A good letter of credit for the money.

This is a very strong, well built piece. The only downside I have, and it's a small one, is that the body(?) is quite large in diameter, which limits caliper/linkage positioning on shorter projects.

Pros
  • Impressive
Cons
  • boring packaging

Works if you use it

Good fit MT3, has ball bearing lube. Was a bit worried when I got it as I couldn't rotate the center by hand, but once I used it I let go of whatever was sticky and now it can be rotated smoothly and easily by hand.

Pros
  • Best in the niche
Cons
  • I will add later

Great Live Center for the money

This Live Center rocks! It has great bearings, great design and will likely outlive its owner. I use it at Wheat State Welding LLC's commercial shop in Derby, Kansas. It is very accurate with very little total stroke displayed. The only thing I would like is a bit on the back so you can remove it from the tailstock by pulling the tailstock all the way back. I think you could cut some threads on the back because there's a hole that's almost a perfect size for a 3/8 thread and put a screw inโ€ฆ

Pros
  • This is great
Cons
  • Some bugs
