      How rebuildable are the little live centers for the 618?

      It looks like the bearing is simply pressed into a sleeve, and then center
      is pressed into the bearing....

      Does anyone have any insight into this?

      I have a pair of centers, one is quite messed up, the other is like new. I
      want to put a new bearing in the ruined one, and then build a new point with
      a longer nose for small diameter work

      Before I get going on this I thought I'd consult with the list

      Thanks,

        Steve, could you post the results of this project. I'd be interested
        to hear how it went. I have a similar need.

        That is about the size of it. Pull the center free and then you should be able to pull the bearings out of the shell. Bob May http://nav.to/bobmay
