I have a Delta 46-460 lathe. The center is quite difficult to remove from the tailstock. If I use the knock out bar, it just knocks out the central attachment leaving the revolving center in the Morse 2 of the tailstock.
If I use a wood block on the back of the bearing and hit it with a hammer, nothing happens. If I use a half inch dia. steel bar and hit it with a mallet, nothing happens. If I hit the steel bar with a ball pein hammer a few times, it will come out.
A less radical method of removal would be appreciated.
Thanks and Enjoy,
