Talked to the guy that bought the old lathe I showed awhile back.
He couldn't thank me enough for showing him how to run it and a few tips and tricks.
He bought a bull nose live center right after I left his house.
It fits in the tail stock and then into larger diameter pipe to keep it supported.

Loss of Knowledge.
 
It is getting more and more difficult to find people that know what any machine shop equipment is or what it does.:(
Their lack of curiosity is dismaying to say the least.
