It is just a long flexible rod with a tip in one side and a taper for tailstock on other.
Actually, the attached center is superfluous. Simply take a rod, point it on one end and center drill it on the other end. Then the center drilled end can be placed on the tailstock center and the rod used as shown in the video.

We did them slightly different. Tail end was center drilled for a ball shaped rod protruding from a drill chuck. Pointed end was spring loaded slip fit, worked great keeping the point in punch mark.
Yours is simpler, and no parts to keep track of.
