I’ve been using this one for some time with no problems.

I bought the Penn State 60 degree live center ( http://www.pennstateind.com/store/LCENTLT2.html ) two years ago … no complaints at all. It performs like a champ and is on sale for $15.95.

Got mine from Little Machine Shop, fast shipping and reasonable prices, I highly recommend them.

If you turn a variety of things and want a high quality system with lots of capability, look at the Nova Live Center System http://www.woodcraft.com/Product/2020433/22893/Nova-Live-Center-System.aspx
Note it has three bearings.
