14” Standard modern follow rest


Brand New Member
Hello folks, is there any chance someone on here would have a standard modern follow rest?

My lathe, 14x40 Utilathe didn’t come with a follow rest or steady rest.
I would like to build them both eventually and have a project to do that will need a follow rest.

I’m just looking for some dimensions of an original if possible.

Attached is a pic from the manual of a factory one.
