Greetings
Little machine shop sells three tool rest attachments for metal lathes. I rigged one up used it a couple times then decided that it was just as easy to use lathe tooling.

Although I like Little Machine Shop and have bought a lot from them, I don't find the product mentioned at this link to be very satisfactory because of toolpost instability issues on the particular lathe I have (Sieg C3 ... very similar to several LMS lathes).

Or you could make your own manual tool rest for your metal lathe.


I've since shortened the width of the rest. I'll make the next one a bit more sturdy but this was made of materials I had on hand. There is a threaded plate below the ways that the bolt goes through to tighten the movable rest.

Used lathes for sale here. . Most look pretty big, if not huge, but your friend might find a small one:
