Subject:
screw centers, etc.

>What are the relative advantages of screw centers and cup centers? I'm a bit new to these devices and am wondering if they are worth the investment.

I have an old ('72) Oliver 2159. I know that cup centers can be had in a pretty standard #2 morse taper, but the screw centers I've come across the seller wants about $35 - again, not being terribly familiar with these things, I'm wondering if its worth it or if there are alternatives - or even if a screw center has any real advatage over a faceplate or jaw chuck.

thanks

Georg
