1/2″ Robert Sorby #RCSTB250 Revolving Stebcentre #2 MT

1/2″ Robert Sorby #RCSTB250 Revolving Stebcentre #2 MT - With a light setting this offers safety for the novice turner because the workpiece simply stops revolving should a dig-in occur, rather than causing kick back. This offers many advantages. In time critical production turning, the teeth can be backed off with the point still in place, so the workpeice can be stopped and checked without removing it from the lathe, and finished pieces and blanks can be exchanged by backing off the tail stock, rather than starting and stopping the lathe. By winding in the tail stock the degree of “bite” can be varied while still keeping the center point firmly located. Comes in diameters of 1/2″, 7/8″, and 1-1/4″. Size refers to drive face diameter. Inspired by norwegian master turner petter herud, this revolving (or live) version of the stebcentre allows the turner to experiment with off-center or eccentric turning. Made in england. These revolutionary spur drives combine a spring loaded center point with a ring of razor sharp teeth.
