Here is a guide on how to make one. Home Made Live Center | Rocky Roost Wood Turning | Syd Sellers

I jury rigged one sort of like it using bearings from this guy. http://www.ebay.com/sch/irvineman/m....p2047675.l2562

I used one thrust bearing at the base, and 2 roller skate bearings on the shaft. This was all set up in a block of maple. Sorry no pics, it was for a onetime project and I have no clue as to where it is at.
