Lathe Steady Rest

I am going to make the Lathe Steady rest from an article by Ray Lanham. I tried to get the detail plans from american woodworker link in the article but It was not available. Does anyone have the detail plans that they could send me?

This tutorial looks about right for a home made steady rest, provided you have the tools available. There is a link inside to the actual plans.

But if you just go out and google lathe steady rest plans you will probably come up with many variations.

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.
