I know there are others who make tool rests with the drill rod, but Robust was the first. I am trying to see if I can get a curved rest like the blue one with drill rod on it. Brent wasn't interested in them. My tool guy thought it would be fairly simple at first, but the support piece is a compound curve at about a 15 degree angle (to fit inside a 12 inch diameter bowl). They have to bump bend it. Not too difficult to have a laser cutter cut the pieces though. Still working on it. It might prove to be too expensive to make. They have to bump bend the support arm.

Bump bend means they have to do a bunch of single bends about 1/4 inch apart, and the bend point has to be square to the edge, and with the S curve, it pretty much has to be done by hand. I don't know if a die can be made for it since it bends at a 15 degree angle. I am working on it. For sure, a problem of the compound curve rather than a straight radius.
