitable for diameters up to 60mm.

Not greatThis steady isn't that steady. The arms holding the bearings are a bit insusbstantial. The bearings themselves are too small and narrow, and tend to dig into the work. There is too much vibration. The casting is the best bit of the tool. It would be good to see Axminster selling a really effective steady with strong arms and rubber wheels which minimise vibration in the work. i ended up making my own from roller blade wheels and birch ply, works much better than this one.
