Elio Safe Drive

Once I started using this drive most others in my tool box became redundant.  This safe and versatile drive centre is ideal for large irregular timber, natural edge burls or large logs.  I’ve used it to hold green birch logs 20” x 70” that I had to use a crane to mount on the lathe.  The large surface area and three adjustable pins account for the versatility.  When turning hard dense timber the pins can be adjusted down to a small point or when turning soft, spalted or thick barked timber they can be independently adjusted so the grip is secure.
