    compact MT2 live center

    Hey guys (and gals if any) me again,

    Been thinkin of this project for some time now. It's been a fun and somewhat challenging endeavor believe me. With the magic of some clever editing the trials and tribulations seem invisible but be assured I had a few with this one. Anyway the final outcome was well worth it. I hope you enjoy the journey as much as I had doing it,


    regards stevoh

    I subscribed before your video was even halfway through. Even if the project weren't enough to keep me watching (it is), you have a very entertaining presentation style (camera angles, humour).

    Stevohdee,

    Great job on the compact live center! Many years ago I had a small live center known as a "Nyroll" center. It also was quite compact and was very nice to use.

    What is the length of overhang from the end of the #2 MT?

    Stevohdee,

    Thank you for the dimensions! It sure looks like a nice project.
    I did not have success searching for the "Nyroll Center" either. It was sold in the US about 50 years ago and maybe was not a successful product. It had a very small head about the size of a Morse taper shank and was very handy for getting in close to small diameter work.
    Dick
