The W.R. Smith T-rest turns a Sherline lathe into a first-class clockmaker's lathe. The T-rest supports a handheld "graver", the traditional metal turning tool of watch- and clockmakers.

A T-rest is used by watchmakers to support a handheld cutting tool called a "graver". World-renowned watch- and clockmaker, William R. Smith has designed a T-rest especially for the Sherline lathe. It is constructed from solid steel and clamps to the lathes bed in seconds. If you are interested in watch or clock repair or construction but wanted a tool system more versatile and less expensive than a jewelers lathe, this T-rest makes a Sherline lathe a most attractive choice.
A graver can also be used by any metalworker for hand turning unique shapes on the lathe. It looks similar to a small wood-turning tool and is used in a similar fashion while rested on the T-rest. To learn more about using the T-rest and about how to make your own graver, see the links below.
