What’s the difference between a Live & Dead Center?
Funny you should ask (because you probably already know what you’re looking for here). We can’t resist offering this excellent ‘dialogue thread’ from Popular Machinist some years back (2003) that truly identifies a lot of product-in-use descriptions and capabilities. See if you would explain it the same way as these machinists do for high speed turning jobs and milling operations with variable speeds: See The difference between a Live & Dead Centre
