This 7/8" Steb centre fits into the jaws of the Patriot or Supernova chuck
This saves having to unscrew the chuck which can be inconvenient. The ring of sharp teeth on the Stebcentre ensures that it bites the wood to give
security and a very positive drive. Because
there are many points of contact there
is minimal risk of splitting. The Stebcentre
can be used with equal confidence on
both soft and hardwoods as well as
In its patented design the Stebcentre
also features a spring-loaded point. By
slightly backing off the tail-stock the
work piece still remains resting between the
revolving centre and the Stebcentre This allows
the turner to inspect his work without the need to switch off the
lathe. Where time is a critical factor the Stebcentre is ideal as the work-
piece can be quickly removed without stopping the lathe. When practicing with, say, a skew chisel you can adjust the pressure on the teeth to allow the steb to slip if you have a dig-in!
