Product Information:

The multiple drive teeth and spring loaded center point benefit both novice and experienced turners. The spring loaded center point holds your workpiece exactly where you want it and then retracts as tailstock pressure is increased. This keeps the point from drifting with the grain or splitting the workpiece. Because the center retracts, less pressure is needed to engage the teeth, especially helpful in hard woods where a traditional center would have to be driven in to engage the spurs.

  • 5/8" Diameter
  • #2 Morse taper
  • Spring loaded center point
  • Superior bite

    Use threalocker on the set screw

    Comments about 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.

    Great tool for holding small stock in spindle turning. Don't have to worry about splitting small pieces like when using a spur drive.

    While it has a #2 morse taper, it also can be held in a 3/4" collet. Great for pen turning!

    Comments about WoodRiver Multi Tooth Drive Center 5/8" Diameter #2 MT :

    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.
