I damaged my ONEWAY live center a few weeks back and finally got around you repairing it this morning! I placed a split pin in the “locking hole” and then installed the live center in the headstock. A few minutes of turning and filling and I’m back in business.

For more pictures and a full explanation check out the article on my site, DIY Repair, ONEWAY Live Center.

I would put the live center on the head stock and tape it up so it will not spin and use a fine file. I would put the file flat against the tail stock and advance it slowly so it files the live center flat. I would not go more then 1/16 to 1/8. Last have the head stock go as slow as it can go or less then 40 rpm.

More than one way to skin a cat Arlin :) This is rather similar to the method I used.

Sorry buddy I read it wrong. I thought you were asking HOW to do it and not that you DID do it. Give me a slap on the back of the head. lol
