The rough shaft, already supported rather loosely by the chuck in the background, is gently lowered into the open steady rest, to the left of the blue shirt. The steady rest will hold the outer end of the stock during the drilling of the center hole in the right end of the bar, and then will be moved out of the way during the bulk of the machining process.
