    Looking for a 24 inch tool rest with 1 inch diameter posts five and three quarters long. Also need too rest base to fit this tool rest. must be high enough to accomodate sixteen inch swing.

    If you find one with smaller posts you can always sleeve the posts to fit your banjo.

    That is a really long tool rest and the only ones that long that I have seen with two posts are for spindle lathes with swings of about 12 inches. I know of a production turner here who made his own long tool rests using angle iron and bar stock. They weren't pretty, but they were cheap and met his needs.
