We think that this is the best universal centre available today. There are two sealed bearings in the body and the working end has a taper for mounting the various interchangeable tips, guaranteeing that they run perfectly concentric. There is an ejector ring behind the tip which is operated by two tommy bars. The centre is supplied with three tips, a standard 60° cone for general work, a 9.5mm(3/8") diameter by 16mm(5/8") long point for small or close work and a cup or ring centre for open grain or split turning. In addition to the standard tips there are three additional tips, purchased separately, which will further increase the scope of the centre. We hope that you will agree that we have covered just about every possibility and that the Multi-head Centre deserves a place in your tool box. Also available as a complete package deal (718221 or 718222 ) with 3 additional tips.

Versatile and nicely made.I've only been using this for a week and already it's proving to be indispensable. My old live centre has been sitting on the shelf unused since this arrived. I just wish i'd bought one sooner rather than struggling with my somewhat chunky original. It's made access to remove the base chucking point of boxes mcuh easier when jam chucking.
