I am curious if anyone here uses any of these (or another brand) center saver (coring) systems. If so, likes, dislikes etc… Thanks!

Good thing you mentioned that you were talking about coring systems, because the "center saver" is a tail stock center with a hole in it to accept a pen turning mandrel….

Having said that, I've never used a coring system, but have read mixed reviews about them, and have a friend who uses one.

Which one, in particular, are you considering?
Wildwood - thanks for the links!

Underdog - I will work on the lingo! I have a mandrel / center saver for pen turning too.

I think the Woodcut looks like the most foolproof way. I actually don't see the OneWay for sale on their site. The McNaughton I see on the Lee Valley and Woodcraft sites.

Just wish there were more reviews! Thanks guys.

Kelton McNaughton bowl savers

Have never used a bowl saver, more familar with McNaughton system but have read and heard great reviews on all three sets.
I have the Oneway and love it. It is pretty much foolproof. Not cheap, though. I have used the McNaughton, too. It has a bit longer learning curve, and is a bit more flexible in the shape of the core that you cant take out.

Here is the link on the Oneway site to the coring system.
