Getting a little more done. Made a pair of cylinders flat on top and flat on bottom with an o-ring grove.

Couldn't find any aircraft tubing in the wall thickness I wanted at a reasonable price so I bought heavy wall for much less and am turning a few pounds off.

A length like that is difficult to keep a uniform size over the full length. I don't envy you on that task. ;)

Never ever used it.

Yep I had my steady rest out and used it twice in ever pass except the first to keep the length short enough that it wouldn't ring like a bell, it started ringing on the next pass after the picture. Just didn't think to take any pictures of it prolly cuz it looks way more worn out than yours. Once it got below .080 or so, I was really wishing for a travel rest. If I stopped and made one for sure I would never need it again. Just held a gloved hand about 3 inches from the tool on the back side. Used it when i cut the tube to length also.

You are a master at improvising Dusty. A follower rest can work great if the bed is not worn and the carriage is good and taunt to the bed ways. The trusty ole file sure comes in handy along with a dial indicator to check for run-out as one files along the sizing. That singing is really difficult to silence sometimes. I know you will get the job done though.
