Is there a way to adjust the positioning of the three bearings to adjust the “follower” bearings? Or is this a one time application. I like the roller bearings.

Look at left lower pic and you can see how it is adjusted. I made it just to see if it would work. The stock I was using was 3/8 dia.
I think I would call them the “leader bearings”

OK The lower left shot clears it all up. This didn't show in the upper left picture that I saw previously, thanks.

I made a similar setup while turning a 5/8 shaft that was tapered and could not have a center in it. Instead of 3 bearings it used 1 and the shaft went through it. The taper was taken in one cut with the taper attachment.
