Follow Rest For Lathe
Long slender shafts that tend to whip and spring while they are being machined require the use of a follower rest The follower rest is fastened to the carriage and moves with the cutting tool. The upper jaw prevents the work from climbing the cutting tool, The lower jaw prevents the work from springing away from the cutting tool The follower rest jaws are adjusted in the same manner as steady rest jaws. The follower rest is often used when long, flexible shafts are threaded, as shown in Figure 3-108, At the completion of each threading cut, remove any burrs that may have formed to prevent them from causing the work to move out of alignment.
