Two good quality bearings mounted in tandem and greased for life will give excellent play-free performance and minimum vibration when turning.
ONEWAY Live Centers are designed specifically for the wood turner. They have a threaded, rotating, cup center, which is the only component that rotates. This feature contributes to a safer working environment.
Our Live Centers include the necessary accessories to suit most applications.
The unique, threaded cup center provides the following advantages to the wood turner:
The body is precision machined from premium alloy steel, then heat treated, ground, and electro-less nickel plated. These processes give strength, accuracy and rust protection. The core is also made from high strength steel, then heat treated and ground.
We've had several pen turners approach us about an accessory for the Live Center which would be better suited to turning pens. It needed to be small, made from steel, and attach to the Live Center.
You asked, we listened.
Oneway have created a small, easy to install Live Center point called the Pen Turning Point.
It's made from a solid piece of steel so you no longer have to be worried about wearing away the aluminum full point cone you have used in the past.
It's tapered shaft fits straight into the Live Center. It can be easily removed using the knock-out rod supplied with the Live Center.

Live Center Adaptor's - What are they? How are they useful?
ONEWAY have developed a quick and easy way to precisely center a bowl in order to hollow it out. This is achieved using a Live Center Adaptor.
How do I precisely center a bowl?
These adaptors are threaded to screw onto your ONEWAY Live Center, effectively changing the ¾ - 10 thread (of the Live Center) to the same thread as your spindle. With one of these adaptors, a very precise centering method can be used:
You can now screw the chuck onto the headstock, and your bowl will be very precisely centered and ready to be hollowed out or cored.
