    BAD example of a live center by woodriv

    Comments about WoodRiver Pro Live Center Set, #2 Morse Taper Pro Set :

    the inserts fit loose in the arbor so they wobble in your work. Not much good for wood turning. Who ever designed these has not used them on a lathe.Woodriver is not showing me qaulity products. This is just above junk.

    Comments about WoodRiver Pro Live Center Set, #2 Morse Taper Pro Set :

    I purchased this product about a year ago and am not satisfied with it's construction and quality. The individual pieces fit loosely in the live center and vibrate when used. The single magnet seems to make the inserts off center. I recently purchased a Nova live center set for the same price and it is of very good quality.

    Comments about WoodRiver Pro Live Center Set, #2 Morse Taper Pro Set :

    This set is perfect for turning fine highly detailed {hand spinning} Russian Spindles! Holds my work securely & doesn't mar the wood surfaces or steel point spindle tip insertions. The magnetic tips switch out in seconds & you're right back to turning again! One tiny complaint, is that some of the pointed tips are difficult to get OUT of the case - but I keep a magnetic tool pickup handy for just such things as that!

    Comments about WoodRiver Pro Live Center Set, #2 Morse Taper Pro Set :

    I used the set several times, noting that the single magnet that holds the accessories into the live center probably should have two mates at 120 degrees to each other. The machining tolerances allow the accessory tips too much play in the mounting hole, but for general, non-critical turning, it's ok.

    Peddler Larry??!?! What the?

    Comments about WoodRiver Pro Live Center Set, #2 Morse Taper Pro Set :

    Sorry, Peddler, but a live center means it rotates with the stock, rather than being stationary. Live centers are ALWAYS on the tailstock. By definition, the headstock houses the motor and therfore requires a DRIVE center to turn the work. Good lord. Where in the heck did you learn how to turn? Ugh.

    This is actually a tailstock set, NOT LIVE which has to with the headstock, Too many people think Live means it has bearings and spins. Live means it is a part of the headstock, this is not. Nice tool anyway, I will get a lot of use from it.
