Unhappy woodturning steady ring

Does anyone know how to make a steady ring which contains wheels to steady a piece while turning?

Get the book Fixtures and Chucks for Woodturning. It shows how to make several types. The book shows how to make these type of fixtures yourself. It's not a book on a lot of store bought chucks but is full of instructions to make these things for your lathe. I find it a great resource for making my own stuff & it covers many ways of attaching your turnings to the lathe.

Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should!

Doc Green's book is much more useful than just the steady rests. It's great.
