Are you tired of bending your Mandrel and ruining the point on your live center?  If so, then this fail-safe live center accessory is for you.  Mandrels usually bend when you tighten the tailstock center point into the end indentation of your mandrel.  This system solves that problem because yourmandrel shaft goes through the hollow live center. Your  bushings press against the center with  zero pressure on the mandrel shaft. The tube and bushing assembly tightens up by turning your tailstock quill adjustment wheel. Great for beginners and students. 

 Other features:

No need for extra spacer bushing as the system adapts to the length of your project

No need for the knurled nut that sometimes gets lost, misplaced or stripped.

Adapts to nearly every mandrel on the market with a shaft diameter of .245" or smaller.

    Is the taper on the PKMSTS1 smaller than the PKMSTS2?

    Yes, The PKMSTS1 is a MT1 taper and the PKMSTS2 is a MT2 taper. Many of the lathes are MT2, but some of the smaller lathes are MT1. If you google your model lathe, most of time the specs include if it is MT1 or MT2.
