Inexpensive safety center/dead center
I think this is a fairly good deal if you want to try a safety center in the headstock as a drive.
Ran across a new Sears/Craftsman dead center on the bay. These are 2MT. They can be scalloped on the end the way Lacer shows in his skew video. $4.00 + $3.75 shipping with BIN.
Use the “” and search for "Craftsman 29847 Tailstock Cup". Seller was showing 20+ available
Ordered mine on Sunday and arrived today (Wednesday).
Now I have to turn some spindle orientation stuff to get my $7.75 out of it.
Did seem to work well without the scallops on a test run. I may leave mine plain.
No connection to the seller...just passing it along.
