About the pool cue live center
We designed this center at the request of some of our customers who use our machines (or modifications of our machines) to make pool cues. They needed a live center with an extended nose, to give them room for their cutters. This would allow them to start cutting from the tip of the pool cue without needing extra material to hold onto.
The center body itself is case harden steel which turns on two preloaded sealed ball bearings. It is fitted with a #0 Morse taper to fit our tailstock. The run-out of the 60-degree tip of the live center is .002″ or less.
The sealed bearings are permanently lubricated and require no maintenance.
NOTE: The bearings are pressed in at the factory. Preload on the bearings is adjusted before the nose piece is installed. Once assembled, the Pool Cue Live Center is not considered user-serviceable.
