Use a bit of paste wax to help eliminate CA build up on live and dead center.

I use tapered bushings made of HDPE or Nylon when finishing with CA and for sanding. Protects my centers.

They are. I have seen some also made for a mandrel with a 60 degree bevel to work for all size tubes. I turn my own. HDPE and Nylon rod are available from Online Metals.
