If you plan to do any long hole boring, through the tailstock, perhaps for a lamp, then you are going to need one of these chaps. This two-bearing rotating hollow centre has a 5/16" bore throughout to suit a standard auger, and is supplied with a removable point so that it can be used as a standard centre, and an alignment tool. Aimed primarily at long hole boring applications, this centre can be used as a tail centre where there is a risk of splitting, much like the principle of the detachable ring centre described above.
Supplied complete with centring pin to assist when re-mounting work.
