Much better grip than the stock 4 prong drive center that came with my lathe.
Eric Francis
It worked just as expected and is good value compared to what you would pay in the uk for something almost the same buy with confidence.
stephen shreeve
This is a surprisingly excellent center for turning small to medium sized work.

I have used a Sorby and another similar model and I think this one is every bit as nice as the Sorby, biggest difference is the size of the "teeth", Sorby's are smaller. I don't think this difference affects usage.

In all honesty I was amazed when I opened the plastic case it comes in and saw it. The construction and fit and finish are extremely good.

Update 12/08:
We now have 2 of these at the facility where I teach as well and they have held up great. Many of my students are so pleased with them they end up buying them as well.

Much of the challenge in wood turning is holding the wood. You can use a heavy center after cutting cross slots and a drilling a hole; 3 finger chucks to squeeze the wood; face plates after drilling holes. But if you want something quick to hold 1-2 inch stock with no preparation, this is it. I use it at least 50 percent of the time. Its spring loaded center and fine teeth allow me to mount wood quickly in about 30 seconds. The scar that it leaves is usually less than 1/32 inch. Best of all, I've never had it split the wood like my other centers.

Overall it's a good tool. Center is accurate within +/- .002, the retracting pin retracts smoothly and the chuck offers better grip than the standard, came with the lathe, drive center.

A downside; when working with softer hardwoods like oak and hickory, etc, the drive center offers great bite. When working with very dense wood like african blackwood and mopani any excess above the normal amount of stress on the piece will cause the spur center to slip requiring you to remove the workpiece and brush the spurs to get a good bite back. Kind of annoying but not a deal breaker. If every other spur were removed I believe it would be an exceptional tool. Either way, my standard drive center is a permanent bench warmer.

Nice, cleanly made tool. The retracting center pin works well to solve the problem of securing a piece of hard wood (by which I mean both hardwood and hard wood) without making a big guide hole or risking splitting the piece. The spring provides plenty of pressure to secure the piece between the centers as you crank the tailstock. However, after a few uses the pin stuck all the way in and could not be coaxed back out. This looks like a rare problem in other reviews, some of which cite long service life, so I requested a replacement, which I hope will hold up. The "crown" of multiple teeth is a mixed success. As hoped, it provides a stable center and gets a grip without needing to penetrate the wood deeply. On the other hand,the tradeoff is that if it slips in face grain it instantly mills itself a groove in which it spins. The usual four-tooth design digs in better (albeit deeper/with more difficulty) and holds better, but is harder to use with hard wood. Because there are multiple small teeth, it looks like you might work very close to the edge of the crown with less risk of the consequences if you goof and the tool encounters a tooth.

I must have received a defective drive center. The point is supposed to be spring loaded. The one I received is recessed inside of the spurs, will not move, stuck in this position and it is impossible to get the drive on center.

Thought it might be better than pounding a four lipped drive center into a wood block. Either I'm using it wrong or it indeed can't do the lob.
The prongs slips and saws a circle instead of holding the wood stock for turning.

I also have the Sorby version of this center and the PSI is just as good and only 1/3 the price. I have to put a best buy lable on this one.

This is the drive center I use for most of my spindle work. It's a very nicely made imitation of the Sorby Steb Center and so far has held up just fine. I also recommend the 5/8" version for smaller work (the smaller size has fewer teeth and doesn't bite into the wood as well, so this larger version is preferable unless you're turning something pretty small).
