Spring Loaded Interchangeable Tip Live Centers

Precision bearing placement for greater rigidity required by CNC and screw machines. Independent inner housing provides rigidity while allowing center shaft to retract with workpiece. Spring loaded design compensates for center variations, without damage to work piece or center tip. This assures operator of uniform constant tension. Interchangeable shaft allows versatility of points, reducing inventory, costs, and down time. Point configuration designed to meet required tool clearance.
