Carbide Micro Centre Tool

Eternal Tools

Micro centres can be produced using this Micro Centre Tool from the tailstock in watch making and general engineering lathes.
Equally, micro centres can be easily produced when using a drilling or milling machine.
Importantly, this tool eliminates the skillful use of the graver when a centre is required for drilling holes to restore damaged pivots in clock or watch arbors.

Centres with this tool are produced speedily and accurately!

Other questions and our answers

Do you provide a sharpening service for the centre tool. I can imagine that it needs to be accurately ground in order to achieve an accurate centre. Mine is slightly chipped but still seems to work well. I think I ran the lathe too fast when I used it the first time. It's a great little tool!

We're pleased to hear you like it Brian, thanks.  We don't offer a sharpening service for these, but many people use a diamond grinding wheel or a diamond file.  
Your lathe speed shoud be run slow with the carbide centre tool.
