Building the Jim Chambers Lancaster Flintlock: Making a steady Rest

Not far into it I needed a good steady rest. I decided to go for something with some substance and easy adjustability, together with no cost.

Finally after 35 years that old Mercedes Benz V belt pulley came in handy, I pulled it from a 1972 4.5ltr when I worked at Wood Motors on Gratiot back in the 70's.

That as a base I fashioned some perf-tube, dropped in a 5/8-11 threaded rod, and made a cradle lined with leather to top it off.
