I have for sale a Limited amount of MT 2 Lathe centers made on a
CNC Metal Lathe Center.
Please check your lathe manual for proper fit.
My set has lasted me over 15 years and is still working great.
For the flute maker in mind. These lathe centers will hold your flute blanks while turning on the lathe. They will help you in keeping a more uniform wall thickness along with less chance of splitting your blanks. You can get very accurate repeatability when taking your blanks on and off your lathe.
The drive end has 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8", 1", 1-1/8", 1-1/4", 1-3/8",and 1-1/2" steps. The tail stock end, with 2 bearings, has 1/4", 3/8", 1/2" and 5/8" sizes. This tail stock end has absolutely no slop and is made to replace your current live center. These step pieces are mounted permanently on a #2 morse tapers which fits into most average size lathes today. Be sure to check your lathe info to make sure it accepts #2 morse tapers before ordering.
