They clamp quickly and powerfully while maintaining to move and slide easily. The clamp screw handle can even be adjusted to be out of your way when clamped.

Important Notes on Fit
  • The listed size of the tool rest base is the swing of the lathe it will fit. e.g. The 12" tool rest base is desgined to fit a lathe with a 12" swing2.
  • All Oneway Tool Rest Bases come configured to fit Oneway lathes. eg. The 10" tool rest base is set up for the Oneway 1018 lathe, the 16" is set up for the Oneway 1640 lathe, etc.
  • Oneway tool rest bases can be set up for non-Oneway lathes, but it will require a custom Clamp Block and an additional fee.
    • If you are ordering for a non-Oneway lathe, you MUST call for assistance.
    • To order a banjo for a non-Oneway lathe, you will need two measurements: the gap in the bed of the lathe and the thickness of the bed. Please have these measurements ready when you call.
    • The custom machining fee for most custom clamp blocks is $25. It is included in the price listed above for other lathes. Larger or more complicated clamp blocks may be more expensive.
    • Delivery time for banjos with custom clamp blocks is 2-6 weeks.

The clamp block used for Oneway Easycore System, Spindle Steadys and Bowl Steadys is NOT compatible with the Toolrest Banjo Base.


Additional Information

1 What the heck are you talking about banjo??? Long ago the tool rest base on a lathe was a much simpler tool - basically a big flat piece of steel roughly in the shape of a banjo. That name caught on and is still used sometimes now to describe the tool rest base.

2 What is swing? Swing is the maximum diameter object that can be turned on a lathe - twice the measurement from the center of the spindle to the bed of the lathe.
