(What's this)
SUMMARY: A NICE LIVE CENTER THAT MAY NEED A LITTLE TWEAKING TO WORK PROPERLY. BACKGROUND: I have 5 lathes. The chance to try out the WEN live center was too good to pass up. FIT AND FINISH: This 60 degree cone, morse 2 taper, dual bearing live center looks beastly. It is solid and heavy in your hand. The machined surfaces look good. The bearings run quiet and true. OPERATION: The MT2 snugged into the tailstock as good as any of my other centers. It was quiet and smooth while turning a small piece of stock. However, I noticed after a few minutes that the bearing retaining nut had unscrewed. I tightened it down with a small scratch awl and resumed turning, but a few minutes later it had unscrewed again. At that point I dismounted the blank, removed the center, cleaned the oil from the spanner nut, applied some Locktite 242 blue thread lock to the nut, reassembled the unit, and set it aside to cure. The next day I remounted it and turned for about 5 minutes with no further problem. SUMMARY: Works well after fixing retaining nut. PROS: Sturdy, quiet, rugged CONS: Loose retaining nut

WEN Live Center is a Huge Step Up over using a Dead Tailstock Center. Fit in my Rockwell Delta production lathe perfectly. Lined up with Headstock center perfectly. Nicely machined and finished.Great value for the price.Any home woodworker will find this a great option for turning wood, composites or metal.
