    Default Needed a rest or 2

    At last I got round to making an Internal & External rest for bowls.
    As you can see, I am not a welder, but was very happy with the outcome.
    8mm Flat bar with 13mm S/S rod welded on top. Both 300mm long.

    Do you have a roller at hand to bend the 8mm bar?.

    Those rests look good, I'd like to do the same. How did you bend them.

    Thanks for comments.
    Bars & rods were heated in the Jarrahdale fire until bright red & then I beat the hell our of them until they were the shape I needed.
    The S/S rods lost a heap of it's hardness due to heating, but still works OK.
    The paint on top of the rest didn't last long the first time I used it.
    Gave them both a good try-out & still very happy.
