    [Woodturning] Drive center for chuck

    This is a little tool very useful for the lazy turner who doesn't want to remove its chuck and wants to rough turn a piece of wood between centers.

    This is a homemade live center, with cylindrical shank, that can be inserted in the chuck.

    It is made, like another drive center (the conical one) I have already showed :
    Homemade Wood Lathe Drive Center

    using a tap seat reamer (don't know the exact name for that).
    It makes a perfect grip for the wood.
    Cheers !
