A quality made live center in #2 Morse Taper. Machined and assembled in the U.S. The center point can be removed (leaving a 5/16" through hole) or flipped to present a flat 3/8" diameter pad when a point into the wood is not desirable. Two different cones are offered as an accessory on this site that thread onto the cup portion of the center. Bearings are warrantied for 5 years.
