Use threalocker on the set screw
WoodRiver Multi Tooth Drive Center 5/8" Diameter #2 MT
This is a great tool, it grips well and the teeth are sharp. I've owned two of them, and find one problem:
Since the point is spring loaded and held with a set screw, if the set screw comes loose, the spring shoots the point out, usually to some place where it will never be found! This has happened to me twice. So I asked the local store manager if they sold a repair kit with the spring and point. They don't, but he referred me to the technical phone number (on the catalog), and Woodcraft sent me the replacement parts gratis.
So I would suggest either using threadlocker on the set screw, or maybe using a file to damage the treads just enough so the set screw won't back out.

I got two of these. One I cut in half to fit a live centre system. I got a multi tooth drive and live centre for less than half the price of a dedicated live centre.

Excellent tool to hold small stock
Great tool for holding small stock in spindle turning. Don't have to worry about splitting small pieces like when using a spur drive.
Well-made, beautifully machined.
Excellent drive center
Use this on a Delta 46-460 to mount and turn wood for stoppers, grinders and bowls.
Excellent steb drive. In my opion it works a well as the more expensive ones.
Works in a collet chuck too!
While it has a #2 morse taper, it also can be held in a 3/4" collet. Great for pen turning!
Very good drive center. The retractin point keeps the wood from splitting. Good heavy piece of steel. Well worth the low price.
This is a great product. I now have both the 1" and 5/8" drive center for different sized spindles. The salesman was right when he told me "you'll eventually end up with both sizes" when I asked which size was better for general spindle work. The teeth are sharp and easily grip hard woods like hickory and purpleheart. I no longer have to hammer in a drive center to ensure a good grip on a spindle; a small center tap and tailstock pressure to engage the teeth is all you need. I will never use my old spur again.
