As a paperweight, this item is more useful
3/5

In spite of the fact that every side of this tool only appears to be flat, there is not a single square. It is not even close to 90 degrees at all that the two jaws of the alignment are parallel. In addition, the jaw contact surface of the workpiece was not cut square to the face of the center find, which caused your workpiece to sit cocked at an angle, thus causing an improper centering. A piece of this tool belongs in the scrap bin, as it is not accurate in any way.

I like how simple it is and how well it works
5/5

It is a very simple method to find the center of round stock and it works perfectly. It has a solid feel and appears to be Using too thick of a marker for the lines or not using the tool properly may have caused the bad reviews. In order to get good results, do not draw the lines with thick pencils or markers or they will be half the thickness of the line you drew off center. Make sure you use a razor blade or exact knife to score fine lines with the greatest degree of accuracy.

Invest your money in something more accurate, this Machinist Center Finder is not It has been an absolute joy to have this tool available so I can quickly and easily locate the center of round wooden dowels, metal shafts, and any other round items that may need centering from time to time
3/5

As you can imagine, I was disappointed when I learned that it was in very bad shape. Unless you are absolutely certain this item is for you, I cannot recommend it. Do not purchase this item if you want to save money.

I think it's a good deal! It is a center finder that I just received
5/5

There is one square I own that is very accurate. As well as being expensive, it also took a long time. This tool had some burrs that hadn't been removed when I used it to check it. Using a diamond file and a polishing stone, this center finder can be made to be dead on accurate and well worth its small price. If one expects pinpoint accuracy, then he or she should buy Buying bubble gum for the price of gold isn't going to get you gold.

This product is straightforward and easy to use
5/5

I just received it and immediately tested it. I found it to work extremely There is a game I have (cost me hundreds of dollars) called the Square Combo Set. By tracing the rod center with one of those attachments, I can locate the rod center on the rod. In order to do so, you need to set up some things first. Basically, I wanted to have something straight-forward and simple Center Square Finder has brought me great results and I'm very happy with it. Attached you will find pictures showing what it looks like in person. The product is great.

Tool for locating the center of a workpiece by Taytool
3/5

The tool is not accurate or true, so it is pretty useless unless it is retooled, which is ridiculous. I agree with other one star reviewers who have said that this tool does not function properly. This is not a paper weight I would recommend purchasing. The following are the words for Robyn.

I don't think it is accurate, but it is a useful The material is heavy and sturdy
3/5

Despite that, as other reviews pointed out, the build specifications are off and it will not be able to identify The moment I got it, I threw in a piece of round metal and marked a line. Spun the metal 180 degrees and sure enough, the line I had previously marked Would have been helpful if they had fixed this, as it would have been quite handy.

Before using, you must verify the accuracy of the information
3/5

There was a huge misalignment in the center line! It was necessary to file the divider in order to make it true. With this update, it can now find the The quality of most products does not seem to be controlled. In order to make certain the products I buy work properly, I have to work on them. It seems that workmanship is no longer a point of pride for many.
