    Lathe roller centering tool

    Hi!I
    I decided to build a centering tool for lathe, after seeing some project on this forum .
    The bearing is a 20x52x12mm unit, used in 50cc 2 stroke engine for Piaggio scooter (long and short arm models), I have also some spares with lateral shield.


    The tool shank is a hex bar, I chose this profile because it's easy to be tightened on the lathe. I machined a round part for the bearing and a little step to help removal (if needed). I milled one side in order to keep the tool near the holder.

    This type of tool could be useful in order to center a part inside the lathe chuck. Applying a light pressure on the bearing (against the part) it makes the bearing spin , the combination help the part find the center.
    Unluckily it's late night and I can't run my lathe for fast video, I put a YouTube video pretty useful to see how it works
