I appreciate my OneWay live center. It is well made and a good design. The design enable me to tap other items to enhance its capabilities.

In this video, I make a finial steady that mounts to the live center and keeps thin finials from breaking while I’m turning them.

I also show how to drill out a #6 rubber stopper. I use a rubber stopper whenever I need pressure from the live center but do not want the wood to be marred.

I use a standard 3/4″ 10 tpi tap from a industrial supply company.

The #6 rubber stopper came from Amazon.
