Description

In Detail

With numerous large capacity lathes now available, we decided to design and make a bigger, high quality, heavy duty live tailstock centre specifically for woodturners, as in the past these centres have been produced for metalworkers. The Evolution centre features a removable aircraft grade aluminium nose cone with a replaceable stainless steel 60° tip. The cone is attached to the stainless steel body of the centre using a standard 3/4" x 16tpi (T01)thread. This common thread size allows the fitting of small faceplates and many other woodturning accessories, and with the cone removed a useful ring centre is revealed within. What sets this centre apart from others is a double row angular contact bearing which is designed to take substantial radial and axial loads. This bearing is used at the business end of the centre with a quality single race bearing at the rear to ensure maximum concentricity. In use, the tip rotates while the body remains stationary, making it safer to use and it can also be used more confidently for delicate work. This is cutting-edge technology, using high quality materials and manufacturing processes which give strength, accuracy and protection from rust. With the tip removed, a threaded mandrel of 3/4"x16 (T01) allows a wide range of accessories to be used on the tailstock. The revolving centre is the launch product of the Evolution Series and we will be developing other attachments to further enhance this centre's capabilities. Supplied with a spanner and tommy bar for removal and replacement of the aluminium cone. Available in 1, 2 and 3 Morse taper options.

smooth

Purchased one of these a while ago and it is now the first live centre i go to, it has excellent bearing and offers a smooth operation. I puchased a 50mm faceplate to go with this which enable me to cut different shape live centres. The spanner that came with it is pants it is too thin and bends easily.
If i could make one suggestion that would in my eyes improve the product it would be to make / devise a way to lock the live centre and stop it spinning, That way i could put a 50mm face plate on it with my bit of wood on it lock the bearing and put it in my head stocks morse taper and turn to required shape, now that would be ace.
But to conclude it is a very good live centre
