Ultra Drive Centers
These centers feature a unique serrated circular ring that delivers extra holding power. The spring-loaded center allows you to position the center point into the wood blank and use the tailstock RAM to apply pressure onto the serrated ring. Because there are no sharp edges being driven into the wood, you reduce the chance of the stock splitting. Just apply enough pressure until the center grips the stock - that's all there is too it!

Safe Drivers
The Safe Driver offers a unique design when it comes to drive centers. Unlike all other spur centers, which have teeth to grip the wood, the safe driver is like a live center with a drive point in the center and a gripping ring around teh outside. it is the pressure applied against the cetner and the wood that causes the wood to be turned. If you find the Safe Driver spinning around the wood, just apply a little more pressure from the tailstock.

This little device is also a great training tool for someone just learing to turn. The Safe Driver will teach them to have better control with their chisels, not allowing them to take too aggressive of a bite. This center is also safer because if a chisel catches a spur center it will definately damage the chisel; not so with the Safe Driver.
