This center is large and strong with precision bearings. It runs very true and is also well balanced and smooth for effective turning. Ideal to support your work at the tailstock end of your lathe. 1 11/16" overall diameter.
To determine if the MT#2 is the correct item for you, measure the big end (i.e., the open hole) of your tailstock. #2 is 0.700."
Made in China.
For use with the between center bushings. Place the appropriately sized 60 degree dead center into the head stock and a 60 degree live center into the tail stock and you are ready to use the between center bushings. Due to the mandrel free design of the between center bushings your turning is much more stable and less susceptible to out of round problems.
