Sorby #STB232 Original Stebcentre - 1-1/4 Inch x #2MT + Enlarge Image

Sorby #STB232 Original Stebcentre - 1-1/4" x #2MT

Item #: 78212
Includes Free Shipping

This revolutionary 1-1/4" spur drive center replaces traditional spur drives and gives all the great Stebcentre advantages. It combines a spring loaded center point with a ring of razor sharp teeth. By winding in the tail stock the degree of "bite" can be varied while still keeping the center point firmly located. This offers many advantages.

With a light setting this offers safety for the novice turner because the work piece simply stops revolving should a dig-in occur, rather than causing kick back. In time critical production turning, the teeth can be backed off with the point still in place, so the work piece 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.

Size refers to drive face diameter. Comes in diameters of 1/2", 7/8", and 1-1/4". Robert Sorby. England

Keeping Centered
By Bob Kolock on September 19, 2015

I bought this size and the 1/2" size for my new lathe and am very pleased with their quality. I am partial to Sorby stuff as I have many of their turning tools and recently got their ProEdge sharpener. I've seen steb centers for a lot less $, but I have come to respect the quality of the Sorby product line and bought these. Not disappointed at all and well with their price. Try one... I think you'll agree with me.
