    Cylindrical Center

    Cylindrical center for the mill mostly. Just a bit of 1018. Easy to make on the lathe by turning on centers. Fits in places that you could not place a conventional square and while it is not the optimum length for checking lathe alignment it works for a quick check.

    Oops. More accurately called a Cylindrical Square.

    Cheers, JR
