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.
