Description

In Detail

We think that this is the best universal centre available today. There are two sealed bearings in the body and the working end has a taper for mounting the various interchangeable tips, guaranteeing that they run perfectly concentric. There is an ejector ring behind the tip which is operated by two tommy bars. The centre is supplied with three tips, a standard 60° cone for general work, a 9.5mm(3/8") diameter by 16mm(5/8") long point for small or close work and a cup or ring centre for open grain or split turning. In addition to the standard tips there are three additional tips, included which will further increase the scope of the centre. A 30mm diameter mini faceplate with a central screw which is very useful when turning long stemmed goblets, a 90° pipe centre for use when locating in on a pre-bored hole and a conical centre for quick centring on small work or as a support when turning spherical forms. We hope that you will agree that we have covered just about every possibility and that the Multihead Centre deserves a place in your tool box. Available in either 1 or 2 MT.

Good old Axminster again

This is a terrific piece of kit built to the highest standards and everything works extremely well. The addition of some larger cones would take the centre into the fantastic class. Have used this centre for a few years and the ease of use plus the quality of concentricity it is the best I have ever come across. Having said that the cost of the tool is well covered when you get such a high quality tool. Forget the cheap ones and the American ones this is the best and it is British.

Versatile, adaptable and repairable.

I'm an architectural turner. I believe my center is over 12 years old and it is very useful. The rotating outer body easily allows the making of custom tips. Usually from aluminium. All bearings wear out. These bearings are common and I've just installed the third set. The main tip and body have diameters just under 3/4",1", 1 1/4" and 1 1/2". This is very handy for boring your stock before you turn it. For other bore diameters simply make a new tip. Note: Be sure to allow sufficient size at the body end for extraction ring to work.

Excellent quality But...

Excellent built quality, but I had expected the extra cones being somewhat larger in diameter á la the Oneway wich is aprx twice the size.
Their size is no-where to be found before ordering. Had I known how small they are, I would have gone for the Oneway live center

Very versatile and well engineered.

I've been using one of these sets for over a year and am generally delighted with it. It solves virtually all tail support issues very simply and quickly.
My only criticism would be that the design of the Morse Taper isn't self ejecting on my tail stock, an annoyance, not a problem.

superb

bought this product a few days ago. Arrived the following day, brilliant service from Axminster people. Have already been using this and finding it extremely good, especially the hollow concave head used with a rubber ball to support a small hollowed vase. Brilliant all round.
