Mounting Tool Rest for wood working on lathe

I am using the Central Machine HF lathe with the Little Machine Shop wood turning tool rest. Having difficulty mounting tool rest to the compound feed tool holder. Anyone have any pictures of how you mount this. Thanks, Jim.

Thanks for the info. I am using the Central Machine 7 x 10. I have the LittleMachineShop 2498 and actually got it to "sort of" work. The set screw for the tool rest height adjustment is on the back side of the tool post. I am going to drill and tap a new set screw hole on the front side. (The picture on line is backwards). This tool rest has very limited position capability, but I guess it's all it has.

Notice no set screw on the front of the tool holder for adjustment.

Here is a link to a picture. http://www.katzmeow.net/ogr/toolrest.JPG

Thanks again, Jim.

Rather than a set screw, I'd probably use a threaded shaft with a knurled or star shaped knob. McMaster Carr has them.

Have you spoken to Chris about the reversal of the adjustment screw?
