Glad you weren't injured. (ego not withstanding)

I like the live center chuck mount because it's no different than using the tailstock like you normally would. The piece is not only supported but effectively "caged" between centers where there is much less likelihood of it being able to escape.
The dead center alignment tool is just that, only to align the piece but must be removed when under power.
Turn safely everyone

I have the Oneway and use it exclusively now, but before I got it, I made one out of wood. Since I wasn't going to use it with the lathe running, I didn't concern myself with the small runout it had. I used it to hold the piece - still on the chuck - while I either set up a Longworth, Donut or vacuum chuck.

All you need to make one out of wood is a 1.25 x 8 nut to use as a die and a 3/4 x 10 bolt to use as a tap. Total cost is a few bucks and a bit of your time. (I already had the Oneway live center for my tailstock.)

Thanks, Grant, for your description of making one out of wood.  I have the nut and bolt required and will give it a try.  Ned
