Heavy duty #2MT live tailstock center with a 60 degree point. Huge live center for heavy duty workpieces. Cone is 2-1/2" long, by 1-11/16" diameter. This center is large and strong with precision bearings. It runs very true and is also well balanced and smooth for effective turning. Ideal to support your work at the tailstock end of your lathe.

I will note that the #2 MT is shorter than the traditional MT. This is good for some mini-lathes that cannot fit a full sized MT in place. Because of its shorter length, the automatic eject mechanism does not work in my tailstock. This however, is easily solved. I just cut a short piece of dowel (perhaps 0.5 in?), and put it in the tailstock between the internal eject mechanism and the MT of this live center. Reverse screwing the ram pushes the dowel which in turn ejects the live center.
Be aware that the tip is sharp. You will want to move it well out of the way if you are not using the tailstock (e.g. bowl turning).
It is also sharp enough to work its way into wood. I am planing to turn a collar to fit over it when I want to limit penetration.
It looks chunky at first, but one day you'll drill a 1" hole in the end of something and want to stick a live center in the hole, and you'll use the size. Trust me. It's a great product and well worth the price.
